Whangarei Marine Services

Formerly known as Ray Roberts Marine. Northland’s Marine Engine Specialists

Whangarei Marine Services offers a comprehensive marine engineering service, including sales, installation, general maintenance and repair work.


We are proud to be the local agents for Volvo Penta and Yanmar, two brands internationally recognised for design excellence in terms of efficiency and reliability and both with strong commitments towards protecting the environment through emission controls. Similar qualities can be seen in the suppliers of all the components we stock.

Whangarei Marine Services stocks an extensive range of mechanical components for yachts and power boats, both pleasure craft and commercial. This includes engines, drive systems, propellers, mounts, steering, generators, pumps, electronics and more. We also stock maintenance supplies such as oil, belts, filters, impellors, and batteries.


Our mobile mechanics are available to install and fully support everything we sell, or the gear you already have. And if your requirements are truly unique, we can offer fabrication and repairs from our on-site workshop.

We are happy to tackle jobs of any size, from an oil change through to motor replacement. Our mechanics have experience in servicing a wide range of diesel and petrol inboard motors, and expertise and knowledge in all things marine mechanical.

Our technicians work out of a well-equipped workshop in central Whangarei, with a fleet of service vans enabling them to cover the greater Whangarei district.

Where applicable we will take you through repair or replace options so you can make well-informed decisions.

Our Team

Our team has been providing mechanical sales, service and support to local and international boaties for over two decades. There is also many years of personal experience of sailing extensively around NZ and the globe.

The staff takes part in regular and on-going training, keeping them up to date with the latest knowledge, equipment, and technology. All jobs are completed with the same care and attention to detail.

The advice of both the service and sales team is highly regarded in Whangarei and further afield.
