Westhaven Marina: Gateway to Auckland, New Zealand Find out more: phone 09 379 2020 or visit www.aucklandcity.govt.nz Located on an isthmus between two harbours, nowhere in Auckland is far from sea. The city’s central business district dips its toes into the Waitemata Harbour with a series of wharves, bays and basins including the boutique Hobson West Marina with slips for yachts up to 50m (163ft). At the CDB’s western-most end is Westhaven Marina. With over 1,400 berths, Westhaven is one of the largest and most well-equipped marinas in the southern hemisphere. It is also in a magical position as the northern gateway to Auckland city. We have world-class facilities and welcome all vessels. A comprehensive cluster of marine repair and reﬁt services is located just minutes away, as well as chandleries, shopping malls, supermarkets and a variety of local pubs and cafes with outstanding food, wine and night-life. The reputation of New Zealand’s marine industries is well proven by our achievements on the international yacht racing stage. Having these world-class services right on Westhaven and Hobson West marinas' doorstep is a huge drawcard for visitors who need to service their boats. Beautiful beaches, stunning volcanic scenery, hiking trails and a dozen enchanted holiday islands in the near-by Hauraki Gulf make up Auckland's backdrop. New Zealand is an island nation with more than 15,000km of coastline. Sheltered harbours and bays and expanses of clean blue ocean make up the country’s largest playground. International sailing events held here in the past, such as the America’s Cup and round-the-world yacht races, have captured the hearts and minds of New Zealanders.
