Generally for bareboat hire your day will go as follows;

  1. You and your party will organise a specific time to meet with Nick at the boat ramp area at Clearwater Cove, Hobsonville Marina, West Harbour; see bottom of page for Map.
  2. Nick will then give you and your party a safety and boat use brief. 
  3. Paperwork time! A booking form will be completed with each of the passenger names filled out. 
  4. Pay time! The price discussed for your day will be required and paid for at this point in either cash or via cheque (please note; no eftpos/visa available) 
  5. ​A deposit of $1000; which can be a cheque filled out to Auckland Boat Rentals must also be provided at this time. This will simply be returned on completion of the hire unless any damage has occurred obviously.


On Return: A time will be agreed, also a text message when you are near the
Auckland bridge is required so that Nick can be ready and waiting for you at the boat ramp.

The boat will then be trailered and we will make our way to the nearby Z Westgate Gas Station to refill the petrol tank. 

Finally! Your deposit is returned and it's time for a beer!!!
