           NEW CHEAPER PRICES!
Do you have an old 121.5MHz or 243MHz beacon and need to upgrade?

Only need a beacon for several times a year, but not sure it's worthwhile to buy one?

Want to hire one while your current one is in service (to keep your vessel in survey)?

Can't find one to hire in the North Island? (We send them up to you!)


Here is the solution:
Hire our water-proof + floating ACR 406MHz EPIRB / GPS PLB (Personal Locator Beacon).


First week: $35

Second week: $25

$1 per day thereafter


We deliver free within Christchurch area, or via Courier NATIONWIDE for an extra $10 (includes a prepaid return bag).

We do short notice hire in Christchurch area - we are open after hours.

We also do URGENT deliveries (delivered to your closest main city airport - subject to available flights). Extra fee applies.


Prefer to buy a new one instead?

Trade in your old beacons at Boat NZ (32 Settlers Cres, Ferrymead, Christchurch). Print out and bring this page along with your old beacon to Boat NZ, mention this offer and get $30 off the 406 Beacon you purchase. Limit one $30 off per new beacon purchased.
