About Kingfisher

Where it all began

About Kingfisher

Kingfisher Boats and Powercats have been based in Mt Maunganui, New Zealand for over 20 years.

In this time we have built up a diverse range of products including both commercial and recreational vessels ranging from 3m to 18m in length. With our in-house design capabilities, we are able to design and build the boat that you require.

Our Boatbuilding Experience

We are Powercat specialists, having perfected the single engine range and our twin engine designs.  Our expertise in boatbuilding however extends to all areas of the market –  from small dinghies and punts right through to large monohull launches. In between we have designed and built houseboats for leisure and charter, workboats for charter and crayfishing, and an extensive range of trailerboats – both the Kingfisher brand and other well known brands. 

We have built boats to comply with survey standards by Lloyds, Australian Maritime Safety Authority and Maritime New Zealand.
