Robert P. Walley – Owner & Manager


Rob and his wife, Ruth, are cruisers who sailed from Cape Town through the Panama Canal and arrived in Opua, New Zealand in December 2010. After circumnavigating the North Island they decided to settle and do business in Opua in the beautiful Bay of Islands. Rob not only understands what cruisers and boaties need, he is a qualified electrician and has years of varied industrial electrical installation and maintenance experience to offer.

Rob’s team of qualified electrical engineers have decades of combined experience in marine electronics behind them. And because we’re all boat owners and sailors ourselves, you know you can count on us to fully understand your needs.
