Welcome to our new website. We have added more content and features so even if you have visited the site before I encourage you to check it out. The "Parts and Accessories" page now includes an interactive copy of our supplier's parts catalogue. We have also expanded the "Repairs and Upgrades" page.
Monaro Marine Ltd. designs and builds its own unique brand of semi-custom 21' to 30' fibreglass power boats. We also sell used Monaros, and do expert repairs and custom upgrades on all types of fibreglass boats. Our rugged all-weather boats have cruised the west coast and explored the oceans as far north as the 75 deg. north latitude (1000 miles from the North Pole).
All of our models are trailerable including our largest model making it more versatile than many other boats the same length yet maintaining comfortable accommodations for extended trips.
We are taking a Monaro 27 built in 1998 and turning it into a 298. Also, it will be repowered with a new Volvo D6-370 diesel engine. We are video documenting this project as it progresses. Click on the photo to go to the first video.
The 2014 Rendezvous will be in July. The date and location has not yet been scheduled. Stay tuned.
Environment Canada has increased their emissions standards which took effect January 1, 2012. Any new Volvo V8 gas engine sold in Canada requires a catalyst with exception to the V8-300.
Our latest model, Monaro 257, was on display at the 2012 Vancouver Boat Show. This boat features attractive new design elements and state of the art equipment. Read the review from Pacific Yachting, June 2012 edition or find it here.
A Monaro sport fishing boat is in the design and tooling stage. It will be based on our existing 24' hull design which has a proven track record for efficiency and rough water performance.
Design drawings and renderings were on display at the 2014 Vancouver Boat Show. Construction has begun and we are hoping to have the first one complete early in 2015.
Design drawings will be posted on our site soon. We will also be producing videos on the development of the boat.
The 2013 Monaro newletter is available here.
