Hi all, I am a local being based an 8 hour sail North of Opua. For convenience I get most of my work done there and there are good tradesmen there. However there is more competition in Whangarei and surprisingly I have had good work done at a good price in central Auckland near the big Westhaven Marina. Ovlov marine beat the competition by some thousands when I replaced the motor. Again, there is competition there.
Like wise I have high regard for the Bridge Marina and hardstand in Tauranga. Bruce Goodchap the manager of the hardstand is the nicest and most honest guy you could find anywhere. Very helpful too. So guys, you have choices.

Ah ok so my understanding was that Whangarei was cheaper and had more/better contractors compared to Opua.
Is that not the case?
We plan to leave the boat for a few months and travel by RV so we don't care that much where the boat is.
For me the best and cheapest place for all these jobs is OPUA
Nice marina and great facilities and experienced people

I like Riverside Drive Marina Wangarei. Very nice and friendly Marina. No Problem with your electricity like other marinas where you are not allowed to use the electricity before you not have a certificate elektrishen that contols your yacht. Nice town and a cool barbecue area in the Marina.
