Auckland Marine is one of Auckland's longest standing marine businesses, incorporated in 1989 it has developed into a top-notch dealership offering a wide range of marine products and accessories.
Auckland Marine's core business is Marine Retail Sales & Service, although a comprehensive range of chandlery, electronics, spare parts and accessories is also available.
Gary & Katie Hatton purchased the business in 2006 and have implemented several key changes since the takeover. The expansion of our boat range to include Fi-Glass fibreglass boats as well as core aluminium products now provides a more comprehensive range than ever before. Since takeover, Gary & Katie have secured the agency for Senator Pontoon boats, an aluminium pontoon boat which offers an alternative to the standard mono-hull. Auckland Marine has recently been appointed as dealers for White Pointer boats, a premier custom aluminium boat brand in the New Zealand marketplace. Auckland Marine Centre also continues their long association with the major Australian aluminium boat brand Quintrex and represents their product for the North Island.
Gary has worked in the Marine Industry since 1999 and has been fortunate enough to have worked with all the major outboard brands, and the majority of boat brands sold in New Zealand. As a result Gary has an in-depth knowledge of the complete range of products on offer and can tailor packages to suit individual requirements.
Matthew Keys joined the Auckland Marine Team in 2009. With wide ranging experience in sales and service in the marine industry he brings a depth of product knowledge and strong customer service focus.
