Whangarei Marine Services offers a comprehensive marine engineering service from a workshop situated at Riverside Drive Marina, and covers the greater Whangarei district from a fleet of service vans. We are Whangarei’s only authorised dealer for Volvo Penta and Yanmar, but also have experience in servicing a wide range of diesel and petrol inboard motors.
Beyond motors, the team have extensive knowledge of all things marine mechanical – including drive trains, control systems, exhausts, winches, pumps, and steering. Our service offering includes installation, general maintenance, and repair work.
We are happy to tackle any size job, from an oil change through to motor replacement. We will work in the place of your choice in the greater Whangarei district. Where applicable we will take you through repair or replace options you may have so you can make informed decisions.
Our aim is for you to have confidence in the mechanical reliability of your boat. To help achieve this we recommend that all boat owners set up and work to a maintenance schedule. As a minimum, this should cover engine and drive train, but ideally would extend to cover all mechanical parts including pumps, toilets, winches, generators etc. If you have a Volvo Penta or Yanmar motor we can provide you with the supplier’s recommended maintenance schedule. In all cases, we are happy to work with you to set up a schedule specifically for your boat.
Experience suggests that maintenance tends to be left until the weather gets hot, about a week or two before Christmas. This is the busiest time of the year and can mean that work that should get done ends up being pushed out. To avoid this we offer special winter rates to encourage you to plan for major work to be performed during the off season.
