Packraft New Zealand is locally owned and operated with our headquarters based in Franz Josef Glacier on the West Coast of New Zealand. Founder, Barny Young, is one of New Zealand's renowned whitewater kayakers. When the pandemic hit and international travel came to a halt, Barny was sent a sample pack-raft from Kokopelli and, dubious at first, gave it a try, pushing past its "technical" limits, and was pleasantly surprised at what these inflatable boats were capable of from a white water sense but also a general adventure sense. With the added benefit of them being lightweight and compact, making it easy to hike and float, Barny became inspired to share these products with others and Packraft New Zealand was born. 

Packraft New Zealand is dedicated to offering the highest quality products and customer service. We achieve this by supplying Kokopelli Packrafts, the largest pack raft company in the world, and offering a lifetime warranty on all of our rafts.


Kokopelli is the only pack-rafting company in the world to offer this.


You can call Barny anytime on 027 304 0988 and he will gladly answer any questions you have no matter what level you are at and ensure you get the right gear for you.
