LOL it fully is true (and I fully expected someone to object - so thanks! ). I didn't say it was *good* value - whatever that means to you personally, only that if you choose to make the payment, you

This change is reflective of constant improvements, ongoing marina maintenance and also continued high demand for berths at Westhaven. We are pleased to be able to continue offering berthage fees that remain competitive with other Auckland marinas.

 

Marina management spouting the "party" line.

In reality as a berth holder I receive year in and year out the same service.

Somewhere to park my princess along with access to freshwater and when the electrical nazis are not running amok a battery top up.

My question to you lot is at what point do you collectively say enough is enough. This constant ratcheting of marina fees is totally unjustified and Westhaven stating that the fees are competitive just adds weight to the glaring fact that one bloke owns three marinas and merrily rolls in the hay and they just tag along.

Actually the more I think about the cost of mooring in a marina and the so few players in the market so to speak a question or two to the Commerce Commission would not be a wasted effort.

Simply just not good enough.

Dispiriting I'm sure, and I sympathize. Still, as long as people choose to keep paying, that by itself proves that those people believe the value they're getting from the berth is worth what they're being charged. But I'm sure that won't make anyone feel better.

That’s fully not true.

 

Obvious parallel is Air NZ domestic fares which are scandalous but those of us who use them have limited alternative choice hence do so reluctantly. Doesn’t mean we think it’s good value just because we fly with them.

You talking about the cost of the boat or the marina.  They are both holes in the water that you throw money at.

 

I agree that the constant cranking up of costs is OTT.  People are astounded when I tell them what it costs just to park.

 

That is why trailer boats are so popular (power boats) free parking on your property or the council curb.

 

Rich pricks must pay, so they say.
