Our Story

Kingfisher Cruisers started back in 1995 when John Vella and his shipwright son-in-law Per Andresen designed and built the Kingfisher 50', 54' and 56' flybridge cruisers.

A total of 34 Kingfishers were built over the next 12 years. They are all known to be a superior product in all areas from hull performance, soft ride and safety, to high quality, style and comfort.They were all semi custom built vessels, where we accommodated the need of discerning buyers who wished to customize their boat’s layout and furnishing to reflect their own individual requirements.

We produced boats for clients in New Zealand, Hong Kong and the USA, plus a 50′ VIP boat for the Royal Australian Navy.

After John Vella retired in 2007, we moved to “The Boat Works” at Coomera and the 3rd generation boat builder, Christian Andresen, has since come onboard together with our dedicated team of highly skilled shipwrights.
