About Us

Smartwave Boats were developed in Rangiora New Zealand by David Hickmott from Advantage Plastics.

David started the passion to design in conjunction with Scott Robson one of New Zealand’s best Boat Designers a range of Smartwave Boats.

The range went from the small tender boat at 2.4metre through to the large 4.8metre Boat.

Smartwave Boats have become a very recognized and respected Brand in New Zealand, Australia, Pacific, the UK and many other countries around the world. Smartwave has had great success with sales and are continuing to grow rapidly both nationally and internationally today.

In August 2017 discussions between David Hickmott and Garth Galloway from Galloway International Ltd began and an agreement was reached to purchase the Brand Smartwave Boats in October 2017.

Galloway International Ltd has over 20 years’ experience in the manufacture of rotational moulded polyethylene boats under the very well-known Brand “Mac Boats”.

With Galloway Internationals technology and vast experience in the design and manufacture of rotational moulded boats, it will enable Smartwave Boats to expand and develop over the coming years. In combining Smartwave and Mac Boats, this will make Galloway International one of the largest trailer boat manufacturers in New Zealand.

We look forward to continuing to build on the success that the Smartwave Boats have achieved and hope that we can fulfill David’s Dreams of Smartwave Boats being a very successful Boating Company.
