Committed to Producing High Quality Craft

Fine Entry Marine

Our Company

Fine Entry Marine is a soley owned family run business that was founded in Geraldton, Western Australia in 1995 by Tim and Michelle Browne and has become a well renowned Aluminium Boat Building Company. Tim has 35 years experience in aluminium boat building and has earned a reputation for building high performance, superior quality vessels.

In 20 years of operation Fine Entry Marine has produced vessels for the Oil & Gas, Charter and Fishing Industries and more recently moved into the construction of Pilot and Government vessels.  

Our Facility

In December 2011 we relocated to a much larger purpose built facility in Geraldton's marine precinct on the water's edge located at Lot 74, 199 Connell Road, Fisherman's Wharf.  The factory is professionally equipped to construct or refit 30 to 40 metre vessels or a number of smaller vessels simultaneously.

In 2009 Geraldton Boat Lifter’s commissioned a new travel lifter. The travel lifter has the capabilities to lift vessels with a beam of 10 metres and a maximum weight of 200 tonnes.  Our new premises enable us to lift larger vessels directly into and out of our factory located opposite the launching bay.  We are the largest marine precinct north of Perth with these lifting capabilities.


We have constructed numerous vessels for clients in the oil and gas, charter and fishing industries, many being repeat customers and we are the first company in Western Australia to have successfully purpose built a vessel in the North West of Australia in 2000.

Our vessels are built tough, have proven track records in strength and reliability and they maintain their value.  Over the last few years we have also been busy refitting a large number of ex cray fishing vessels for the oil and gas industry.  This has involved extensions, modifications, insulation, sullage systems, awnings and painting.  Our vessels are compliant with the Department of Transport's survey requirements that are continually changing.

Customer Support

We are highly committed to providing thorough and efficient service and support to a number of clients.  We recognise the need to maximise the operational availability of every vessel and will work alongside our clients to ensure they recieve quick, effective and efficient support.

Our qualified personnel have the resources and experience to provide emergency response, service, maintenance and comprehensive mobilisation and demobilisation of all vessels either on location or at our waterfront premises.


We work closely with Surveyors and third party representatives to achieve a high standard of survey.  We have previous experience with Lloyds, BV Survey, Indonesian Flag Survey and AMSA / NSCV - USL Code Survey.

Our Philosophy

We strive for our company motto 'Commitment to Excellence' ensuring our clients receive the best possible quality and service to suit each application.  We continue to build our reputation as a leading aluminium boat builder and repairer in regional Western Australia.
