The Kiwi-Kraft story grew from one man’s love of diving, fishing and hunting – his name is Rodney Harris. In 1988 Rodney saw a need for a safer, better performing aluminium boat. One that also appealed to the eye Kiwi-Kraft was born.
New Zealanders, or Kiwis as we often call ourselves, have a proud history of innovation and design on the water. From Ron Hamilton’s river-taming jet boat in 1954, to Bruce Farr’s KZ7 plastic fantastic America’s Cup yacht in 1987 and on to Alan Gibbs’ Aquada amphibious vehicle of 2003.
It is little wonder then that if we mix that innovation with some of the world’s most spectacular lakes and rugged coastlines that a Kiwi would design a better aluminium pontoon boat. That boat is Kiwi-Kraft.
Kiwi-Kraft boats allow families to enjoy the challenge of diving and fishing in the Southern Ocean, hunting on the shores of the freshwater lakes of Fiordland National Park or water sport activities on salt or fresh water.
