New Build Boats

Custom-built boats are for discerning owners who know what they want and have exacting requirements. Whether you’re from Tauranga, Auckland or the Waikato when you get a boat built for you by Marra Marine you don't have to compromise on a thing.

Neither do you have to compromise on quality. There simply is no comparison between a custom-built boat and a production line boat in the quality stakes, particularly if you get your boat built by us at Marra Marine.

Our experience covers all sizes and types of boats, from small and luxurious vessels to large boats and superyachts. We can look after the whole process, including the design stage. We'll fully plan and project manage the build, taking care of everything from the major aspects of the job to the finer details.

We'll work closely with you throughout the process to ensure we understand what you want to achieve, as well as to ensure we are delivering on your expectations.
