Providing a complete Townsville marine service
Angus James Smith founded Angus Smith Marine in Townsville in 1965. His love of fishing provided the respite from his busy public life as Mayor of the city of Townsville, a position
he held from 1952 to 1967.
In those early days of marine technologies, the first outboard was a 1.5hp British Seagull, which Angus and family used from their beach hut at Cungulla. At that stage and time Angus began to realise the future recreational potential of boats and outboard motors.
This Townsville marine based retail and service centre, affectionately known as Angus Smith Marine was formed.
Those early days saw an alliance with Angus Smith Marine and Evinrude with the big demand on the 18hp and 25hp Evinrude models rigged to a 12ft tinnie for estuary fishing, which is abundant in our waters. How times have changed.
Ian Smith, third son of Angus, being keen to learn the business spent six years working with Evinrude and Johnson motors. Beginning on the assembly line and graduating through the ranks of both service and sales representation to become service manager with their New Zealand operations, returning in 1975 to take over the family business.
With this background, the company takes pride in providing quality service. For all aspects of marine, boats, boats for sale and used boats providing a complete Townsville marine service.
