Byron Hazell has been involved in the marine industry since he began a marine mechanic apprenticeship in 1967.
In the years since, Byron has worked extensively with all the leading outboard and boating brands. Among other roles, he was the proprietor of Sunraysia Marine (Mildura, VIC) for over 12 years, where he was heavily involved in the highly-competitive ski-racing circuit and a range of other boating-related activities.
Upon selling Sunraysia Marine and shifting to Darwin, Byron worked with Darwin's largest marine dealership for several years, before deciding to establish his current business, BH Marine.
As Darwin's leading dealer for Honda Marine, Haines Hunter, Sea Jay and a number of other respected marine brands, BH Marine is the major supplier and servicing agent for the majority of the Top End's tourism operators.
Byron's passion for boating and knowledge of the industry is evident in the success of his business and the respect he has from other industry players. The recipient of numerous awards for dealer excellence, Byron is also the current Northern Territory President of the Boating Industry Association (BIA).
