Exciting day today – we lifted a 47m, 315t superyacht at the marine precinct. A great opportunity to put our 350t travel-lift through its paces, while allowing the owner to get urgent maintenance done right here in Tauranga. This is the largest of four test-lifts we’ve done since assembling the machine. Next step: to give it a final stress-test with a 400t commissioning lift later this month. We’re looking forward to opening the machine for bookings soon Tauranga City Council ... See MoreSee Less

It's all go! After weeks of preparation we're pouring the first 1,175 tonnes of concrete to build the hardstand at the Tauranga Harbour Marine Precinct. This is the pavement where boats of up to 350 tonnes will be stored once they’re lifted out of the water by the precinct’s vessel-hoist. The hardstand is designed to cope with loads of up to 500 tonnes. A massive piece of work and an exciting milestone reached today! ... See MoreSee Less

Another major milestone reached for the Marine Precinct! Today we signed the purchase agreement with Cimolai Technology for our future vessel hoist (travel-lift), the soon to be largest-capacity hoist in New Zealand.The Tauranga Harbour Marine will be home to New Zealand's largest-capacity mobile vessel hoist when it opens for business mid next year.
This means businesses in the precinct will be able to lift, move and store some of the larger commercial fishing and work boats from the region and further afield, and attract catamaran vessels such as inner-harbour fast ferries.
