Steve has been a passionate boater for well over 20 years, with his fondest memories being built whilst cruising around Sydney Harbour and beyond.

His first initiation into the Industry was as the Australian Importer for Chris Craft and Regal Boats, which he started with his late father, Jack D Hannes; Australia’s photography pioneer and founder of Hanimex.

Steve graduated Sydney University with a Masters in Business and Finance, which teamed with his love of all things boating, makes him well equipped to hold the esteemed title of Dealer Principal.

It was an exciting leap of faith to move into the retail side of boating, which has seen Premier Marine quickly become an industry leader. He is privileged to hold one of the best reputations as a dealer as he is known for his personal approach, genuine nature and focus on customer service.

By being directly involved with all facets of this boutique business, Steve approaches his work with sincere passion and dedication, so much so, that you could only ever expect this from an importer and distributor, as his focus is on maintaining the integrity of his premium brands.

He wishes to revolutionise the Industry from the ground up and is committed to the long term growth of Premier Marine.


Steve introduced me to the boating lifestyle many years ago, which saw my obsession ignite from the moment I jumped aboard the Chris Craft 28 Corsair.

Boating is an exhilarating feeling and one that cannot be adequately put into words, as all your senses engage simultaneously to make it one unbelievable stream of life changing moments.

As the Brand Manager, I enjoy thinking outside the box when it comes to facilitating unique and memorable ways of gaining premium brand exposure.

I have studied acting, business management, journalism and public relations, which has been brilliant as it allows me to utilise each and every one of my passions and applying it to my ultimate life passion…boating.

Boats, people and places.

My  most memorable experiences have been based around boating and I thoroughly enjoy sharing my passion with both those new to boating as well as seasoned boaties.

I would certainly consider myself to be living my dream and I look forward to helping you live yours.
