Fyran Marine Limited

Fyran Marine Limited is based in Auckland New Zealand, and manufactures aluminium boats ranging in size from 2.4 metre dinghies to 7.6 metre cabin boats. These are widely used for tenders, commercial operations, family cruising, water skiing, serious sport fishing and recreational fishing. The range of boats is the most extensive of any manufacturer in New Zealand.
Fyran Marine operates from a purpose built plant in East Tamaki, 30 minutes from downtown Auckland CDB and shipping port, and 20 minutes from Auckland International airport. The sales office and management team also operate from that site.
A new CNC computer router was installed in 2007 to efficiently cut the aluminium prior to construction. All welding of the hulls, (both TIG and MIG) and pressing of components is done on site and also the final finishing of the boats including sourcing and installing a variety of components such as seats, steering, windscreens. The aluminium is sourced from several different NZ agents who import it from a number of overseas mills. Different grades of aluminium are used for different parts of the boat construction. Thinner aluminium arrives in coil and is cut to length, and thicker aluminium is imported already cut to specific lengths to minimise wastage. Aluminium extrusions, which are a key part of the Fyran efficient and fast production method, are extruded locally using exclusive Fyran designed dies.
Painting of the hulls is outsourced and so is trailer manufacture.
When the boat finally leaves the factory it just needs the engine installed at the dealer’s yard and it is ready for the water.
The range is distributed through a national network of marine dealers, and also exported directly from the East Tamaki site, to a number of Pacific Island countries as well as Thailand, Korea, and the Middle East.

The Product

Fyran has been manufacturing aluminium boats for over 40 years. Fyran has become the benchmark for design and construction of trailer boats in NZ and the brand is one of the most recognized and respected brands in the industry.
The boats are also ideal for Dry stack storage and use, as well as traditional NZ trailer operation and towing behind the family car, for beach and boat ramp launching. The tradition of quality, innovation, and manufacturing excellence has ensured that the Fyran boats continue to provide pleasure craft that feature superior strength, performance, and functionality in the most stylish production aluminium boats on the market.
All boats 5 metres and over are CPC rated which is the NZ marine safety standard established by the Marine Industry Association and the NZ Coastguard. This rating ensures the boats are unsinkable and is the boaties guarantee of safe boating. This is achieved with a combination of foam flotation and sealed air chambers.
They can also be CE rated for French territories and also pass the stringent NZ Marine survey certification for commercial operators.
The boats all have an extensive range of standard features but can also be readily customized to suit the exact customer requirements with a wide variety of factory optional extras.
In fact it is rare that 2 identical boats leave the factory. Most have personalized colours, upholstery, seat styles, rod holders, walk through transoms etc.
In 2007, 2008, 2009 and again in 2010, Fyran extensively upgraded the range of models. We have introduced fibreglass cabin models, which allow smooth curves and attractive features not achievable in aluminium. These fibreglass tops are then attached to the rugged aluminium hulls to create the best of both types of boats. I.e. a strong lightweight aluminium hull, and a smooth attractive curvy cabin and dashboard area. This concept is unique to Fyran and now we have 6 new designs using this process.
We have also produced new designs in smaller sizes to accommodate inshore fishing and small engine requirements.
New transom designs with longer waterline length and more aft buoyancy were introduced on larger models in 2008. In early 2009 the 500 and 595 series were introduced and late in 2009 the 645 series, and then in 2010 the 475 and 575 Rebels. These were designed specifically for the serious recreational fisherman.
Fyran build between 300 and 500 boats per year depending on local market and export demand.

The Mission

Fyran Boats will continue to build the best aluminium boats in NZ at affordable prices. We will maintain our reputation for strength, reliability and safety, and most importantly enhance the brand image by providing exceptional boating experiences to a wide variety of New Zealanders.
