Shipping

Shipping – Yes, we’ll send our boats anywhere!

We are a direct sales business, selling to our final customers without a distribution and/or retailers chain. We can deliver your tender from our factory direct to your boat. You can choose what, where and when you want your tender, we will do our best to accommodate your request. We will make international shipping fairly simple and straight forward process by looking after all your needs from this end along with our freight forwarding service partners.
Give our team as much notice as possible ahead of your timeline (6 months minimum) so we can aim for the best possible outcome time-wise.

Things to consider:

  • Timeframe: minimum 60 days transit time from the NZ Factory to your door is a secure average to start from.  For Australian and Sth Pacific clients, usually 15-20 days from departure from NZ to depot. Please note this is indicative only. It is sea freight, many variables are at play. Currently all freight to Europe is being impacted by “war surcharges” as ships sail via Sth Africa instead of the Suez Canal adding time (2 weeks) and extra costs to the freight cost. Always allow for delays.
  • Collection from a local depot: the cheapest way to have the crates shipped is to collect them from a local depot using a trailer or a large ute. No un-crating services provided.
  • Delivery to door: the crate needs to be taken off a truck when it arrives at destination, therefore places with forklifts or other means of taking the crate off the truck are ideal (Boatyards and Marinas usually have them available)
  • Airfreight: New Zealand have increased considerably its airfreight capacity since COVID related lockdowns and flight reductions. Therefore if in a hurry, this very much a financially viable option to some of the bigger centers. Please note some airlines have size restrictions so not all models can be transported.
