"Wanaka Marine have serviced our Southern Sport with Mercruiser diesel inboard since new. Now done just over 1500 hrs. Radar and VHF fitted by Wanaka Marine. Service good and staff helpful".


"Great service for 100 hour boat service which only requires a phone call to Ian who then organises pick up and return delivery when it suits them. Worry free for us and a call away if there's any problems. Fantastic"!

Gary Racz - Otautau

"I have dealt with Wanaka Marine over the past 13 years, having purchased boat, motor and recently a jet ski.  I always find them professional in their service and knowledge, and have always trusted them for the servicing of my vessels (including commercial vessel).  With their first class team of mechanics, I know that the job is getting done properly".

Greg Goodsell - Wanaka

Ian, Lynette and their team at Wanaka Marine have been in charge of the mechanical work, both engine, jet unit and all other marine applications, including the regular servicing our commercial jet boats for the 13 years that we have been operating Wanaka River Journeys. Their Mercury specialist mechanics know our jet boats inside and out, their thorough and meticulous work ethic enable us to have hassle free operations, vital for a commercial operator and especially vital for our company operating remotely on the Matukituki River, Mount Aspiring National Park. Expertise aside, this team have been a pleasure to do business with.
They are fair and transparent with their billing, their advice is immeasurable and we feel pretty lucky to be working with a local business that have been part of our Tourism Journey from the start.
