Wynyard Quarter marine development

Wynyard Quarter marine development - Wynyard Quarter

The Wynyard Quarter story is founded on Auckland’s maritime heritage, and the marine and fishing industries continue to play a part in the next chapter.

Superyachts have become an increasingly familiar sight in the area, with owners recognising the local industry expertise and easy access to a world-class marine cluster.

We’re working with Orams Marine to create additional infrastructure to capitalise further on growth in this sector. This will enable Auckland, and New Zealand, to take a leading role in the competitive international marine industry.

A location known as Site 18 on the corner of Beaumont and Jellicoe streets has been confirmed for a marine centre, including a superyacht refit facility, along with commercial buildings and apartments. It will create more than 500 jobs and give a major economic boost to the marine and tourism industries.

The marine refit facility will be up and running in Wynyard Quarter for the next America’s Cup regatta series.
