Graham Barclay’s connection in the Marine Industry was first established in 1965 when former Australian and world rated water skiing champion Graham Barclay was lured into the commercial side of the sport. He entered the industry and along with wife Kay took on Johnson Motors and Quintrex boat franchises selling them from their home in Forster. In the early 70’s they opened new premises on the Tuncurry Waterfront named “Boatland Marine”
In mid-1975 Graham and Kay sold Boatland Marine and followed other business interests. 10 years on they returned to the industry and was based in Forster, the business rapidly outgrew its premises and they soon realised what was needed to maintain a high profile and be competitive in the industry.
