Discover Whangarei

Watch the video to find out why Yachts are sailing in from around the world to enjoy Whangarei harbour.  

Growing Whangarei: The marina will benefit the local boating public and also give re-fit work opportunities to Whangarei’s expanding marine specialist industry, providing both employment and economic development. It will cater for a blend of permanent local boats and seasonal visitors, in particular welcoming the hundreds of overseas yachts who sail down to visit New Zealand. 

The project is included in both the Whangarei District Council 20/20 momentum plan, and due to its significant economic development benefits, also in the Tai Tokerau Northland Economic Action Plan. The independent economic impact report has predicted that when the marina berths are fully occupied we will experience an ongoing economic impact of $9.5M/annum and the indirect generation of 94 new jobs.
