New Zealand Made Quality Inflatable Boats

Since 1988 Southern Pacific has built inflatable boats for Kiwis to withstand the harsh New Zealand conditions. Southern Pacific is now the country’s leading inflatable boat producer, building anything from small tenders for chandleries through to 14 metre Hypalon tubes for international coastguard and military contracts.

And they are all proudly made here, in New Zealand.


Introducing The Ultimate Chase Boat – The PerformR

The Ultimate Chase Boat with Unparalleled Seakeeping
With 30 years of experience providing chase boats to yacht clubs, Southern Pacific presents a class-leading rigid inflatable with unparalleled sea-faring characteristics. The PerformR is the result of a collaboration with top naval architect designers to produce the ultimate high performance coaching boat or go-anywhere seafarer.
Rob Shaw Yacht Design was commissioned to create 6.0m inflatable with the philosophy of a yacht club support boat, but with improved features to make it effortless to operate any conditions. The high-shear bow design provides a very dry ride and controlled downwind and upwind performance, penetration through all seaways and maximizes waterline length. A high transom and outboard well keeps the boat drier when reversing or stern and the PerformR’s tubes are active in the water aft so the boat retains stability at rest and not just to act as a fender.
Hauraki Consultancy has engineered an extremely stiff and strong GRP hull with maximum . It incorporates seating aft without compromising internal space and features improved storage space forward. Internal side channels improve water flow to the bilge. The hull deck and internal structure is entirely CNC moulded, with all considerations made for a perfect fit of the Mehler TPU tubes.
