About Our Team at Breakaway
MARK GARLICK – Owner and Operator
Mark has been in the boating industry for the past 31 years. He started as an apprentice at Hunts Marine in Carlton, NSW in 1982 where he completed his studies 4 years later. Mark then moved to Noosa 8 years later and was workshop manager at Suncoast Marine in Noosaville. In late 1992 he ‘broke away’ to start his own marine business Breakaway Marine that has been servicing the locals of Noosa for the past 22 years.
Mark has knowledge in all inboard and outboard motors as well as vast experience in steel construction. After having an extensive history in the mechanical side of things, he has in the later years turned his focus onto on the management of the business and the sales of all products Breakaway Marine has to offer.
When away from the business Mark enjoys offshore and inshore fishing and is a highly involved competitor in the V8 Superboats.
JAKE GARLICK – Workshop Manager and Mechanic
Following in his father’s foot steps, Jake has grown up around the business and the mechanical servicing of inboard and outboard motors. At the age of 12 he started weekend work at Breakaway Marine and picked up the knack of the trade naturally.
Jake then went on to commence an apprenticeship which he completed in February 2012. Jake has been apart of the Breakaway Marine crew for the past 5 ½ years and in that time he has taken immense pride in all of his work and the running of the workshop.
Outside of work and his skills on boats mechanically, Jake also exercises his skill and precision in driving as a very successful driver in the V8 Superboats, and battling the offshore swell in deep sea fishing.
