Saltwater Commercial Workboats and its affiliates operate some of the largest marine manufacturing factories in China.

We have extensive experience in “Plate Aluminium” marine construction and welding and hold several patents for marine equipment. All Saltwater Commercial Workboats are constructed from DNV certified aluminium which is imported from France and all material is computer cut on-site to exacting specifications from the naval architect.

Welding work on all vessels is completed to the full welding specifications and patterns as per DNV certification requirements.

Our workforce of over 2,000 employees ensures we can get the largest of builds or multiple orders completed on time and to the highest standards.


Perth, Western Australia (Head Office)

Saltwater Marine has been one of the leading boatyards in Perth for over 25 years. We supply all of the leading outboard brands along with Volvo, Yanmar and Scania and has a team of 7 full time fully trained outboard motor technicians and electrical fitout technicians.

During the last 19 years, Saltwater Marine has sold and fitted out approx 1000 vessels. Saltwater has extensive experience in all aspects of survey compliance in small to medium vessels, including design and installation of manual bilge systems with multiple pickup points to multiple valve manifold mainframe, all electrical installations including multiple battery systems, inverters, battery charges, auto-pilots and sounder GPS units.

Saltwater also has an intimate understanding of all underfloor fuel piping requirements including emergency shut off valves and fire protection systems. Along with the initial outboard installations including twin ram hydraulic steering units. Saltwater Marine has had a long association with Western Australia’s leading parts suppliers and only utilises the best quality products available to the market.

Once arrived into Perth, the vessels are then collected by Saltwater Marine who then customs fits and adjusts vessel to the custom trailer and then completes the entire fitout of the vessel in consultation with the assigned surveyor from the department of Transport, Western Australia or relevant international authority. This process begins from under the floor where all fuel and bilge systems are installed – allowing for hull welding inspections to be carried out by department of Transport. Following this, Saltwater Marine provide the entire package on site in Fremantle including full safety equipment. Upon the completion of the fitout, Saltwater Marine (in conjunction with the Naval Architect) conducts all sea trials, stability and incline testing and upon approval – provide the client with the survey certification certificate.
