Franklin Marine is passionate about safety. Our staff spend a lot of time researching, advising and selling the right equipment to keep you safe on the water. We keep our margins slim to keep you safe. For example, an Australian Made KTI EPIRB with GPS is only $290.

Whether you are in Tasmania or interstate, we urge you to carefully watch the video and make use of the leading Australian safety publication developed by Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST).


MAST’s BoatWISE Buddy is a must-have for your boat…

Do you remember all of the rules that you’re supposed to adhere to when out on the water? 

How about all of the safety gear you need for smooth, sheltered and coastal waters?

Do you know what an Isolated Danger Mark looks like?

Would you recognise the sound signal for “overtaking port side”?
