Smartwave Boats were originally developed in Rangiora by David Hickmott from Advantage Plastics and later acquired by Garth Galloway a few years later as a passion project to further improve, innovate and qualify the boats to CE certification standards, and has since grown to an internationally recognised and respected brand. During this growth and continued success, the desire to fulfil Garth’s dream has always been front of mind, offering the perfect boating solution for end users.
The boats are light weight with positive buoyancy (virtually unsinkable), robust (5 times stronger than fiberglass), extremely safe, smooth riding and will not succumb to rust or corrosion. Our specially formulated polymer won’t wear through like Gelcoat, star graze, or fiberglass boats. It is 100% recyclable as part of our efforts to keep the environment a better place for our clients to enjoy their craft.
Uniquely designed by one of New Zealand’s best boat designers Scott Robson, these crafts offer the best of both comfort and performance on the water. Manufactured by Galloway International Ltd who offer over 25 years of Rotational Moulded Boat building experience (under the well known ‘Mac Boats’ brand), and a long-standing, developed understanding of how to bring the Smartwave vision to life.
Produced for the marine market and exported around the globe, all Smartwave Boats are thoroughly tested to the highest standard, going through rigorous testing to ensure they meet the CE certification standards – as well as standing up to whatever tough conditions the sea, lakes or rivers can throw at them!
