Commercial Vessels:

Our aluminium vessels are CNC cut and are computer-designed to exceed the minimum survey standards.  They can also be supplied as flat pack kitsets.  Using state-of the-art computer software, we can provide accurate parts and construction drawings, quickly and cost effectively.  

Some examples from our range of commercial vessels...
  Two of these 9.2m 30ft REA (Rapid response and Environmental Accessment)  vessels were recently designed and built in New Zealand for the NZ Defence Force.  This specialist military vessel has a removeable top and fits into a C130 Hercules on a road legal trailer for rapid deployment.  Powered by twin Yanmar 370hp engines through Hamilton 274 jets units, capable of 40 knots and carries a crew of 6.

The NZ Defence Force chose our tender over other oversea's competitors because of our ability to think outside the normal boundaries and design/build a vessel that exceeded their expectations.

Built by NSR Boats, Opua. New Zealand.
