More notes about the marina

Chaffers Marina is a floating marina in Wellington's inner harbour with a prime location adjacent to Te Papa (Museum of New Zealand). It was completed in 1993 and offers facilities anbd services to both visiting vessels and berth licence holders. The marina is protected by a floating breakwater and is attached to the Clyde Quay wharf. The deep water site offers large berths and a comprehensive range of facilities and amenities.

Numerous bars, cafes and rstaraunts as well as medical and commercial services are all within easy reach. The marina is located on the city's bus routes and is 5km from Wellington Airport.

A fixed travel lift provides on-site haul out facilities for vessels up to 40 tonnes displacement. Local marine services can be provided on-site by boat builders, engineers, chandlers, painters, sail makers, yacht riggers and other trades.


The marina breakwater is conspicuous from all directions with Te Papa Museum making an imposing backdrop. Alongside is the Overseas Passenger Terminal, which, as this is written is the scene of a major building site transforming the terminal into an apartment complex. The marina is easily entered in all weather from the NE. For your first visit ask for guidance or follow another vessel in, if visitng at night.


Visiting yachts should contact the marina in advance of their visit to arrange a berth.
