Harwood Marine is situated on the Clarence River in Northern New South Wales Australia.
The original Harwood Slipway and Engineering Company constructed a Slipway at the present site in 1969 with a capacity of 1000 tonnes and 50m LOA to service the marine vessels of the cane and fishing industries and racing yacht design and construction.
During 1970’s and 1980’s numerous Australian Navy and Army vessels were serviced at this site for major refits and repairs. Tugs and barges were also constructed as new builds as well as yachts and cargo vessels.
The present owners have had a working association with the site since 1979 and eventually purchased the property freehold in 1992. In 2006 the slipway was extended to 2,500 tonne capacity and was then later refurbished from 2014 – 2017 to ensure environmental and safety compliance for current and future operations. Loading areas were specifically strengthened to ensure heavy lift capacity for any further operations.
Our expertise and facilities are complimented by being situated in one of the most beautiful locations in Australia near the towns of Yamba and Iluka. We have easy access to three key forms of transport – Road (Pacific Highway), Rail (Grafton) and Sea (at the mouth of the Clarence River).
