Dave's Boatyard

Dave's Boatyard  has been around for almost 30 years in different parts of the far north and as far as Darwin. Dave's Boatyard is a family business owned by David and Joanne Povis .We have 4 kids together  Tavis - Lee , Jessica , Jason - Jack , Max -  Rileigh . My qualification starts as a Refrigeration  Mechanic, Marine Engineer, Master Class 5 Skipper and now boat building. My business associates and all those involved in the yard are all professionals of many different fields ( Computer Technicians, Engineers, Electricians, Plumbers, Welders) and all of us enjoy the totally laid back approach of the yards atmosphere , yet maintain a professional approach to all . Our passion is all about boating and adventure . We are always planning recreation time where we will take our 21' Trojan on some touching journeys across many miles of coastal waters. Our  ventures include Cooktown to Cape  Granville  over 3 weeks, many times from  Lucinda to Cairns via the Hinchinbrook Channel. Our latest journey was to tow our trusty steed to Weipa over 800 km  of really shitty road then take all 6 of us  up the west coast of Queensland to the Torres Strait, just camping and threatening a fish or two . After all that, I want to repair or sell your boat for you,  fix your engine, or just have a chat - We are all about a YES solution .

Lots more has happened since we first posted this website, and we have been on a lot more fun adventures to far away places. Including PNG and the Solomon Islands on our larger vessel The Lady Emily.          LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU
