Garhauer Marine Hardware New Zealand imports these top quality marine sailboat fittings and dinghy davits from the US manufacturer and sells direct to boat owners, rigging companies and yacht designers, online and at Boat Shows each year. This keeps the price very affordable. A comprehensive range is held in NZ.
Kevin Akast and Kathy Hutton are the Directors of Garhauer (pronounced gar-hower) Marine NZ and are based at the Opua Marina in Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
They have recently returned from the Marshall Islands in their Roberts 44 yacht De La Mer and between them have many years of boating experience. If you want a Rigid Boom Vang or Mainsheet Traveller, Kevin will work very closely with you to have one custom made for your boat. He has sailed and owned boats for many years, so understands that you need the right equipment for the job and is happy to share his knowledge with boat owners.
