• Dry Dock

Dry Dock
Opened in 1883, the dry dock is listed as a Category 1 heritage site. Today, the dock remains an essential piece of Port infrastructure.

Just one of two permanent dry docks in New Zealand, it’s in continual use, housing both national and international vessels as they undergo maintenance and repair.

Situated within the inner harbour and next to the dry dock the patent slip is available for repair of small craft up to 150 tonnes and with a maximum draught of 2m.

South of the patent slip there is a one-lane slipway for trailer boats.
