OPENING JUNE 2017
Continued growth at Port Opua, New Zealand’s largest clearance Port, has led to the expansion of the Bay of Islands Marina.
The marina expansion will enable international cruisers to have ready access to short & longer term berthage & expanded hardstand services. Catering for the changing demands & sizes of visiting boats, the new marina will provide the largest number of CAT berths available in New Zealand & a significant pool of 16m plus mono-hull berths.
The marina will be formally commissioned and blessed by local iwi at the end of June 2017.
“Five star” toilet, showers & visitors lounge have opened & reflect the Company’s commitment to deliver the highest quality services we can for our customers.
With the extra berths, lower discounted prices are available. If you book now, prices are currently being offered at a 25% saving on previous years.
In addition to the new berths and marine-based infrastructure the expanded, new-look marina will feature a board-walk frontage and a landscaped recreational area. This will include seating, barbeques, a performance and entertainment stage and a play zone for children.
The plan is to create a venue a venue that people will enjoy and bring their families to. We want to turn this place into one of the main centres for our community. That’s good for everyone; the people who live and work here, the people who want to berth here, and the businesses who’ve set themselves up here.
We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Bay of Islands.
