Fishing Off A Boat – A Nationwide Childhood Dream

In New Zealand, we love to fish. Being locked on all sides by the ocean it makes sense, doesn’t it? Most kids, however, are stuck slinging lines off the ends of local wharfs and jetties. Of course, this is all fine and dandy, but the real thrill of fishing comes from the open water.

The best way to do this, obviously, is on a boat. But to get to where the real big fish are your uncles dinghy simply isn’t going to cut it. A Rayglass boat, however, will. While their Legend and Protector ranges have found huge success across the globe with law enforcement and other companies, they are also brilliant as a weekend getaway vehicle. No, not for your bank heists.

Rayglass boats are renowned for being unsinkable – in fact Dave Larson, chief executive of Rayglass claims that in the three decades of business none have ever sunk. While this is a bold call, you have every reason to believe him as the organisers of the Louis Vuitton Cup and America’s Cup have chosen Legend and Protector boats for on-water duties multiple times.

Rayglass boats are born and bred in Auckland and sent all over the world. Add in the good ol’ Kiwi mentality of: “Do what needs to be done and do it right,” as well as the modesty only we can really pull off. Even if the new craze in boats is a green racing stripe. Because even though we don’t really brag, we still like to go fast.


Fishing is in our genes. New Zealanders feel at home on the waves, and from smoked kahawai to battered snapper, you know you’re in for a good meal when you get back home. And the only way to get you from land to sea and back is onboard a Rayglass boat.
