Preparing for the 36th America's Cup

Preparing for the 36th America's Cup - Wynyard Quarter

Get ready for great. We’re showcasing Auckland as a world-class city, by building the stage for this exciting event. We’re providing platforms and infrastructure for the syndicate bases and creating new superyacht berths.

Our goal is to create an attractive, welcoming waterfront destination Aucklanders and visitors will love, that lasts well beyond a single sporting event.

The preparation works include; extending Hobson Wharf for the Challenger of Record’s base; preparing berths to house the fleet of J-Class sailing yachts that traditionally attend each America’s Cup event; installing berths beside the Emirates Team New Zealand Base in the old Viaduct Events Centre on Hobson Wharf; construction of the platforms of the remaining five challenger bases on Wynyard Wharf and all associated works including breakwaters and dredging.
