We are an Australian family owned business employing local trades people. For over 25 Years Seatamer has been building customised fishing boats. The endurance of our PTF boats is measured in engines. That’s right, not how many hours but how many engines has the boat had. Some customer have had 5 engines and over 20,000 combined hours in their Seatamer over 15 years.

All our boats are built here in Australia, you can visit the factory, meet the staff and watch your boat being built.

We work closely with AMSA – Australian Maritime Safety Authority and several leading Naval Architects.

When ordering a vessel you can choose from our standard cabin configuration and layouts or you can choose to totally customise your cabin and cockpit layout to suit your needs. You can design your cockpit layout with our expert advice.

Seatamer also supplies custom accessories such as kill tanks, live bait tanks, rocket launchers, pods, rail work, all customized to suit your vessel.

The Seatamer team take great pride in high standards of quality workmanship and performance so when your vessel is complete you know you will have a boat that will perform and last.

We only use 5083 marine grade structural aluminium, typically 5mm bottom, 4mm sides and 3mm cabin. We only design and build to the commercial vessel standard. This makes for very strong and durable boats. So when you are miles out at sea you will feel confident and safe in a Seatamer.
