Orams Marine’s expansion is continuing to take shape, with the second concrete slab of this comprehensive superyacht refit facility’s new 12,000 square-metre hardstand now poured.

It forms part of a multi-million dollar project which will give superyachts cruising the Pacific a full-service refit destination able to cater to a broad range of vessels.

The new additions to Orams Marine’s Auckland location, from where it’s served the marine industry for 35 years, include an expanded hardstand, 820-tonne and 85-tonne marine travel lifts, increased space for marine trades and services and a broad-reaching sustainability plan.

Many of the on-site marine trades and services will expand their capacity and capabilities as new premises are built to accommodate their growth.

The 32,000 square-metre site is set in the heart of Auckland’s marine precinct in a prime waterfront location, and is a short walk from the 36th America’s Cup village, as well as Auckland’s CBD. This world-class yard has become a favourite with refitting crew due to its high-quality work, excellent amenities nearby, attractive and secure crew housing, and easy access to Auckland’s Harbour and Hauraki Gulf islands.

As a gateway to some of the most-adventurous cruising grounds in the world, the Orams Marine team is adept at refitting yachts which need to be prepared for any cruising conditions.
