O'Brien Boats

Peter’s aim was to build vessels that were fast, strong, economical to run and easily maintained. His layouts were designed to suit both the crew and the client. 

Peter O’Brien, the founder of O’Brien Boats, started in the boat building industry in the early sixties. With the interest in game fishing and the need for fast, extremely maneuverable boats soon became evident - this resulted in Peter setting up his own business in 1978.

The O’Brien family has an extensive history, and a host of experience in the game fishing industry. They have held many Australian and World records over the years. Peter has stayed very active in game fishing both as an Angler and as a Captain. Peter’s expertise in this area has resulted in winning many game fishing tournaments both for the boats and anglers.
