Marine – Boat Building and Refurbishment

As a country surrounded by water it is not surprising that Kiwis reportedly have more boats per capita than any other country in the world.  Whether it’s yachting, powerboating, fishing, diving or water skiing - New Zealanders are out on the water enjoying the wonders of our country. 

Reid and Twiname offer marine grade textiles suitable for the boat building and refurbishment market, as well as a wide range of ancillary products and consumables.
