Our History

Gippsland Boat Supplies was one of the first established marine businesses in Victoria, starting as one of the original Evinrude Outboard dealerships in the 1960s as a locally owned boat and car dealership. Initially dealing in wooden boats, the company progressed to fiberglass and aluminium boats as they became available. The current dealer principal, Ray Duxbury, started in the business in 1972, progressing through various aspects of the company from office work and spare parts to vehicle and boat sales.

In 1975, the company moved away from motor vehicle sales and became a dedicated marine business. 35 years after its breakaway formation as a sole marine dealership, Gippsland Boat Supplies is continuing to provide quality Australian made boating packages. Among our main boat franchises are Quintrex aluminium boats and Caribbean fiberglass boats, franchises which have been held by the company for 35 years. We have also been agents for Haines Hunter fiberglass boats for the past 25 years and proudly agents for Evinrude Outboards since the founding of the company. We offer quality Quintrex/Mercury BMT packages and also stock Polycraft boats, Yellowfin plate aluminium boats, Seadoo personal watercraft and Mackay Trailers. We also stock a wide range of quality pre-owned fiberglass and aluminium boats.

After being in business for almost 40 years, Gippsland Boat Supplies has a strong financial base. Not only can we sell you a great range of premium Australian made products, we will continue to be here to provide personal service and support for our customers in the future.
