A bit of our Woodbine Marine history.

Woodbine Marine Auckland is the exclusive East Auckland dealer for Sea-Doo personal watercraft as well as agents for Extreme Boats, CSB Huntsman Boats & Honda Marine Outboards. We also design, sell and service Nuline Alloy boats nationally.

We opened our doors in October 2006 with a new chandlery and showroom on the front of a 4,000 square metre site in Ti Rakau Drive, East Tamaki. In 2015 we built a customised under-cover showroom to accommodate more than 40 brand new boats, Sea-Doo’s and inflatables. Whether it’s personal watercraft, family boating, fishing, diving or just having fun out on the water, our experienced passionate staff are here to help you.

Our philosophy is simple. We want you to get the most from your boating experience. This means finding out what your needs are and coming up with the best solution for you! It also means making sure that we stock the brands that are going to give you the best value.

Auckland has one of the best environments for boating – make sure you experience it.

Trusted with more than just watercraft.
