Our Concept
Each year on average 1.3 million Kiwi’s take to the water, but unfortunately drowning has consistently been the third highest cause of unintentional deaths in New Zealand for over 10 years.

Skipper aims to help reduce the number of deaths by drowning in New Zealand. The app consolidates essential information and presents it simply, giving boaties and their friends and family peace of mind when out at sea.

“Both conceptually and visually strong, this is a clever solution to a real-world problem.”
