Company History:

Since incorporation of the company in 1986, the business has grown from a residential pontoon design and construction company to a recognised privately owned Queensland marine infrastructure contractor specialising in all forms of maritime projects and servicing all areas of Australia.

In the past twenty Eight years The Jetty Specialist have designed and constructed some of Australia’s most notable and award winning Marina Developments.

The majority of projects completed have ranged from AU$ 20,000 to $12,000,000 million dollars and above.

Flexibility of design and construction makes the company unique in the Australian Market along with the combined experience of the Director and staff who are long standing loyal employees with extensive boating and boat building experience.

Neil Morris also has an extensive knowledge of the ownership and economical operation of marina developments through his directorship and involvement with Port Binnli Pty Ltd a recognised waterfront property development company that owns and operates the Mackay Marina and Village and the Raby Bay Marina both in Queensland. Mackay Marina having just won the Marina Industries Association 2013 award for a second time for a Commercial Marina with more than 140 berths. His skills in designing marinas for the maximum return on investment for The Jetty Specialist clients, is second to none.

In 1996 the company implemented a growth strategy by investing and purchasing a substantive amount of piling equipment including three barges for undertaking commercial works. This has subsequently grown to a fleet of 7 piling barges of varying capacity and sizes plus 4 pusher barges and other miscellaneous work boats and equipment that are all registered and in survey to Queensland Maritime Safety requirements.

Again these barges, crawler cranes and piling equipment, now operated under Morris Equipment Hire Pty Ltd, provide a flexibility within the market that is unique and allows for the placement of the right piling equipment to each and every specific project.
