A volunteer based maintenance facility
We operate a friendly volunteer staffed Haul-out facility and small hard-stand maintenance area on the Causeway at Ostend. Proceeds go towards supporting the clubs existence including developing Junior sailing and safe boating in the beautiful waters surrounding Waiheke Island.
The facility is primarily for members who by joining will benefit from a lower club fee structure, however the club will accept requests for use from the wider boating community, especially in emergencies.
There is no long-term storage capacity so use of the yard is strictly subject to a defined maintenance time-frame agreed at the commencement of hauling.
The facility is very tide dependant and has limitations on vessel dimensions and weight. Please discuss these factors with us at the time of booking. On acceptance of your booking and agreement of our terms and conditions, the Slip-master will agree a suitable date and time plus assist with hire-age of our pressure sprayer, cradles and electricity. You will need additional friends or family to help you launch or retrieve, guided by the slip-master.
Notice: the club has commenced an up-grade of this facility in conjunction with the Local Board of Auckland Council. Stage one is complete and building of a pathway linking the two reserves via the foreshore is in progress.
