Industry stalwart loses battle with cancer - Vale Phil Frazer


'Phil Frazer Employee Of The Decade'    Maritimo    Click Here to view large photo

Queensland boating industry figure Phil Frazer, who was production manager at Maritimo luxury cruisers, died this week after a battle with cancer.

Phil was recently named Maritimo’s employee of the decade and was acknowledged at a special company event hosted by founder Bill Barry-Cotter at Sanctuary Cove early in September.

He had worked with Barry-Cotter since the start of Maritimo a decade ago and beforehand had worked along side him at Riviera.

Phil is survived by his partner Deb, four children and four grandchildren.

Maritimo sales and marketing manager Greg Haines said the ‘hands-on boating fanatic’ would be sadly missed at Maritimo and by all those who knew or worked with him.

'Phil and Bill had a unique relationship and he had a special ability to get down on paper and formalize a lot of the conceptualization that Bill would talk about,' he said.

'Phil came to Maritimo at the start and worked on the design and production of the M60 cruising motoryacht which was born from some sketches on a paper napkin at a lunch. 'That napkin was later framed and given to Bill as a memento.'

Mr Haines said Phil was an extremely efficient production manager and was renowned for his rapid prototype development and the speed at which he could progress things through the factory.

'He tackled his battle with cancer the same way he tackled life and that was full on,' he said.

'Phil was at the factory almost every day until the end and even when he was having treatment he would turn up immediately before or after and check on what was happening.

'He was an invaluable member of the Maritimo team and he will be sadly missed by all those who knew him. ' We are all thinking of Deb and his family at this time.'
