Between 60%-70% of our transactions involve either vessels being imported into New Zealand or sold out of it. We service the Western Seaboard of the USA and Alaska / Hawaii . Over the years we have built up a strong ship broking and valuation connection with loyal clientele in the two French Pacific territories of Tahiti and New Caledonia . There is a strong trade in vessels between Australia and New Zealand . Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji and Tonga are serviced by our office with regular visits.
Our experience in international transactions involving Fishing, Work and Charter vessels has given us a wide ranging network, of sellers, buyers and brokers. The industry experience we have gained, the loyalty of our commercial clients and New Zealand ‘s unique position in the Western Pacific give us a cutting advantage in servicing internationally based clients.
Our brokers travel several times a year into the Pacific to inspect commercial vessels and to assist buyers and sellers. New Zealand Marine Brokers originally built its reputation and sales base on commercial fishing boats, however, over the last few years the international marine marketplace has demanded that we assist not only with fishing vessels but also with tugs, barges, supply ships, oil field vessels, floating cranes and fast charter boats, virtually all used – second hand vessels.
Over the past ten years we have developed a close relationship with work sector marine operators in New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific and the western seaboard of the United States – this gives us a distinct advantage over our competition – our knowledge is not only comprehensive but is internationally as opposed to regionally founded. When our new and established clients come to us, they come safely assured of the fact that they are dealing with the New Zealand ‘s leader in the commercial field.
The greatest boon to our business over recent years has been the internet and instant electronic communications. NZMB online is our window to the international marketplace – through this medium we bring our commercial vessel listings to a world-wide audience. Should you be a seller of, say a fishing vessel, then by listing with New Zealand Marine Brokers your vessel will achieve wide exposure throughout Australasia and the Pacific.
