The Protector story, so far

OUR CEO

“Our boats are the product of exhaustive research and development to constantly improve the designs, ride, seaworthiness, all-round utility and family comfort. Exceptional on-water performance can only come from the utmost attention to quality and design. The results of this focus can be found in any Rayglass, as many satisfied owners and organisations will happily endorse.”

Dave Larsen, Rayglass CEO

EMIRATES TEAM NZ

“Rayglass has played an integral role in the success behind Emirates Team New Zealand over the years. As a team, we spend countless hours out on the water in all conditions imagineable. It is crucial that our fleet of support vessels can handle any water, any where, which is why we have repeatedly chosen a fleet of Protector’s as our official support boat of choice”
