JOHN BUTLER, PROPRIETOR
I have worked extensively within the marine industry virtually all of my life. My father started Butler Marine in 1970, and I restarted the company name in 1987. I have been involved in the designing and building of boats, both aluminium and fibreglass over many years. My experience with marine propulsion (outboard, stern-drive, and jet power) enables me to comment and advise on all of these systems. I enjoy most forms of fishing which I carry out at Kaikoura, Motunau and the outer reaches of the Marlborough Sounds & Cook Strait. You can contact me at work anytime to discuss your boating needs.
