Frontier Marine Services Darwin Boat

The Frontier Marine story so far....

 Frontier Marine Services started as a passionate family business in 2009, operated by Directors, David and Leanne Pears. Dave’s belief and committment at sea, creating enjoyable, memorable and positive boating experiences for the wider community drove him to establish Frontier Marine Services. 

What originally started as a hobby rewiring friends’ vessels and cars with a range of “Bling” has now turned into a thriving business servicing the recreational and commercial marine industry in Darwin and the Northern Territory.

Frontier Marine Services is now proud to hold an NT Electrical Contractors Licence and support highly qualified staff including a dedicated administration team, A – Grade Electricians, apprentices and school based trainees.

Frontier Marine Services also provides SIMRAD certified technicians and dealership of NAVICO and GARMIN products. Repairs can be conducted, depending on the scope of work, either at our workshop, on the water, or at the customers place of business and is always carried out in a professional, timely and honest manner.
