RAD MARINE Ltd is proud to be the exclusive New Zealand distributor for all Sealver Wave Boats. This family owned and operated business is a natural progression for us on our marine journey. Here at Mangawhai we are fortunate to have the best of both worlds with a harbour for safe swimming, skiing and kayaking and a renowned surf beach. After a short bar crossing we are out into open water and some of the best fishing and diving spots New Zealand has to offer with the Hen and Chicken Islands only 12 miles away and the Mokohinau islands only 33 miles away.
