City of Sails

Auckland is known as the City of Sails
, and it has many boat marinas within its boundaries.

This is Westhaven Marina, Auckland, the largest marina on the Waitemata Harbour. It provides secure berthage for 1,800 craft, with 1,400 marina berths and is one of the largest and most well equipped marinas in the Southern Hemisphere.

It offers a large range of facilities to boat users, including launching ramps, working berths, a mast gantry, haulout facilities, yacht grids for repairs and sewage pump out facilities.

Four of Auckland’s senior boating clubs are located at the marina – the Ponsonby Cruising Club, Richmond Yacht Club, Victoria Cruising Club and the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron.

In the distance you can see part of Auckland City, with the Sky Tower taking up much of the attention.
