There’s nothing quite like an Australian made boat, whether you’re into fishing our rivers and coastal waters, enjoying a family trip out on the water, or heading offshore in search of big game with mates.

Summit Marine has teamed up with Makocraft! Cutting edge boat designers and innovators since 2005, Makocraft are a globally recognised name in the boat manufacturing industry. Summit Marine and Makocraft aim to deliver the best value money can buy, to reshape the boat owner experience and, make it easy to explore everything our beautiful region has to offer.

Summit Marine is a locally owned dealership located in the pristine Ballina region. We believe boats are for all, the perfect addition to a family vacation, an afternoon with a glass of champagne or cold beverage on the water or a trip offshore chasing the big one. Better still, hook it up to the 4×4, or hoist the car topper onto the roof and explore the wonders of our beautiful country.

Let us help you get out there and explore life on the water.

If you look closer, specifically looking at the hull entry, it will reveal a very complex hull shape. The entry is an inverted ‘V’ flowing into a very full bow with a prominent 360-degree reverse chine. Most glass boat designers go straight for a Deep V design from bow to stern, we wanted some of that in the entry, but also wanted a super stable hull. What we ended up with is nothing short of amazing. We got the ride, we got dryness, we got the stability. Testing on day one and we were blown away.
