What We Do

Since 1974 Marsden Yacht and Boat club has been providing people with a platform to enjoy the beautiful waters of Whangarei Harbour.  You can read more about the club’s history here.  In recent years the club has gone through a multitude of changes embracing new ways of enjoying the water other than the traditional forms of yachting and dinghy sailing.  Sailing is still at the core of our club but our members can regularly be seen out there kayaking, paddleboarding, windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing or simply trying to catch the big snapper that got away last season. 


Marsden Yacht & Boat Club was set up to create a focal point for the community to enjoy all things on the water of Whangarei Harbour and Bream Bay.  From its humble beginnings at Marsden Point, it grew into the place for the local community to come together not just for sailing but socially. The club has refocused recently to encourage people from varying interests and ages to join and become an active part of the One Tree Point community.  This thriving and growing area has a wonderful body of water on, in and around which people can find a multitude of activities to enjoy themselves.
