Wynyard Quarter marine development

Wynyard Quarter marine development - Wynyard Quarter

The Wynyard Quarter story is founded on Tāmaki Makaurau / 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 Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland, and Aotearoa 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 transformed into a marine centre that supports a superyacht refit facility. In the future it will also include commercial buildings and apartments. This marine centre will create more than 500 jobs and give a major economic boost to the marine and tourism industries.
