It is a pleasure to recommend Steber International.

I was Marine Rescue NSW Fleet Manager and Project Manager for the recent Steber contract to build four 38′ rescue vessels. I retired from that position at the end of 2011 on the completion and delivery of the vessels.

A total of 15 further Steber vessels are being considered in the 34′ to 48′ range over the next five years. I feel I am in a very good position to recommend them to any organisation who would be interested in dealing or contracting their services.

Marine Rescue NSW (MRNSW) has had an excellent relationship with this company over many years* in the provision of equipment, supplies and services. We have found that the company personnel possess a high level of expertise, knowledge and experience which assisted MRNSW in identifying the systems and information necessary to achieve its goals. Their attention to detail and follow up ensured the best possible outcomes.

They have a high level of customer service and are always willing to assit at all levels of MRNSW, from volunteers through to senior management. Chris Elford was the main technical contact whom I rate very highly as an expert in his field and who is always willing to give advice as required.

The current fleet of Steber vessels comprises of eight vessels in the 28′, 34′, 38′ and 41′ range with all crew and support crew delighted with their performance in the extreme SAR environment.

I wholeheartedly advocate Steber International to you for any marine related service and supply requirements.

Director MRNSW
