About us

Sugar City Marine was founded by Ray Leigh and Warren Gray, both very accomplished entrepreneurs and marine mechanics that started out as apprentices and were promoted to manager and workshop foreman at Fields Marine Pty Ltd, which Leigh and Gray bought out to start their own business. Its operations began in 1986, one year before the company moved to its current location on 11 Victoria Street, Mackay – a prime spot boasting a spacious block on the main street, front and side access, a secure parking area for boats and a very convenient distance from a boat ramp. After its founders’ retirement in 2008 – more than two successful decades following its launch – Sugar City Marine welcomed its new owners and directors Steve Leigh and Wayne Riddle: Leigh, who completed a motorcycle mechanic apprenticeship as well as an outboard mechanic apprenticeship, has been involved in the business since 2005, taking charge of key departments, such as sales, parts, finance, insurance and customer service. Riddle, who has been earning various certificates and awards – including Queensland Technician of the Year – since starting his marine mechanic apprenticeship in 1986, is a true expert in his field, having an array of knowledge ranging from standard inboards and outboards to jet skis. Today Sugar City Marine is Mackay’s largest marine dealer and one of Queensland’s leading marine dealerships. Its reputation for offering quality products, competitive prices and superior technical and customer service from an extensively trained personnel with 100 years of combined experience has resulted in numerous honors.
