About Us
     Commercial Vessels

Our hulls have all been extensively tested and are considered to be the best in the business.  Over the last 15 years, both tank-testing and on-the-water experience has contributed to their development.  Many of these hull-forms are used by New Zealand’s leading production aluminium boatbuilders.

We specialise in custom design

Some examples from our range of pleasurecraft...
  We have designed a new range of vessels specifically for choppy harbour waters.  These new hulls can have a self draining water ballast system and are particularly stable when fishing in open water.  The first of these trailer powerboats is 5.55m long x 2.250m beam and feature a large internal volume with a fine entry and soft, dry ride.
