I am looking at buying a boat and I am unsure whether it requires brakes or not? Can you help?

In New Zealand the law is if the boat weighs over 2000kg it requires brakes and over 2500kg requires breakaway. It is also recommended you refer to the handbook of your vehicle to ensure your vehicle has the towing capacity of the boat/motor/trailer package.

We have an extensive range of mechnical Hydrastar Brakes as well as Brake Parts - orcontact us for your specific needs.
