About this Venue

Marsden Yacht & Boat Club was set up to create a focal point for the community to enjoy all things on the water of Whangarei Harbour and Bream Bay. From its humble beginnings at Marsden Point it grew into the place for the local community to come together not just for sailing but socially.

The club has refocused recently to encourage people from varying interests and ages to join and become an active part of the One Tree Point community. This thriving and growing area has a wonderful body of water on, in and around which people can find a multitude of activities to enjoy themselves.
