For over 114 years, the Savage name has been held in high esteem amongst boaties. Savage was the first to build welded aluminium boats and the first builders of small fiberglass boats in Australia.
In 1898 John Joseph Savage built the first boat under the name J.J Savage. Little did he know that more than a century later, the Savage name would be part of our language and synonymous with high quality boats.
Throughout their long history, Savage has always been determined to provide high quality long lasting designs.
Throughout the late 80’s and early 90’s Savage was the top selling boat brand within Australia, with boats being passed down through generations.
In 2008 Telwater purchased Savage and with exciting new business plans was set to revive the brand and restore it to its former glory.
The first point of call was to move the manufacturing of Savage from its Melbourne factory to Telwater’s 8.6 hectare state of the art manufacturing facility. At the Telwater factory Savage boats could be produced with greater quality controls in larger quantities with shorter lead times.
Savage is the most well know boat brand in Australia, Savages brand equity with Telwater backing and a large dealer network is a formula for success.
