Boat building, maintenance, salvage & repairs

Pelican Slipways is a friendly boatyard on Weinam Creek in Redland Bay, Queensland. 

Our primary focus is on maintaining timber full keeled vessels (and other types of boats) in service to the maritime community. 

We are a small operation with two slipways, and a dedicated crew to look after you. We pride ourselves on careful management of your boat, and insist on excellent environmental practices in the yard.

Our costs are outlined below, please contact us directly via phone or email if you have any questions, or to make a booking.

Boats up to 40 ton displacement can be supported by the keel which is the best method for timber vessels. We also have a multihull cradle.

We stock a good range of primers, antifouling, topcoats and other paints, resins, fasteners and anodes etc – please arrange with us in advance for particular materials you need to ensure we can get it at the best price for you.
