Ata Rangi

“We recently hauled Ata Rangi out at Vessel Works for a 4-month refit. I found the yard, staff and facilities to be highly professional and accommodating.” – Barnaby Newton, Captain

All the contractors we required for the refit were either based at the yard, or within the nearby precinct, making it an ideal yard for our project.

We will be visiting Vessel Works again for our annual haul out and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Vessel Works to any other captains or boat owners when considering their next haul out.
