Our History - Years of Quality NZ Manufacturing & Innovation

Everyone agrees that the Fishtex Predator Kontiki is the best there is. Smooth handling, powerful performance and world-class engineering are the hallmarks of Predator's performance. So who's behind this innovative product?

waltex-logo-regular.pngKevin Walton has always had a gift for quality design and engineering. His smart agricultural products (Waltex brand tough storage boxes) are in demand around the world. Kevin added the Predator Kontiki to his list of product innovations in 2005 when disappointed in the performance of an alternative product. Kevin and his son Nigel then brought their ideas together to inspire the market-leading Predator. The product is engineered by Fishtex (a sister company of Waltex) offering a 30lb motor thrust, 44-pound and 54 pound Predator options. Auto Nav was also introduced with its clever advantage of maintaining a true course out to sea.

The Predator's unique design, natural shape and tail fin is designed to sit low in the water and dive through and under even heavy breaking surf. The Predator is incredibly easy to use and it's also light, weighing from only 12kg including batteries. Fishtex is dedicated to delivering the highest quality product and that's backed up by superior service and the Predator two-year product warranty.
Assembled in Ashhurst just outside Palmerston North, the Predator is put through rigorous testing before it's dispatched, ensuring each valued customer gets maximum quality and value.

The Predator is in all respects a kiwi original, designed and made in New Zealand and available at leading retailers. With hundreds of satisfied customers and growing worldwide demand, the Predator is set to sail even further in the future.
