Ride was the single focus of Jonathon Barlow when he set out to design the Offshore NZ range. In the boating world we all know plate boats are known for a rough, bouncy ride usually not living up to their Fiberglass counterparts. This was the challenge embraced when the Offshore NZ team embarked on the design process of a high performance, balance plate boat.

Designed, developed and manufactured in New Zealand by Northland Marine Co the Offshore range of plate boats are built with no compromises or limitations. The unique 8mm plate hull alloy hull and overall hull design delivers a plate boat ride like no other – you could be forgiven for thinking you were on a glass boat the ride is so smooth.

Why choose an Offshore NZ Boat?


Our boats are built to last with a strong sturdy 8mm hull that can withstand harsh offshore conditions. Competitors use a 4-6mm thickness that lacks the same level of durability and strength.


An 18-degree deadrise hull provides exceptional stability and a smoother ride in rough seas, making it an excellent choice for boaters who value comfort and safety on the water.


Our boats feature thoughtful and practical designs, maximising deck space, storage options, and comfort, providing a seamless and enjoyable boating experience.


With a wide range of standard and optional features available, Offshore Boats NZ allows you to customise your boat to suit your specific needs and preferences, ensuring you have all the necessary tools and amenities for your adventures.
