Through hard work, dedication and continued skills development, Dale has obtained valuable experience and expertise in a multitude of industries.
Dale’s career has seen him excel in the Marine and Road Transport sectors. Starting as a vehicle body builder apprentice at 18, he has continually expanded his knowledge of all types of fabrication, from building Road Trains to High-Speed Ferries to custom Trailer Boats.
In 1997 Dale had the opportunity of learning Computer Aided Design (CAD) and was been able to introduce these skills into the Transportation and Marine products.
Early in Dale’s career he progressed to management roles in both the Transport and Marine industries which included producing boats for the Australian Market in China.
Custom Works was founded in 2007 by Dale and has been operating under his values of Quality and Integrity ever since to produce boats and trailers that perform above his customers’ expectations. Dale’s boats are widely known for their excellent seakeeping ability and are built to last. Many of the fishing guides in the NT use Custom Works boats and trailers. These boats and trailers are used day in, day out, so Dale seeks out their specific feedback on his boats and trailers which is then included in the ongoing design and development of Custom Works products. The combination of experience gained throughout his career and taking on board practical experiences of customers has helped him develop and deliver the trusted and reputable boats Custom Works is known for.
