Go Wild on Boats!


We’re looking for people to join our team who know their boats.

We’re big on having a great team of people around us who love boats, enjoy building and creating things, plus learning and contributing ideas. In fact, when you work at Mackay's, you’re working alongside Olympic medalists, world champions x12 titles, divers, fishermen, family cruisers, and 9 nationalities.

  So if this sounds like a bit of you, we’d love to give you the chance to be part of the action too.

The roles in our boat building business are wide and varied, including CNC machining, engineering, laminating, fit-out of systems, logistics, sales, operations, and painting.

Other bonuses include

  • Apprenticeships
  • Excellent pay rates
  • An excellent Health and safety record
  • Career progression opportunities
  • Some job flexibility around regattas
  • Afterhours access to tools
  • Social club activities

We’ve been in boat building since the 1960’s and have developed some of the best high-performance dinghy boat building processes around so when you join us, you’ll be working alongside some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry.  Plus, with our comprehensive health and safety programme, we make sure our team work in a safe, supportive and fun environment.

It’s an exciting time to be in the boat building industry - there’s nothing better than building the fastest Olympic class boats in the world or working on a new project that helps to create world champions.
