About Us

Simon Minoprio has grown up on the water. He has spent many years travelling the world while professional sailing. It was during this time that he discovered that there was a way to improve the hydrodynamics of the typical alluminum boat in New Zealand and where the concept behind Innovision Boats was born.

Simon is a man of many talents. He is an electrician by trade and has spent many years working at the renowned super yacht manufacturers Alloy Yachts- hence his eye for detail. He also has an intimate understanding of the hydrodynamics of boats given his extensive time on the water on everything from tiller steer tinny to professional sailing on the most advanced carbon fibre race yachts.

Simon, with support from his wife Haylee, started Innovision Boats in 2012 with the research and design work for the Innovision 616 Explorer. This boat was launched in late 2013 and Simon and Haylee have been out sea trialing it over the last six months. And yes, there has been plenty of fish aboard!

They share a passion for creating quality alluminum boats, personalised for your needs and that you will be proud to own. They have plans to develop a range of styles and sizes as they grow the business into the future.
