Ship Building History
Located in the Western Australian port of Geraldton, Geraldton Boat Builders Pty Ltd was established in 1984 with the focus of constructing high performance offshore fishing boats capable of handling the challenges thrown up by the unforgiving local weather conditions and coastline.
With the development of boat designs and quality builds along with the Company's well established international reputation as a leader in the high speed aluminium vessel industry, the Directors moved to reposition the company as a global business.
That reputation can be attributed to the success experienced by
the Company in delivering a total of over 70 vessels to the
Singapore Police Coast Guard and Malaysian Water Police. Following
these successes, offshore orders for patrol vessels have continued
to flood in.
Coupled with this international reputation, Strategic Marine landed our first crew boat contracts building eight vessels for Svitzer / PT Aquaria and EMAS Offshore.
In recent years the shipbuilding company has reached its goal to become a market leader in the Crew Boat industry, securing contracts to build over 25 vessels reputable for Malaysian, Indonesian, Singaporean, Australian, Dutch and Mexican companies.
Strategic Marine's Vietnamese Shipyard was officially opened in 2009 with the intension to break into steel shipbuilding. The Company quickly found success in the sector after winning contracts for two steel hulled Dive Support Vessel for Marfeild, and a Floating Dry Dock for the West Australian Government.
Construction and project management techniques have been developed by the international shipbuilding company to improve the quality of its vessels while reducing production costs. This ensures clients receive excellent value for money and continues to strengthen Strategic Marine's position within the global shipbuilding sector.
The Company's highly trained designers and production staff work continually to improve plate development and manufacturing techniques to maximise structural strength and reduce construction time without compromising the integrity of the vessels they build and deliver.
The Company's commitment to Australian Standard Business Management Systems provides Strategic Marine with a stable platform to provide Clients with premium quality yet economic offshore construction services.
