Business owner, Mark Nash has over 20 years’ experience in aluminium fabrication and completed his apprenticeship as an Aluminium Fabrication Engineer in 1998. Prior to starting his own business, Mark worked over east and abroad to hone his skills as an aluminium fabricator. In WA he has worked for two other well-known boat manufacturers, building custom boats and working on commercial vessels.
Mark started Wakemaker Marine in 2005 and with a handpicked team of skilled tradesmen, it has gone from strength to strength, moving several times to allow for its inevitable expansion. Our most recent move to the Henderson Boat Lifters Compound in the Australian Marine Complex allows us to provide our commercial customers with all the necessary trades and facilities to complete extensive repairs, modifications and fabrication all conveniently located in the same compound.

Wakemaker Marine has a high standard of workmanship and an ability to produce sleek designs that are suited to our customer’s needs with exceptional functionality. We have won several awards for our custom aluminium boats, including the coveted title of Overall Boat of the Year. Other awards include the Custom Aluminium Boat of the Year and Trailerable Boat of the Year. The judges’ feedback reflects Wakemaker Marine’s prowess in fabrication:
“The winner was a boat that could hold up its head in competition anywhere in the world. Design, construction and finish were all first class, yet cost was kept to a remarkably modest level. On-water ability is also excellent, as is the sheer usability of the boat.”
“This boat, with its highly complex hull shape, was almost indistinguishable from a fibreglass boat – both in appearance and in its sea-going abilities. Attention to detail of design, equipment and fit-out was exemplary.” (See our Custom Boats and Modifications)
In 2011 Mark was contracted to advise and oversee Chinese operations of aluminium boat building before returning to the helm of Wakemaker Marine.
Wakemaker Marine also services the mining sector producing structural aluminium components and products such as safety rails, gates, gangways, crossover bridges, safety cages and ladder cages; meeting stringent specifications, including welding codes.
