most awarded

Top New Zealand GRP trailer boat manufacturer Rayglass Boats has continued its amazing winning streak at the Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show’s Boat of the Show Awards.

Both Rayglass entries won the categories into which they were entered, the Legend 2500 winning All Purpose Family Boat Up To 8 Metres and the Legend 2800 winning All Purpose Family Boat Open. Manufacturers are only allowed to enter a maximum of two models into the prestigious annual awards and 2018 marked the eighth straight year that both Rayglass entries have won their categories.

“It is a remarkable achievement and a testament to the quality of our staff and their on-going dedication to producing the best possible GRP boats for our clients,” says Rayglass CEO Dave Larsen.

Rayglass is the most awarded boat manufacturer in New Zealand history, having won 35 Boat of the Show Awards since 2000 and having won two category awards in 11 of the last 12 years (in 2010 they won one Boat of the Show Award and one Innovation Award for their Pro-Jet combination RIB and PWC).

The company has also won the coveted Boat of the Show Supreme Award, the country’s most highly valued boatbuilding award, an impressive six times while the Raylass Legend 2500 (8 awards) and the Rayglass Legend 2800 (6) are two of the most awarded boats ever produced.

Rayglass founder Tony Hembrow was also honoured at this year’s awards, inducted into the prestigious New Zealand Boat Show Hall of Fame for his 35 years of service to the New Zealand marine industry and the show.

Based on the water’s edge in Auckland, Rayglass is one of New Zealand’s most successful marine businesses, both at home and internationally. Employing over 60 people in three state of the art manufacturing facilities, the highly regarded company manufactures the multi-award-winning Legend series of GRP powerboats; the highly successful 3500 sportscruiser, the internationally renowned Protector range of patrol, work and pleasure RIBs and the innovative Pro-Jet, a combination RIB and PWC.
