BBQ Buoys is what happens when two adventurous people live and work across three continents and eventually choose Adelaide, South Australia, as the place they want to live. We know what it’s like to chase the Sun and have some fun.

When we saw the original BBQ-Donut boat in Germany, we knew Australia would love it. What’s not to love? Floating about on a river relaxing and eating with your friends and family.

BBQ Buoys was created so that we can do something we love, and bring the latest water leisure craze to Adelaide.

Martin was made for leisure, he even studied it at university. Service management and destination marketing were his favourite bits. After working for more than 7 years in the travel technology industry, he knows a few things about tourism. As a Key Account Manager for a global tourism distribution company and for Europe’s leading hotel portal HRS, Martin established relationships with tour operators, online travel agencies and hotel chains.

Martin rarely stands still. When he is not giving your BBQ Buoys briefing at Pinky Flat, you’ll find him on his bike or playing beach volleyball. And even when he is standing still he’ll be thinking about new ways to make your BBQ Buoys experience even better.

Contact Martin for partnership requests and business development.

BBQ-Donut® Boats

BBQ-Donuts look like giant tractor tubes. They are round boats with seating around the edge and a barbecue grill and table top in the centre. The original bbq-donut® was invented by Sebastian Schmitt, a German architect and is manufactured by Artthink GmbH. Europe loves them and we know Australia will love them too.

If you are an Australian leisure and tourism business operator contact us to discuss how you can increase your revenue with a sustainable mid-term investment in the BBQ Donut boats. For more information about the business and boat specifications, see Fun on Water Pty Ltd at
