Boats for Film and Television

Denman Marine has experience in the provision of boats for the film and television industry.

We can either provide a completed boat and support services as we did for the FFA's commercial for Australia's bid for the Soccer World Cup (seen below, shot on location at Cradle Mountain Tasmania) or we can provide basic construction of vessels to any design that can be finished by the relevant art department (as we did for Walden Media's Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie - see below).

Short notice builds can usually be accommodated and attention to detail is a specialty. We also have Naval Architect facilities available for design purposes.

Confidentiality is assured.

With our lower production costs than mainland builders, we can keep your budget on track.

If you would like further information on what Denman Marine can offer your project please contact us.
