Neil Surtees couldn’t find a boat on the market that met his quality, expectations and requirements for functionality, so he set about building his own. Little did he know that his creation would develop into a brand that represented a new level of craftsmanship in the boat industry. First it was his friends that recognised the unique design elements and functions that made Neil's boat better than any other they had seen. Today, more than 15 years later, 36 staff build over 400 boats a year for people in New Zealand, Australia and throughout the Pacific region.
Being a boat enthusiast himself, Russell Cairns got the ball rolling for Surtees boats on the east coast of Australia. And since then, the customer feedback has been the same “ Surtees crafts are built by a person who knows what Boaties need.”
Today, Russell Cairns Marine & 4x4 is proud to have earned a spot as Australia’s largest Surtees Dealer. Surtees models range from the 4.85 Workmate to the 7.3 Gamefisher.
Surtees boats have won 15 major awards and come with features other boats dream about, such as:
- Six fully welded underfloor stringers for superior strength.
- Deep V hull and spray deflecting chines for a smoother more comfortable ride.
- Port and starboard buoyancy chambers.
- Unique trailer catch for easy launching.
- Six year hull warranty.
- Water ballasted for maximum stability at anchor or on the move.
