Project Programme & Progress

Project Overview

The Hyundai Marine Sports Centre has been designed to operate as a true multi-user facility. It will include over 800m2 of training and educational areas as well as event spaces capable of hosting more than 300 people. It will remain the home of the historic Royal Akarana Yacht Club as well as other sports clubs.

To be built on The Landing in Okahu Bay and due for completion in 2019, The Hyundai Marine Sports Centre will allow for a wide variety of sports events to run concurrently. In addition to this, it has the capacity to operate as a hosting facility for larger national and international events, and provide outstanding training areas and meeting rooms equipped with the latest audio visual and learning aides. The Centre will also provide the wider community with the opportunity to actively participate, spectate or just enjoy the spectacular views and quality services in a safe, family friendly environment.

With demolition of the old Royal Akarana Yacht Club clubrooms scheduled to take place early in the New Year and Fletcher Construction ready to commence the build, focus now shifts to securing funding for the fit out of the completed building…
