About Us

Manufacturers of the highest quality Marine Hardware
Driveline Systems.



Chatfield Engineering Limited was incorporated in 1948 by the late Mr. Roly Chatfield, in Devonport, Auckland. 

The company started producing stern glands and bearings for the local boat building industry. Government controlled import restrictions limited the trade of marine hardware from overseas.

The company grew and relocated to Glenfield in 1962, it is now in Sunnybrae Road.

Simon Willis now manages the company. We continue to promote the long-standing philosophy of producing high quality bronze and stainless steel marine hardware at a reasonable price.

Innovative design and manufacturing techniques help to keep Chatfield Marine at the forefront of the international marine industry.


Chatfield Marine employs a small team of  highly skilled people. The staff work as a team to ensure the customers delivery dates and expectations are met.

The Machine Shop utilises a CNC Harrison Alpha 1550XT Tech Lathe.  Other equipment includes a WINDHO 12" chucked centre lathe along with several general purpose centre lathes. Single and multi-spindle drill presses for drilling operations, along with 2 production milling machines, presses, and a TOS horizontal borer with a 900 x 900 table.
