Westhaven Marina Is not only the largest marina in the southern hemisphere, it’s also the stage for adventure, competition, relaxation, challenge, and so much more. For many, it’s a kind of home, for others it's a city landmark, and it’s been that way for more than seven decades. More than 2,000 boats of all kinds are based here, it is surrounded by a vibrant marine industry, and nestled within a spectacular marine playground that we know as the Hauraki Gulf. There is no doubt that Westhaven Marina is at the heart of all things boating, and the start and finish point for many nautical adventures and legendary sailing careers. 


Westhaven takes pride in upholding a clean environment, and achieved international Blue Flag status for the tenth consecutive year in 2013/14. As its custodians, Waterfront Auckland, are committed to achieving sustainable development to ensure ecosystems are resilient for future generations of Aucklanders.


Over a number of years and following detailed consultation with the boating and local community, Waterfront Auckland has put together the Westhaven Plan to detail how the area will be developed for the future, in terms of both marina facilities, and use of public space 


Westhaven Marina is home to four yacht clubs, the Auckland Dragonboating Association, the Ponsonby Sailing School, and dozens of charterboat operators. Even on a limited budget, there are many opportunities to hit the water, for beginners and experienced boaties.


With heaps and heaps of prizes, famous Z Pier hospitality, the Legasea team on hand to fillet and clean your fish, and a focus on sustainability, the GoFuel Westhaven Fishing Classic is a great reason to get out fishing with your friends and family. No boat? No problem. Book a ticket with the Z Pier fleet.
