About Sandspit Marina

Sandspit Marina is a state-of the-art boutique marina completed in July 2016.  It has 134 berths ranging in size from 12 to 18 metres and caters for the members of the Sandspit Yacht Club and visiting boaties. There are berths available for both long and short-term rent.


The marina is located in the Matakana River alongside the Sandspit Yacht club.  In the heart of the Matakana vineyard region with bush walks and beaches all around, the protected harbour is a great jumping off point for trips out to Kawau Island, the Hauraki Gulf, Gt Barrier Island and for those heading north.

The marina is a 40 minute drive from Auckland Harbour bridge, turning off at the country town of Warkworth.  The stunning Omaha and Pakiri beaches and world recognised Goat Island Marine Reserve are short drives to the North.

The entrance to the estuary is limited to a draft of 1.5metres at low tide.

Managed by the Sandspit Marina Society, an incorporated not for profit society. All berth licence holders are members of the Society and must also be current members of the Sandspit Yacht Club.

Sandspit Marina is a member of the New Zealand Marina Operators Association.
