New Zealand has nurtured generations of race winning yachtsmen, and thousands of passionate boaties. In every recent Americas Cup racing regatta you will find New Zealanders at the core of the winning team; just as you'll find them in all other areas of challenge and endeavour.
Ron Holland - pioneer designer of the modern super yacht, Bruce Farr and Russell Bowler - designers of some of the fastest racing yachts in the world, and Sir William Hamilton - inventor of jet-boatpropulsion. These are just a few of the many who have challenged conventional thinking in the quest for enhanced performance. Neil Gilmore, Chief of Design for Smartswitch, is another New Zealander with a passion for delivering world beating technology and performance. His practical understanding of vessel operation, teamed with his genius for designing software solutions, is at the heart of every Smartswitch system.
The beauty of the Smartswitch family of products lies not only in the sophistication of operation - demonstrating a practical understanding of vessel operations - but also in the ease of installation and superior reliability.
