About Us

Oceanpro Boats are manufactured by Pauanui Marine & Engineering Ltd, owned and operated by Mike Bush. Mike studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Auckland and worked as a designer for New Zealand’s leading manufacturer of RIB Coastguard vessels. After that he took on a role as the head designer and manufacturing manager for their US based boat builder that specialised in superyacht tenders, military and work boats with clients including the US Coast Guard, Dept of Justice, Police and Oracle Team USA.
Following his dream of setting up his own boat company, Mike returned to New Zealand and has applied his extensive experience into his own business to manufacture custom and production aluminium boats for the local market.
