Drowning Prevention Auckland (DPA), the lead agency for water safety coordination and education in the Auckland region, is proud to announce the sponsorship agreement it has with Aakron Xpress.

Aakron Xpress is New Zealand’s premium dealer of Highfield Boats New Zealand; the world’s largest manufacturer of aluminium-hull rigid inflatable boats (RIBS).

This formal sponsorship agreement demonstrates the shared goals of water safety that exist between our organisations. Boat safety in, on and around the water is paramount for drowning prevention in Auckland and is such a priority for Aakron Express, that for every boat sold, they make sure the new owner has the necessary lifejackets to stay safe when using the Highfield boat they have purchased.

Aakron Xpress have sponsored Drowning Prevention Auckland the Highfield Club 420 boat, Suzuki engine and a trailer. The Club 420 boat is perfect for Drowning Prevention Auckland’s open water programmes especially its Kai Moana Gathering and Coastal Awareness programmes. The Club 420 offers the strength and durability of an aluminium hull and the spacious practicality that is required. The Club 420 boat is also a tough, reliable and safe boat which gives our team of aquatic educators the tools to be able to educate about drowning prevention appropriately.

A big thank you from the team at Drowning Prevention Auckland. We know that this partnership will enable us to effectively work towards our overall goal of reducing the drowning toll in the Auckland region.
