Cater Marine Opua, All You Need For Your Home Away From Home

Cater Marine Opua has a tradition in fine marine outfitting with over 30 years of supplying chandlery.

We are situated in Opua, Bay of Islands, which is the first port of call for yachts arriving in New Zealand. In immediate vicinity to

Opua Marina and Ashby’s Boat Yard, Cater Marine is at the heart of the thriving Opua Marine Park.

The Bay of Islands has beautiful sailing waters, a modern marina and top maintenance facilities, all in an internationally acclaimed

holiday spot. All this makes Opua a perfect choice for your next port of call.


We specialize in sourcing unique or hard to find items. We will go the extra mile to satisfy our clients’ requirements. You can email us with your needs prior to arriving in New Zealand and we will make sure it is here when you arrive.
