Boat Trade-In Services

Laszlo Boats has launched New Zealand's first Boat Trade-In service. The ultimate goal of this unique approach to boat servicing is to help rowing organisations at every level and background to have the highest quality rowing equipment possible. You can trade your old boat in for a brand-new Laszlo Boat, enabling you increase sustainability and reduce waste for a greener world. We'll value your boat based on independent insurance principles and deduct its monetary value off your new Laszlo hull. We'll then refurbish your previously loved boats, depending on their condition, and sell them second-hand to those with tight budgets or convert them into unique rowing furniture through the skills of Four Leaf, our local furniture artist.

Custom Painted Boats

Rowing boat design has traditionally tended to be on the conservative side. Most of our clients paint their boats in line with their school or club's colour scheme, we can provide this with a world-class finish using only the highest quality workmanship and materials. We have also sensed an increase in demand for strikingly original paintjobs that help to express the rower's personality. A boat, after all, is an extension of each athlete's body, so it's not surprising that an increasing number of athletes want to express their attachment and connectedness to their equipment visually. A good paintjob should be like personalised war paint. Here at Laszlo Boats we encourage our customers to embrace their inner power and express the difference that makes each of us unique. We invite artists to partake in collaborations with the athletes to create boats that are powerful in appearance as well as construction. We encourage and assist athletes to be original and to be the first.
