Pier 21 is the emptiest I have ever seen it.

I understand from others that Boatright has moved on, or perhaps even closed down :-( 

I know that the block was for sale.  Are they ramping down for closure?

Massive loss for Auckland boaties if it's turned into apartment blocks.

Pier 21 is for sale but as a marine business (as I understand from several articles I've read) - see link below:

Anybody know anything different?

 

Tamaki Marine Park is useless for yachts unless you're happy to remove your mast before going under the bridge to get there.............

And at Orams they have redeveloped the old hardstand area, so much less room for small yachts in the area sheltered by the buildings.

We had a booking coming out 25 July. Had a phone call from the office today cancelling our booking, property has been sold Pier 21 are no more. I think the date may have been from 22 July, can't remember that part of the conversation.

Multi story apartments to help with the housing crisis?

So what travel lift options does that leave for yachties in Auckland now?

  • Gulf Harbour Marina
  • Hobsonville Marina
  • Orams (does Orams allow owners to work on their boats?)

Does Pine Harbour or Bucklands have travel lifts?

There are other ways of hauling than travellifts just saying....

Of course - can dry out on the mud flats as well.  Doesn't make it convenient or preferred anymore than a cradle.

Sure I would consider other options when all the travel lifts are gone or none are available, but we are not there yet...

This is crazy. NZ's biggest marina, and no hardstand/ haulout nearby. How does this happen. Where is the planning, where is the foresight?

We used to have sailmakers, riggers, boatbuilders, chandlers, bookshops. Now most are gone.  Why didn't the council create a marine precinct with low rates and low rents only allowed for marine businesses?

What a disaster!

Bucklands Beach has 2 travel lifts at Half Moon Bay. I have used their hard stand for the past 5 years. Great service!
