addr:type=water indicates that an address is only accessible by boat. This tag was added to water addresses in New Zealand during the import.

In New Zealand, there is a difference between Street Addresses and Water Addresses. Some addresses can only be accessed by boat (there is no road). These properties have water addresses.
