All about

the Buoys!

Our Story

What’s better than enjoying drinks and beautiful food with friends, family or workmates? Doing it with a twist of adventure!

Right in the heart of Adelaide, we’ve rewritten the rules for fun. Our recreational boats give locals and tourists alike the chance to take in the city while floating down the River Torrens, glass of vino in hand.

Originally from Germany (Martin) and Mexico (Andrea) we’ve adopted this unique city as our own and are proud to now call it home. We love that our little family run business showcases SA from one central location and proudly stock South Australian beers, wines and local produce on board.

On most days, you can catch us around Pinky Flat but we always welcome your call on + 61 (0) 422 145 496 or email to chat all things BBQ Buoys, including events, partnerships and more.  

our team

  • Liam

    Liam started at BBQ Buoys in 2019 and loves the fun and laid back working environment of BBQ Buoys. Never one to shy away from getting his hands dirty, Liam’s enthusiasm for the job and sense of humour is appreciated by his coworkers. Also appreciated is his height, he’s by far the tallest team member and incredibly useful when it comes to setting up the Buoys. Liam is a family man and enjoys spending time with his wife and two young kids.

  • Dan

    Word Nerd

    After joining in 2019, Dan’s quick wit and penchant for copywriting is being put to good use as a part of the BBQ Buoys marketing team. He is currently studying a Bachelor in Journalism and enjoys putting some of the learning into practice, whether that be through writing content, editing photos or creating videos. A keen drummer, he’s in more bands than he can keep track of and can often be found at the pub with his mates or driving around in Brian the old white Mercedes.

  • Nikki

    Nikki joined the team in 2019 and is back again for another season while currently studying her Masters in Business (Finance). Her bright, bubbly personality and enthusiasm are her greatest assets, and whether it be on the dingy taking photos or creating content in the marketing team, you know Nikki is going to give 100%. A true country girl at heart, Nikki loves getting back down to Mt Gambier to see her friends and family, playing netball and her cat Archie.

  • Cody

    Team Leader

    Cody has been a part of the team since 2017 and is basically a walking encyclopedia on all things BBQ Buoys. His calm demeanor and methodical work approach ensure everything runs smoothly throughout the season. When he isn’t at BBQ Buoys, Cody enjoys playing video games, hanging out with family and friends and playing guitar (he also has the voice of an angel).

  • Martin

    Founder, Managing Director

    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. His effervescent energy and strong work ethic is evident throughout BBQ Buoys. In his time off, you’ll find him on his bike, having a hit of tennis, trawling the aisles of Bunnings or trying out his arsenal of Dad jokes on unsuspecting victims!

  • Andrea

    Founder, Director Strategy & Finance

    Andrea knows how to bring business, finance and fun together. She studied international trade in Mexico and holds an MBA in International Finance from Barcelona, Spain. However, Adelaide is where she found her home and her passion and enthusiasm for all things South Australia is truly infectious. Her keen eye for detail and cheeky sense of humour, fun and adventure are typified in every aspect of the BBQ Buoys brand. Outside of work, Andrea loves to travel, entertain and go to the beach with her son Emilio and border collie Pancho.
