From the late 1940’s though to the 1960’s and in to the 70’s, almost every State and Territory in Australia had it’s own manufacturer of Outboard Motors. Generally speaking however, very little is currently known about the outboards or the manufacturing firms that produced them.
The aim of this blog is therefore to gather and share information, thus acting to preserve our Australian Outboard Manufacturing History.
We do our best to ensure that everything posted here has been verified through digitized newspapers, original advertisements, magazine articles and by other means available to us. Pages are updated as and when new information comes to hand, so it’s worthwhile checking in regularly to ensure you have the latest information available.
If you have any information that you are able to share, be it knowledge of the outboards, manufactures, business owners or the employees who built them, or copies of sales brochures, manuals, adverts and magazine articles etc, then please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or by email. Our contact details can be found in the top right hand corner of this page.
We take this opportunity to thank those who have contributed thus far, and hope that all visitors enjoy the information and images presented here.
