NZ Cat Haul Out?

Can Any one advise of a good place to have a 7.5 m wide cat brought out of the water in the Auckland area? We will arrive min November.

Go here, click on the ad second from top left column

Crew.org.nz • Index page

(Apologies to CF for daring to mention another website, but hey it was the easiest way to answer him)


Also Gulf Hr marina has a wide travel lift that takes my mates Crowther 47.

Gulf Harbor does a nice job, and their travel-lift can handle up to 7.9m.

Check out Mahurangi Marina which is north of Auckland, in the town of Warkworth.
Small boatyard, but big travel lift.

Trouble with Warkworth is you have to navigate your way up a very tidal, un charted creek following wooden posts to avoid the banks...I tried it once in a boat that only drew 3 ft and went aground !

Orams.

Stone's throw from Westhaven Marina Auckland downtown. Within 5 minute's walk to two dozens of boatyard, chandleries, engine mechanic's ...

I fixed my boat there and, contrary to what said by ALL WISE cruisers ORAMS gave me the LOWEST rates anywhere Opua to Wellington ...

Sometimes the apparently simplest solution is the simplest one.

Cheers,

Gulf Harbour. They have (supposedly) the largest capacity lift in NZ and they can take that size no problem. If you like we can pop in tomorrow (we live here) and get you the price for your boat? The prices are probably on the internet somewhere but not sure if they are kept up to date. It is no problem being only a walk up the finger. Let us know. However as Barnakiel says if you need to watch the price then Orams may be the answer too.

What Albro359 says about Warkworth is true, it's extremly shallow.

We anchored at the mouth of the river and then the guy who ran the yard, Neil, helped piloted us safely up the river. Our draft was only 2 and a half feet.

Whangarei not Auckland area and a long drive up a very tidal river.

You can make it up the Whangarei Harbour on a cat or tri or up to 2m draught mono at any stage of the tide to the Norsand haul out. It takes me on my 37' c,boarder around 1,1/2 hours at 4.5 knots. No Whangarei isn't Auckland area it is nicer, about 2.5 hours drive if you "had" to go to Auckland.

Many thanks to every-one, a few options for us to consider. The Landing has said they can handle us too.
