Living on your boat? 

Whangārei Marina has some capacity to host international and local liveaboards while they are voyaging. If you are considering purchasing a boat to live aboard, we recommend that you thoroughly review our application documents by using this link for living aboard and also check with a range of marinas regarding availability of a berth before you make a purchase, because all berths, especially those suitable for living aboard, are in short supply. 

Did you know that we return our profits to watersports? 

The Whangarei Marina Charitable Trust is a not-for-profit trust that allocates grants annually to local water sports organisations such as the Rowing Club, Sea Scouts, Waka ama, Sailing Clubs, School Sailing Teams and the Whangarei Waka Trust.
