Steber International is a leader in Australian boat manufacturing and industrial composite technology since 1947.

Steber manufactures high quality boats for fishing, charter, patrol, sea rescue, medical support, surveillance and general boating use.

All Steber boats are individually designed and built to suit their purpose, with a quality of manufacture that ensures a long service life and the capability to put to sea when many other vessels need to return to port.

Our core business of composite component manufacture is all undertaken in our climate controlled factory ensuring all laminating is carried out within humidity and temperature parameters allowing 24 hour production when required.

Stebercraft is an Australian owned and operated family company with a firm commitment to provide a high quality product with excellent customer service.
