75 Years of Dream Destinations with Quintrex

75 Years of Dream Destinations

From humble beginnings in 1945, a big dream for two entrepreneurs quickly flourished into a big reality with Quintrex quickly establishing itself as one of Australia’s most sought-after aluminium boat brands.


Today, as it celebrates its big diamond anniversary, with the brand clocking over to its 75th year of production, Quintrex is as popular as ever.


With a commitment to delivering quality and introducing groundbreaking technologies, the 75-year-young brand continues to make waves in the boating industry as it progressively evolves to deliver a next-to-none on-water experience.


“We are proud to say that there wouldn’t be a boatie in Australia who doesn’t recognise the Quintrex name and that’s because of the quality of product we have continued to produce over the last 75-years” Sam Heyes, Telwater General Manager said.


“Throughout the 75-years of manufacturing, innovation has been at the core of our business, with a dedicated Research and Development team underpinning the evolution of our product line. This is to ensure we are not only meeting customer demand but also delivering new features to the industry that take our customers boating experience to another level.”


The Quintrex factory doors formally opened in the emerald city of Sydney by founder; Terry Quantrill. Soon after, in 1946, the first dealership was signed on, with Hunts Marine (formerly Marine City) continuing to be an avidly successful Quintrex dealer to this day.


It was only up from here, as the company released its Flared Bow design across most Quintrex models in 1968, utilising stretch-formed aluminium. Stretch-forming technology allows Quintrex to mould the hull of boats in a way that results in a dry, smooth ride and increased stability.


The revolutionary Flared Bow paved the way for continued success, as the company evolved its stretch forming technology, which saw the creation of the Millennium Hull in 2005, then the Blade Hull in 2013.


From its conception, the company has been led by an overarching business model of “Boating Made Easy”, which still drives the progression of its products to this day.


Most recently, Quintrex released its Apex Hull. Formulated through years of proven research and development, the Apex Hull is not only built tough, but also delivers unparalleled on-water performance and stands out as one of the most modern hull designs on the water. 


Over the years, the brand has been awarded 'Aluminium Boat of the Year' more than ten times as a direct result of the success of Quintrex's innovative designs.


“Because we partner with the 60 best boat dealers in Australia, who are spread across the country, we are proudly able to offer the Quintrex boating lifestyle to every person, living in every part of Australia,” Sam Heyes said. “We now also export to over 15 countries, including in the South Pacific and Asia.”


Quintrex is a proudly Australian built brand, owned by BRP; a global leader in the world of powersports.
