Rotorua, New Zealand.



The University of Waikato...

...has worked with Orca Engineering & Marine Ltd on a number of projects over the last ten years.

The projects have ranged from the full design and build of purpose built aluminium pontoon boats for general research work to smaller additions and alterations to suit particular research requirements.

At all times I have been very impressed with the innovative approach and solutions to our special, often unusual, requirements that the Orca staff have brought to the design and manufacture of these projects.

The finished product has always been consistently of the highest standard, delivered on time and to budget.
I look forward to working with the company and its staff with future boating requirements.

Rotorua Lakes Coastguard

We just returned from taking our new vessel to Lake Taupo so that Turangi Coastguard could have a good test run with it. Really had to watch they kept trying to put it in their shed.

This was the first opportunity that we have had to test in any big sea conditions all I can say is BLOODY AWESOME handled like a dream...

The skill of Orca Marine in building it the flexibility Orca gave us when setting up the internal layout was exceptional and really went above and beyond. Orca stuck to their original cost to the cent so there were NO overruns or unexpected bills.

Rotorua Coastguard are incredibly pleased with the finished product and would not hesitate to recommend Coast Design and Orca Marine to anyone.

Thank you once again for supplying and exceptional vessel, that will server the Rototua Lakes for many years to come.

Rotorua Regional Airport

Orca Engineering has been associated with the Rotorua Regional Airport for some years and have worked on numerous projects at the Airport.

The last major project the Orca team helped with was importing and converting two fire trucks to enable the Airport to be ready for international flights. The project was outside the comfort zone of many other businesses but Orca approached it with a positive and "can do" attitude. They showed excellent innovative design and engineering skills, and also made the project their own and their management skills were second to none. Orca's staff showed fantastic leadership through the project, and that enabled us to have the project completed on time and within budget.

I have found the Orca team always easy to deal with and always very professional, and they come highly recommended from the Rotorua Regional Airport.

Scion Next Generation Biometals

I have no hesitation in providing this reference forOrca Engineering who have worked as engineers for Scion (formerly known as Forest Research and FRI) for the past 10 years on over 200 projects. These projects encompassed a wide range of engineering types, values, and levels of service...

Orca have frequently had to work to tight budgets and critical time lines whilst ensuring that the work did not disrupt ongoing research work on our campus. They have developed a sound understanding not only of our physical needs but also our company culture and systems.

We are very pleased with Orca Engineering'sattitude and approach. Their technical capability and cost conscious approach to design is why we have maintained a good working relationship with them over the past 10 years.

Personal Customers

Also wanted to mention that we are huge fans of the Orca now that we own.

People love our boat and everyone inquires about it. We love how light it is and maneuverable. It really handled well in the Hawaiian waters and can take a beating. It's built like a tank.
