About Senator

About Senator Boats

Built with passion

As an early pioneer of alloy pontoon boats, we’ve continually evolved and refined our boats to meet the ever changing needs of New Zealand boaties.

Senator is well proven in our most rugged environments and delivers a build and ride quality second to none.

In 1997, avid fisherman and expert aluminium fabricator Wayne McKinley had a lofty idea – to design and build New Zealand’s best aluminium pontoon boats. With a clear focus to deliver unsurpassed value, quality and safety, and by continually listening closely to user feedback, this idea quickly became a reality.

Building enduring relationships with respected and trusted marine dealerships throughout New Zealand, has enabled Senator to focus on what we do best – build awesome boats.

Wherever you go in New Zealand you’ll find Senators being enjoyed – from commercial fishing charters to coastguard through to keen recreational users. It’s fair to say (well our loyal users tell us this every day) that the boats we build at Senator lead the way in aluminium pontoon boats.
