ABOUT US Tim's Story

Tim Stessl Marine was established after recognising a gap in the market for servicing clients with an array of boating needs. Tim Stessl Marine is owned and operated by Tim & Sally Stessl, a name synonymous in the boating industry for over 40 years.

Tim himself has over 30 years’ experience building, modifying and selling new and used boats as well as offering pre-purchase consultation. Offering clients the very best service in new and used boat sales, repairs and general fabrication, boat modifications, detailing and specialised custom boat building for that special, one of a kind boat you have always wanted.

In addition to Tim Stessl Marine, Tim also owns Makocraft Boats – a well-known and respected Aluminium Australian boat brand, celebrating its 20th birthday in 2025. Tim Stessl Marine is the local Gold Coast agent for Makocraft Boat sales and Tim also stocks Dunbier Trailers and Tohatsu Outboards, both complimentary to Makocraft hulls.

​Tim Stessl Marine also has a fully stocked chandlery store on the Gold Coast where you can pick up all your fishing and boating supplies including Icey Tek Ice Boxes and accessories, Garmin & Fusion electronics and sounders, Relaxn seats, Railblaza accessories and Black Ops ASSALT Boat Wash just to name a few.


Take the hassle out of selling your boat, and let Tim Stessl Marine do it for you. ​We will list your boat, answer all customer inquiries and conduct site inspections. Contact us today to discuss your options.
