Lusty & Blundell Ltd, New Zealand’s leading distributor of high-quality marine products and services, has become the New Zealand agent for the popular range of Zodiac Cadet inflatables.

L&B will initially be offering four Zodiac Cadet models: Roll Ups, Aero Inflatable Floor, Aluminium Floor and Aluminium RIB Light. All will be available in a range of sizes.

“Zodiacs are widely considered the gold standard for inflatables,” says L&B managing director Mark Milburn. “With their 120 years of history, prestige and heritage, Zodiac inflatables are famous for their exceptional loading capacity, reassuring stability, space-saving portability and incomparable quality finishes.

“Zodiac is a premium, internationally renowned brand, represented in over 50 countries throughout the world and Lusty & Blundell is excited to have been chosen as their New Zealand distributor.”

Mark Milburn says Zodiac inflatables are the perfect complement to L&B’s extensive range of white boat and large trailer boat products and will sit comfortably alongside the company’s comprehensive ranges of lifejackets, safety equipment, cranes and davits, electric outboards and the like.

Zodiac’s patented technology includes their unique ‘thermo-bonding’ manufacturing process which offers unparalleled durability with seams that are virtually indestructible. They are also the only manufacturer to have successfully mastered the fitting of a rubbing strake by welding, ensuring the boat is protected by from bumps and knocks and its passengers from spray.
