About Extreme Boats

850 Game King

Extreme Boats is a family-run business, producing New Zealand's premier aluminium boats with a high quality finish to make sure your boat performs well and looks great.

We began manufacturing boats in 1998 in small runs and have gone from strength to strength. We currently have thirty full-time staff including my wife Diane and myself, Glenn Shaw.

From the outset we could see no benefit entering the trailer boat market without introducing a series of recreational boats with a major point of difference. All Extreme hulls are designed in-house.

Designed as a range of serious off-shore boats based on proven hull technology, all our boats feature the 'Deep Vee' hull. The boats boast fine entry for high-speed head sea performance, all while retaining a high chine with full shoulder for excellent sea-handling. Excellent stability at rest or full-throttle comes from a pair of very large aft chine flats. This also makes for an incredibly dry ride.

It is these features that have allowed Extreme Boats to grow from a small company producing a few boats in 1998 to a sizeable company today. We now employ 40+ staff and produce more than 200 new boats annually thanks to a strong following from boaties both in New Zealand and around the world.   

What does this mean to you, an Extreme Boats customer? You have complete peace of mind knowing your boat is going to be around for generations to come.
