Queen’s Birthday Award Totally Unexpected.

Australian boat industry icon Bill Barry-Cotter says he was surprised to receive a Member of the Order of Australia award in the Queen’s Birthday honours list announced at the weekend.

The award was for significant service to the maritime construction industry, to powerboat racing and as a benefactor and supporter of charitable organizations.

It came as a surprise to me and I feel very humbled by it,” he said. “I love doing what I do and over a period of 50 years you just get on with it and keep doing what you like.

“Boat manufacturing has been my whole life and the role I have played in the industry has been done out of passion and commitment to it.

“I never expected to be given any sort of accolade, but an award such as this does make you reflect and take stock.

“I am fortunate that I have a talented and devoted team working along with me and we are producing a product that is world class. “It’s is nice to be recognised for that.”
