The Maritime Precinct is an integral part of Western Australia’s shipbuilding, repair and maintenance industry as well as support to offshore construction.

The Australian Marine Complex leads the world in the construction of high speed, lightweight vessels. The shipbuilding industry also excels in building luxury superyachts, tugs, rescue, patrol, fishing, paramilitary and offshore supply vessels for local and export markets.

The Maritime Precinct is approximately 35 hectares in area extending from the Common User Facility in the South to the Recreation Boating Facility in the North. It is now home to five primary shipbuilders and many other smaller companies producing vessels in the 15 to 130 metre range.

Establishment of the Maritime Precinct and support facilities is testament to the global recognition of Western Australia's shipbuilding prowess, and outstanding ability in maritime support.
