Twin Disc Pacific has served Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific region for 50 years, with solutions for vessels from yachts to fast ferries. The business recently upgraded its Brisbane and Gold Coast locations and launched a talent development/succession plan. Both have paid off in phenomenal business growth.

The new Gold Coast customer experience center gives owners and designers an up-close look at products like the Express Joystick System® (EJS). Two demo boats provide extra inspiration. That all supported an increase this year in pleasure craft projects, a growth market during the pandemic.

Growth also came from a significant territory expansion in Asia as distributor for Seakeeper gyroscopic stabilizers. Both Seakeeper and Twin Disc focus on making boat operation easier and more comfortable; there’s great synergy between the companies’ products.

The ability to deliver packaged solutions—for example, the Quickshift® transmission plus electronic propulsion control systems—also sets Twin Disc Pacific apart. The EJS has been particularly successful, now used by a number of builders as standard in every model range.

The company offers a unique balance of long-term employees and newer talent, driven by a passion for continuous improvement. Come meet the team and let us connect the dots for you, creating a complete solution that drives mutual success.


Veth Propulsion by Twin Disc gives us an edge in electrification, thanks to two key factors:

  • Industry-leading technology known for innovation and reliability
  • A passion for working directly with the customer—sitting at the table with boat builders and end users, exchanging ideas and feedback

For example, when superyacht designers sought very compact propulsion with less noise and vibration, Veth worked with shipbuilding researchers to change its thrusters accordingly. That change convinced major yacht builders to use the Integrated L-Drive.

Our focus on the customer has helped increase market share in applications such as inland shipping, where deliveries and service continue strong during the pandemic. And interest continues to grow in our Integrated L-Drive, as we help the market switch to electric propulsion.

Of course, you want to collaborate with the right people. Our team acts as if Veth is their own company—a company dedicated to working together for the customer.

Suppliers tell us you can feel that difference. Customers send us texts like the one recently received by Technical Director Marco Huisman: “What you did was awesome.”

Come sit at the table with Veth Propulsion, and let’s inspire each other.
