Marine Distributors Limited | Evinrude New Zealand | All rights reserved 2020

TKO Boats was created to deliver the best looking, best riding, custom aluminium trailer boats in New Zealand. Making this possible, owner and foreman Dean Giddens, has hand-picked a team of ten of the most experienced, talented, humanitarian and good-looking marine trade people in the Southland region.


Dean is arguably the most qualified boat builder in Australasia with 6 trades and 30 years’ experience and knows no compromise when it comes to quality ride and quality finish.


TKO Boats is one of the lucky few boat-building companies whose designs are drawn and developed by Jarrod Hall from Hall Marine Designs. A leading naval architect and at the forefront of NZ powerboat design, Jarrod’s expertise is exclusive to only the finest aluminium boat builders. Dean and Jarrod have a long working relationship together and excited to be collaborating under the TKO banner.


We can access and supply most brands of componentry for your build but have chosen to partner closely with brands we believe deliver the highest level of all-round performance to our boars; namely Evinrude and Garmin. We have extensively compared their closest rivals across the board and found, with our installation, that Evinrude and Garmin reliably deliver what others can’t. We know this is a bold statement and we are more than happy to chat about why.
