Hauraki Fenders was established in 2014 by Damon and Jacqui. We are two ocean loving kiwis who stumbled upon a bit of a problem when cruising the Hauraki Gulf on our boat with our new baby.....a distinct lack of storage space, especially for fenders. As there were no readily available products in New Zealand at the time, Damon, with his mechanical engineering background, set to and designed an inflatable fender that would be the right size for the boat and could be easily stored. Nine months later the design came to life and Hauraki Fenders was created.
Since 2014 Hauraki Fenders has taken off, what started as a hobby business quickly became serious business as the popularity of our products skyrocketed. Fast-forward to now and we stock a large range of inflatable fenders, rectangle fenders, dock and marina fenders, marina pole fenders, solid foam fenders, fender covers, mooring and dock lines, rafting lines and all things custom. We also carry out full marina berth installations and set ups throughout the Auckland region.
While being world famous in New Zealand, you will also see our fenders on charter boats in Australia, cruising yachts around the world, in the great lakes of the USA, on TP52 race yachts, in America's Cup syndicates, on Round the World racing yachts, on Antarctic cruise vessels, and everything in between. We love what we do, believe in our products, and get a great kick out of hearing and seeing where our fenders end up and the adventures they go on.
We hope to hear from you soon, best regards Damon & Jacs
