Marine Engineering Consultants was founded by owner and manager Murray Owen. Murray first made his break working for Lloyd Ships as an apprentice fitter before securing the job as Engineering and Slipway manager constructing approx 12 luxury motor yachts from 24 to 35 metres and carried out just as many refits. Murray was later approached by Australian Yacht Builders (AYB) to become operations manager in the construction of the vessel ‘The Other Woman’ a 192’ all aluminium ketch rig luxury motor yacht. ‘The Other Woman’ was like no other yacht of it’s time. Murray spent time in the USA managing and operating ‘The Other Woman’ cruising the East Coast, Bahama’s and extended periods in Ft Lauderdale, Palm Beach and New York.

Many staff from Marine Engineering Consultants have been with the company from when it first opened the doors in 1992 and worked along side Murray at AYB and Lloyds. All of MEC’s staff have a passion for boats and perfecting the art of building and servicing superior motor yachts.

After starting out at Hope Harbour on the Gold Coast, Murray moved the business to Gold Coast City Marina in 2001, along with a complete engineering workshop running out of Brisbane, this saw MEC expand. MEC prides it’s self on the return of valuable customers year after year. Over the years MEC has carried out numerous repair and refit jobs on Fantasea Cruisers and Cruise Whitsundays along with Hayman Island Luxury Passenger Ferries prompting Murray to start up a branch in Mackay. MEC has always been a family business with Murray’s eldest son completing his engineering apprenticeship on the Gold Coast and taking on the role as Mackay’s Branch Manager in 2006. Mackay has proven to be a valuable asset to the MEC family serving the Mackay and Whitsunday area.

Marine Engineering Consultants has always focused on the Superyacht Industry and have serviced Luxury Superyachts such as Ilona, Valkyrie, Boadacia, Lion Wind and Panagea and carried out major refits to Dreamtime, Altantic Princess, Emerald Lady and made a major contribution to the engineering and fabrication refit of Ulysses. Murray is currently a committee member of Superyacht Base Gold Coast and on the board of directors of Superyacht Base Australia, travelling to some of the worlds largest boat shows during which he has been able to promote confidence in Australia’s marine industries to many overseas owners and skippers.
