Smuggler And Orion Thank Boaties Across the Country

Smuggler Marine and Orion have thanked boaties across the country for their support following the Court of Appeal decision today which will free up production of amphibious boats in New Zealand.

Directors of Smuggler Marine, David and Pauline Pringle along with Orion Manager Darren Leybourne also acknowledge the support of the many NZ Marine Industry member companies who have stuck by them in what has been a long and tough battle to provide the New Zealand boating community with the choices they are entitled to.

“The court’s decision has supported our view that Orion’s amphibious technology is different to anything else currently available, and this is what the case was all about.

With this now settled, we will be contacting the long list of people both in NZ and overseas who have been waiting for up to three years to put in their order for an amphibious Smuggler boat with an Orion system, and we will return to building amphibious boats immediately.”
