The Austral Company
The Austral Company was founded by the Vincent family in 1940 and we are proud to say the third generation of family members are now operating the business. Austral are one of the few companies in the world dedicated solely to the manufacture of marine propellers. We produce propellers of all types up to 72″ (1.83m) diameter for use on both pleasure and commercial craft.
Austral are marine propeller specialists and as such our plant and equipment is purpose built with this aim alone. Our facility is totally self contained and includes a CAD/CAM design centre, pattern shop, modern non ferrous foundry, machine shop with CNC capability, finishing section and quality control department. State of the art technology is used extensively throughout the plant in propeller design, tooling manufacture, production scheduling, electronic propeller balancing, quality inspection and calibration.

Austral prides itself on its ability to satisfy a total propeller design concept within a short manufacturing lead-time. We manufacture propellers of superior styles, to a high quality standard and at a “value for money” price. Most importantly, we can select a propeller size which custom matches the boat, engine and gearbox combination.
