About Us

Noosa Marine specialise in custom boat building services and work closely consulting with the owners and designers to create a craft that will suit their needs. When taking on a project, the client can be assured that their project will get full dedication with an outstanding result.

Julian Griffiths founded Noosa Marine in 2008 after a 25 year career honing his skills at various boat yards. He learnt his craft at Norman Wright and Sons in Brisbane in the late eighties, and has followed his passion as both a sailor and shipwright ever since.

Julian has been responsible for some very impressive boats on the water, including ten 33 foot Farrier trimarans , four Pescott design Whitehavens and most recently a G Force 15 ‘Mojo’ along with ‘Kato’ that was launched in May 2014 which is a Schionning G Force 1800 design.

Julian Griffiths and the boys at Noosa Marine are the consummate professionals when it comes to building a state of the art multi. MOJO is testimony to the care and dedication Julian puts in to the total build process. His experience as a multihull sailor provided invaluable background and confidence for me when it came to decision making on any aspect of the build process and choice of sails, rig, deckware and internal fitout.
MOJO has now sailed and raced over 20000 nautical miles throughout Asia and Australia and it still looks like new thanks to Noosa Marine’s quality workmanship. Julian’s post build support has been exemplary…..nothing is too much trouble.
It is for all these fine qualities that I wholeheartedly endorse Julian and the boys at Noosa Marine as your next builder.

Julian has built 2 trimarans for me over the years, all to the same amazing standard. They were both Farrier designed, and they were that well built that Ian Farrier commented to me how impressed he was with Julian’s work. Julian is a great boat builder and sailor and is easy to deal with, always professional, honest and reliable. I was able to easily sell my last boat due to the fact that it was professionally built by Julian, who has earned himself a great reputation in the industry. You’ll never regret having Noosa Marine build your boat.

I had spoken to Tony Grainger and Jeff Schionning at length with regards to building a 60ft Performance Catamaran. When I asked them both who they would recommend to build the boat for me, they both said Julian Griffiths of Noosa Marine.The project went ahead and we decided on building a Schionning G Force 1800.
Julian and the team built KATO on time and to budget. She is arguably one of the best built and fastest 60 ft cruising catamatans in the world right now. I have since become good friends with Julian and if I ever wanted to build another boat I would not hesitate to have the team at Noosa Marine build it for me.
