MACKENZIE MARINE AND TOWAGE PTY LTD (MMT) is a family owned company which was founded by the late Don Mackenzie in 1972 commencing operations as a harbour towage and pilot boat service provider in Esperance, Western Australia. Don utilised his existing fishing boat and commissioned the company’s first dedicated tug, Cape Le Grand to carry out towage operations.

The company grew with Don’s sons, Hugh and Fud Mackenzie at the helm, whose innovation and a desire to provide a more efficient tug service, saw the introduction of newer and larger capacity tugs to the fleet. A third generation has now taken the helm, with Sean Mackenzie directing the company and expanding the fleet to 14 vessels.

With over 85 years of marine towage experience in our management team, we consider ourselves to be specialists in the marine towage industry, with no challenge too complex to overcome.

MMT now operates in four divisions: Esperance, Bunbury, Marine Towage Solutions and Henderson Boat Lifters in Fremantle:
