12.7x8.1 m trimaran Recommendations for haul-out?

Recommended Posts

We are looking to have a yard scrape and spray new bottom paint on a Farrier F39 trimaran. We don't know the area and looking for advice. We are in Opua now and will be sailing to the south island in early January.  We had JJ haul us on his trailer last year but this point loaded the hull and cracked an integrated water tank that we had to repair.  I think either a "SeaLift"; Crane, or a wide travel lift is best for our hulls.  I don't want to do the work this year and looking for the yard to do a good job.

Whangarei or Marsden Cove? 

Hardstand Directory

Thanks for the hardstand directory... hauling a tri is a bit trickier than most boats; Marsden can not  haul us.

Whangarei... Oceania Marine is looking into it....  we are also curious about the yard's reputation/customer satisfaction since we want them to do the prep and paint.

We just did exactly this a week or so ago at Sulphur Point marina in Tauranga, 10.6 x 8m tri, they have a hydraulic trailer. No problem whatsoever, easiest haulout we've ever had. Call Greg, 07 578 8747 or email admin@taurangamarina.co.nz

We used Aaron Lane at Marine Reflections to do the bottom paint, again great job, painless exercise 0275135863

Stop in on your way past to the South Island

After a raucous sail up the west coast with over 6 meter seas and 45 knots of wind, boat speeds above 16 kn hitting 20kn, tired after logging our first ever 300+ mile day....We decided to haul-out in Whangarei at Oceania Marine. They had the very best rate for the haul-out and also if we paid them to do all the anti-fouling... so they were almost the most competitive priced of all the yards that had a travel lift for our beam. (Their Travel lift is 10+ meters wide so easily accommodated our 8.06 meter beam.)

In the last four year of world cruising with two major refits and three bottom jobs.... I would say that I am the most satisfied with this yard for quality of work, friendliness of the staff, and overall ability to get the work done just like I wanted it. This in my experience... is a rare thing to get when you are not doing everything yourself. They did an outstanding job and I am more than 100% satisfied.

We are hanging in the slings now ready to go back in the water. April 23, 2021.
