It topped another fine year for Hofmans, who impressed at the national championships rowing for Dunstan Arm.
She has also been included in the New Zealand under-21 squad which is training at Lake Karapiro.
It was the first time Hofmans, who has a scholarship to Yale University, has won the award.
One of her competitors for that top award won both the female school and club rower awards.

It followed an impressive season in which Horan was influential across a range of crews.

named in the New Zealand under-19 squad, by being named male school rower of the year.
Dunstan Arm’s under-18 women’s quadruple sculls crew claimed crew of the year.
Paige Furrie, Mackenzie Ealson, Sophie Smith (Dunedin), Sophie Smith (Alexandra) and cox Billie Grant took the award after a dominant season.
Grant claimed a second award when she was named cox of the year.
Dunstan Arm’s quadruple sculls crew of Ruby Smith, Tahlia Nelson, Elle King, Emer Bryant and cox Tessa Handford also won novice crew of the year.
Simon Smith added another two awards for Dunstan Arm, claiming both masters rower of the year and coach of the year.
