The Southbound Boat factory is located in the South West Region of Western Australia in the coastal town of Vasse/Busselton.

Southbound Boats is owned and operated by Benj Pethick, a passionate offshore angler and boating enthusiast. A highly qualified shipwright with over 25 years of cutting edge boat building experience and expertise.

We might be a “small fish in a big ocean” but we have big ideas on building premium quality custom offshore trailer boats for our customers.

We have been building custom aluminium offshore fishing trailer boats since 2000.


Our reputation is put on the line with every boat we build.

“As a Commercial Skipper and previously overseen the build of multiple large commercial vessels.
I found Southbound boats to be very accommodating with customizing the build of my 6.9 Island Pro.
The quality of the workmanship exceeded my expectations and the entire build process was a pleasure.
In other words I’m wrapped with the end product”.
