With Westhaven Marina’s pontoon berths operating at full capacity, there is a growing demand for new walk aboard berths in Auckland.

One of the solutions outlined in the 2013 Westhaven Plan is the Pile Berth Redevelopment project.


After four years in the making, the new reclamation at Westhaven Marina’s northern end is now open to the public, offering some of the best views across the Auckland Harbour.

The area includes new, larger floating berths (which are in hot demand from boaties), an extension of the popular and award-winning Westhaven Promenade boardwalk along the southern side of the reclamation, and additional car parking with landscaping.

In future years, the lawn area along the northern edge of the reclamation will be developed in partnership with mana whenua, to create a beautiful green space where people can enjoy getting close to the water.


Stage one of the project began in 2019, with the formation of a new reclamation/headland extending the northern end of the marina. The less-utilised pile berths were then consolidated to make space, and the marina’s western entrance was closed off to reduce the tidal effect on boats in this section of the marina. While the reclamation settled, 90 new floating berths were constructed.

Stage two of the project commenced in February 2023, and involved extending the Westhaven Promenade boardwalk along the southern side of the reclamation, installing new utility services, and constructing a new car park with landscaping. Over the coming years, the lawn area will evolve to create an attractive green-space where people can take in the remarkable harbour views.
