Our Approach

You could call us nuts and bolts guys and we wouldn’t be offended. We started out as Kiwiprops first North American Customers and thought so highly of the product we built a business around it!

Our Story

Almost 20 years ago my buddy and I were building and outfitting our cruising catamarans and came across a fellow sailor who had picked up a Kiwiprop while sailing down under. A few phone calls later to the clever Kiwi designer John Blundell and a decades long friendship and business partnership was formed

Not enough room to put everyone here!

Jamie Hallman

President Kiwiprops North America

After starting out as a corporate guy, Jamie became a serial entrepreneur. Believing that part of your career should be your passion, Jamie started up Amurru Marine so he could always be close to the marine industry. Kiwiprops was one of his first marine ventures

John Blundell

Founder KiwiProps Nz

In a Country with arguably the most world class sailors/capita- sorry France, John still stands out as one of the most clever and passionate New Zealand sailors. Whether he’s tinkering with the next generation Kiwiprop or actively developing his local marina, John is a fixture in the Kiwi marine community and is fiercely proud of his country.

Bernard LaSporte

Man About Town

What can we say about Bernard? He manages every aspect of our shop, knows sailors all over the world, is the only guy we know who can fix ANYTHING on a boat and has more ocean miles on his kiwiprops than anyone.
