Re-survey vessels

With in excess of 30 years experience in manufacturing surveyed vessels, ranging in size from 28ft to 52ft, it is a simple procedure to re-survey vessels or up-grades on existing surveyed craft to a higher category. Our long experience and commitment with testing equipment, specialized staff, Surveyors and Naval Architects and close association with all Government Authorities, ensures complete customer satisfaction.

Re-power vessels

Removal of old engines, upgrading engine room, re-fit of associated plumbing and equipment prior to installing engines is all part of the Steber re-power procedures. Engineering calculations of shafting, propellers, bearings etc. all contribute to a professional, well planned, re-engine installation that a customer will be proud of.

Motor & genset servicing

Motor and Gen Set servicing is generally carried out by a local service agent in the home port of the owner. If you are not satisfied with the local service agent, Steber International can arrange alternate servicing and spare parts closest to the engine manufacturer as well as overseeing the technician to meet private or Government servicing requirements.

Jet engine installation

During the 35 years of Motor Cruiser production, Steber International have installed many single or twin jet powered vessels, in fact 2 of the late Kerry Packer’s 40ft chase boats were re-engineered at the Steber factory by removing sterndrives and fitting water jets, with over 40 knot top speed and very little maintenance, the crew are delighted with this vessel. Steber International approach every project by obtaining the right advice from the Jet manufacturer to ensure best performance.

Engineering upgrade

Engineering records for all craft manufactured at the Steber International factory are stored (archived) for later retrieval. Engineering upgrade via re-powering, or just improving engineering with the latest technology is a simple process for Steber International. Following the upgrade, new certificate for engineering will be issued to the owner and once again, records are stored for future retrieval. All non Steber vessels can also be catered for and over the years Steber has re-fitted many vessels with great success.
