for both local and international clients. We specialise in refits and

Many satisfied owners have returned for their second or even third boats, some of which are moored near our

workshop and available for inspection in at Gulf Harbour Marina, which is located just 20 nautical miles north

of Auckland City. Brin Wilson is now headed by Nick Saull, one of a number of current staff who learned their

trade as apprentices with the company. The staff are experienced in fiberglass and composite construction,

although timber, including traditional construction techniques, remains the company's forte. The sons of the

founder, Richard and Bob Wilson, maintain an ongoing association with the company.

"Brin Wilson Boat Builders Ltd has come a long way from the days its founder built a motorsailer in his friend’s
back yard. If anything, the company’s rich history demonstrates that to be successful over the long
haul – in this case, 57 years – a company must change, evolve and grow."
