Nelson Marine Centre Ltd, Nelson Tasman’s newest one-stop shop for boating needs, cut the ribbon on its flagship retail space in Richmond on Monday 29 April, which was followed by an open weekend on 11-12 May.

The new venture is the result of months of hard work by managing director Pete Walters and operations manager Mark Wiblin, both of whom have worked together for years. Having made the jump over from Marlborough, they are now firmly settled in Nelson, bringing their combined decades-long financial and technical experience, and reputation for stellar customer service, with them.

Pete says he and the entire Nelson Marine team are looking forward to supporting locals and visitors to get out and enjoy the region’s stunning coasts and bays.

“Whether you’re a seasoned rider craving high-speed adventures, or a newcomer eager to explore the open waters, at Nelson Marine we’re dedicated to providing unforgettable moments on the water.”

Nelson Marine Centre, 23 McGlashen Avenue, Richmond, offers an extensive selection of top-of-the-line Yamaha outboards, Waverunner Jet Skis, safety equipment and marine accessories. In addition to sales, the dealership will offer maintenance and repair services, ensuring customers receive ongoing support and assistance to keep their Yamaha marine products in top condition. Nelson Marine Centre also offers a range of financing options.
