Why Choose Quintrex Boats


Established in 1945 Quintrex has long been an Australian boating favourite. Producing over 80 models, Quintrex is synonymous with quality – and with such an extensive range there’s a boat to suit every boatie.

As Australia’s largest and leading manufacturer of aluminium boats, Quintrex remains at the forefront of aluminium boat design. Our continuous research and development program led to the implementation of stretch-forming technology to first create the award winning Millennium Hull and Flared Bow and now the Millennium Blade Hull. The success of Quintrex’s innovative designs has awarded the brand ‘Aluminium Boat of the Year’ over ten times.

Quintrex boats hold their value


Quintrex boats have a reputation for value; new or second hand. Their resale value is one of the best on the market – that’s if you’re lucky to get your hands on a second hand model!

When you purchase a Quintrex you’re investing in endless days of fun on the water and a highly sought after boat brand that holds it’s value for many years.

Quintrex’s state of the art factory is an 18,000m2 purpose built facility in the Gold Coast Marine Precinct, producing up to 30 boats per day and 12,000 boats per year. We export extensively to over 15 countries incorporating the South Pacific, Asia, Europe and the Indian Ocean.

« The flared Bow was first released in 1968 and has become a permanent fixture on most Quintrex models. The stretch forming technology used to create this marvel is just as revolutionary today as it was then. The design fundamentals used to create the flared Bow paved the way for the development of the Millennium Hull and now the Millennium Blade Hull.
