about us

Meet the man behind Firefish Fabrication – Steve Burton.

Good things take time. And for Steve, after 22 years fabricating in Auckland for a number of top-notch companies and brands (plus a mortgage, marriage and two kids), it was decided that 2019 was to be the birth of a baby of a different kind. Enter Firefish Fabrication.

Steve’s been fabricating since the moment he left high-school but his passion for making ‘things out of stuff’ started long before that thanks to a very handy father, Charlie, who was a chippy by trade and passed on some creative genes and skills to his very eager son.

Steve’s background in marine stainless fabrication is extensive. From small pleasure craft by giants Rayglass and Seacraft, right through to the highest end super-yacht builds and refits, Steve has made something for all manner of boat. While marine has and will always be a passion, in 2016 he was given the opportunity to sink his teeth into large commercial projects and residential projects – particularly balustrades and bespoke home features. Even clocktowers.

If strong work-ethic, quality workmanship and reliability is important to you, then talking to us is a must.


Steve’s just finishing his fourth job for me in as many months. His analysis and design ideas have added substantial value to each project. He is a master with stainless steel work – each piece is robust and beautiful.


Steve designed and built a stainless bracket for my 16″ sounder. I couldn’t be happier with the result. The job was done on time to an exceptional standard for a really fair price. Had plenty of comments regarding custom is so much better than stock.


I have been in the boating industry for many years and also the building industry. Steve has completed lots of work for me both on my customers boats and houses, plus my own boats! Every job has been on time and the quality second to none.
