Noakes Group was founded by managing director Sean Langman in 2006. Noakes originally began in 1979 as a rigging company and over three decades has expanded into a multi-faceted operation that stretches across two Australian states. From Nelson Bay to Port Huon, Noakes operates six boat yards offering a full repair and maintenance service, including specialist marine repairs, as well as storage and berthing.
Noakes Group also operates Rosman Ferries, an historic ferry charter business with five beautifully restored red and yellow Federation style ferries which can be booked for charters, including weddings and wedding transport on Sydney Harbour.
The historic Kermandie hotel and floating marina located on Tasmania's picturesque Huon River was a recent acquisition for Noakes Group managing director Sean Langman and partner Christopher Stannard and this year Sean Langman partnered with restaurateur Con Dedes to open Deckhouse, a first class function centre and café at Woolwich Dock with uninterrupted views to the city skyline.
