Dealer Principal - Michael Waugh

Michael has an array of design and mechanical expertise in the marine industry. He became the Dealer Principal for Nitro Marine in 2002 where he has grown the dealership and achieved international accolades from Mercury Marine (Brunswick Corporation) and also various awards within Australia. His experience of over 40 years included many hours on small inflatables to sailing yachts to large flybridge planing vessels before looking for a capable semi-displacement offshore cruiser in 2006 that was also as comfortable and family friendly inshore around the local broadwater on the Gold Coast. This search led him to Transpacific Marine and the Eagle range which he has developed closely with the builder and yard since. His professional qualifications include Mercury University training on various marine products and engineering, he is also qualified by Queensland BSA as a Low Rise Builder (licence 23907).
