About Marine North

Marine North is a locally owned and operated business and has been established since 1985.  Paul Dunn purchased Marine North in November 2006, and has continued to service boating enthusiasts,  initially from the original premises on Okara Drive to their purpose built location at 50 Kioreroa Road which was opened November 2014.

The team at Marine North take pride in going the extra mile for our customers. From listening to our customers we are able to provide our customers with tailored boat packages to suit your personal requirements. Marine North have a great range of boats and Yamaha Waverunners as well as being a dealership for some of the most recognised brands in New Zealand waters: Stabicraft and Surtees.

Need a new outboard for your boat? Not a problem! Marine North have a fantastic range of new Yamaha. How about a used outboard ? All our outboards have been mechanically checked to ensure they are in good working order before going out on the shop floor, and a pre-delivery check is complimentary.

Marine North is complete with a comprehensive workshop for all your servicing needs. Rest assured, your baby will be in safe hands.

At Marine North, Boats are our passion too!
