About us

Laurie Collins Marine in Westhaven had a change of ownership on June 1st 2009. With a new look and almost new team, you will notice the difference when you go to Laurie Collins Westhaven Ltd. A fresh look has been created with new building signage, a new logo and inviting offices.

Laurie Collins has always been one of New Zealand's premium brokerage locations, on one of the largest marinas in the southern hemisphere with over 2,000 boats on the doorstep. Westhaven Marina is centrally located, just minutes from the C.B.D. at 103 Westhaven Drive, Westhaven, under Sails restaurant, where parking is not a problem!

Our team is industry recognised. With years of practical sea-going and ownership experience. We sell yachts, launches and multi hulls of all sizes and price ranging from $50,000 to $5,000,000 and we have the ability to find that boat you're looking for, even if it's not in our listing.

We have an archive of boats listed and sold over the last 25 years, so there are not many boats we don't know about. Wayne Baston, the Managing Director, is keen to make the difference with your buying experience. We have a great team and we are keen to please and go the extra distance to give the customer value for money.

We have looked at the way we do business and decided on an approach where we have people specialising in their area of knowledge, so we can maximise the benefit to the customer.

We are also now specialising in multi hulls, power and sail. We are keen for more listings to help the success of our new direction.

We now have a RIB to assist staff an customers on the water. Getting the best pictures to present your boat at its best.

Wayne wants to offer clients, and the boating public, marine services such as boat grooming and detailing. Our valet department will make the difference to the look of your boat. This can be a one-off or we can look after your boat on an ongoing basis. A lot of our clients are having their boat valet before they list them with us. This adds value and helps to get a good result sooner for a reasonable cost, considering the value of your investment.

Laurie Collins also offers yacht and launch deliveries, coastal and off-shore, with professional skippers.

The aim is to help our clients with the overall package of ownership when you deal with Laurie Collins Westhaven. Go down and see them under Sails Restaurant. If you have a yacht or a launch you want to sell. You will be pleasantly surprised!
