About Us

Meet the Herley boats Team

At Herley Boats, we are passionate about quality finishes, innovation, and adventures on the water. Our team of dedicated professionals shares a love for boating and a commitment to creating the perfect vessel for every customer.
Our story began with years of frustration buying, building, and using boats that lacked the final details, were made from cheap quality materials, had unnecessary pools of water, and awkward helm positions. We knew there had to be a better way to build boats, and that’s why we decided to take matters into our own hands and start Herley Boats.
Leading our team is Nick, a seasoned boat builder, marine designer, and production/project manager with years of experience in major trailer boat and ship yards throughout New Zealand. Nick’s expertise and ground-up level of experience are what led to the design and production of our vessels.
At Herley Boats, we believe in crafting boats with meticulous attention to detail, using only the highest quality materials, and delivering a finish that exceeds expectations. Our passion for boating drives us to create innovative designs that offer unparalleled comfort, safety, and performance.
From start to finish, our team is dedicated to delivering the ultimate customer experience. We take the time to understand our customers’ needs, preferences, and boating style to ensure that each vessel we build is tailored to their unique requirements.
At Herley Boats, we are more than just a team of boat builders – we are a group of passionate boaters who share a love for the water and the freedom and adventure that it offers. Let us help you experience the joy of boating with a vessel that is built with passion, innovation, and quality finishes.
