Firmans Marine evolved as a family business when the founders Fred & Jean Firman and their son Ray moved from service stations, to caravans and then onto boats, marine equipment and fishing gear in 1971. The business grew steadily until two of Rays sons Brian and Gary purchased it in 1988. They were joined soon after by their sister Sandra and a few years later by their other brother David.

The year 2000 saw Brian and his wife Brenda take 100% ownership of the company with Gary, David and Sandra leaving for other fields. The business operated on Pandora Road up until 2005 when the opportunity arose to move onto Prebensen drive into huge purpose built premises which is where we currently operate.

Firmans Marine has dominated the Boat and Marine equipment market in the Hawkes Bay area for decades and today continues to offer the industries premier brands backed by generations of knowledge and professional service.
