Trailer Boats – Parking in the Marinas

Parking in the Marinas

Boatshed & Compound tenants
We’d be really grateful if you can return your trailers to your shed or compound space when you have launched. If possible, please leave your vehicle there too. If your vehicle won’t fit or you have mobility issues, you are very welcome to use any non-berth holder car parking space in the marina.

Berth Holder Parking

Please respect the berth holders’ parking- which is for marina berth holders only (guests and visitors can use “Pay and Display parking).

Tie-Up at the launching ramp
A friendly reminder that tying up at the launching ramps is only permitted for while you are parking or retrieving your vehicle. Please don’t leave your vessel for longer periods at the ramp. This ensures the rotational use of the ramps remains efficient and enables a greater flow of boats in and out at the ramps. Please also take the time to load your vessel prior to arriving at the ramp, so that when you’re in, you’re ready to go and not holding up the queue!

Short Stays in the marina
Should you require a tie-up for a longer period please use the Picton Visitors jetty or Breastworks in Picton Marina, or call the Havelock or Waikawa Marina office for options for a casual berth. Please note these short stays require an additional fee.

Waikawa Marina – Shuttle service
In Waikawa, we will provide a courtesy shuttle service at peak times to ensure flow at the ramp. The shuttle services the overflow parking area, boatsheds and compounds D and C at Waikawa.
The shuttle operating hours are from 7.30 to 5pm.

Pay my Park App

To take (most of!) the stress out of parking this season at our marinas, we now have the “Pay my Park” app available.
It can’t guarantee you the best spot or reverse your trailer for you at the ramp, but if you download the app and enter your licence plate, you have the ability to pay online, and also to extend your stay remotely if you end up staying out on your boat longer than intended!
