The Boatworks is a boat builder and refitter located in Gulf Harbour and started in 2011 by esteemed boat builder and shipwright Nicholas Schmidt.
Nick has had a passion for boats as long as he can remember. Growing up in Warkworth just north of Auckland he was always close to the water and spent a lot of his time boating and surfing at the local beaches and waterways.
Since then his passion has come a long way. After gaining skills and qualifications here in New Zealand Nick took to the seas and began his career working on some of the highest calibre superyachts throughout the world. This aided Nick in honing his skills and developing an exceptional eye for detail in an industry that thrives on precision workmanship and uncompromised quality.
Nick takes great pride in his work to ensure anything that leaves the workshop is more than up to scratch and met by his high standard, his clients agree. See what they’ve had to say here.
