AMF Boats

Hi all

My name is Bevan Collings and we produce AMF Boats in New Zealand. We started off building serious fishing and diving Plate aluminum boats in the early 80's and continue to provide top quality boats for this market. In recent years have taken our hull design to ribs for Coastguard units in New Zealand. Our RIBS we call a QRV (Quick Response Vessel) and we have in the last month just completed three new models that we are pretty proud of. Here is a sample of each of the new models. I look forward to sharing with you all our products from New Zealand and learning more about RIBs from you all.

Cheers
Bevan

We were sent a link to this video this morning, it was made by the guys from Hawkes Bay Coastguard who have just taken delivery of this AMF QRV 1170. We are going to produce a promotional video of this boat soon using a helicopter, we tried this week but got fogged in.
