NZ Marine Exporters Directory
Originally incorporated in 1965 as the Boating Industries Association of New Zealand, NZ Marine was formed by industry leaders who identified significant growth potential in New Zealand's highly capable and robust local boating businesses. Over the last three decades, the industry's individual companies have joined forces in a cooperative cluster to advance their interests locally and in international markets.
New Zealand has become a leader in the international marketplace with a reputation for excellence and competitive manufacturing. Export earnings have risen from $25 million in 1988 to $652 million in 2015, with the super yacht, refit, equipment and commercial vessel sectors being responsible for the majority of exports. NZ Marine is the organization that is responsible for multiple roles within the industry and one that has changed significantly over the years to reflect the needs of its member companies in the modern marketplace. NZ Marine plays a key role in bringing scale and direction to the industry's strategy of becoming one of the powerhouses of NZ's export economy.
The three main sectors of NZ Marine - NZ Marine Export Group, NZ Marine Industry Association and NZ Marine and Composites Industry Training Organization - complement each other to work to increase the capability and local and export sales for the New Zealand marine industry.
