West Harbour Marina


This is West Park Marina - also known locally as West Harbour Marina an extensive privately operated recreational boat harbour at Hobsonville in Auckland's upper Waitemata Harbour, a short distance beyond the Harbour Bridge or via highway 16 from Auckland's CBD.

In the distance, to the east, you can see Auckland City, and the Auckland Harbour Bridge is behind the point you can see to the left of the city.

It is the only marina in scenic Waitakere City and the third largest in the Auckland Region.

West Park Marina has a total of 592 berths (slips) ranging in length from 10.4m to 34m. Each berth has a half-length finger alongside and shared access to utilities. Access to berths is electronically controlled with gates at each pier head. Marina operations staff are available to assist with berthing at any time.

West Park Marina serves as both a one-stop-shop for the boating community and as a local hub for the Hobsonville and West Harbour communities. There is a maintenance yard with full range of marine trades and services on site or on call, plus ghandlery shops, provisions and a cafe.

They can provide for short or long-term berthage and have a 35T and 75T Travelift haulout and hardstand facility to cater for a pre-race water-blast or a full refit - and short or long-term boat storage.

You can see the Auckland Harbour Bridge in the distance. . .
