Mana Cruising Club Inc.

A family friendly club with a focus on both on and off water activities

Welcome to our safe haven in Mana, formed in 1959 by a group of dedicated boaties.
The Mana Cruising Club is a friendly, family based community club for all, for both boaties and locals,  fostering safe boating and on and off water activities.

Following the introduction of the new Covid 19 Protection Framework the Club has no option but to follow the Vaccine Pass Verification process.

Which means:
  • All staff must be vaccinated
  • All customers must be vacinated
  • The Club must sight all customer Vaccine Passports.  It is strongly recommend these are verified, therefore we will be using the vaccine passport verification app.
  • Face covers are encouraged
The Wardroom will be open to Members, with their vaccine passports, on Thursdays and Fridays until the 17th of December.  
The Wardroom will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays - this decision has been made due to the mandate requests and our facilities.
We will head into a new year next year with plans being developed...

Thanks for understanding and we look forward to seeing you again.

Mana Cruising Club was founded in 1959 in a boatshed on the Paremata inlet, by a group of dedicated boaties. These original members recognised the need for a base to maintain and repair their vessels as well as a venue for
socialising. Minutes of the second meeting of the committee record, “But we must
remember that we are building not only for ourselves but also future generations - and our long term planning
must be on a sufficient scale to cater for the undoubted growth of the club”.

Mana crusing club built its first clubrooms in 1962/63 and significantly expanded them in 2004 to the current facilities alongside the Marina.

Marina at nightThe foresight of the original club members has seen the club develop over the last 60 years to its current state where we have a modern travel lift, extensive hardstanding facilities, and trailer boat launching ramp and parking as well as a clubhouse that contains a fully equipped restaurant, wardroom and function room.   

Today, Mana Cruising Club has arguably the best facilities of any boating club in New Zealand. We celebrate the commitment, passion and planning that has brought the club to its present situation and hope that the next 60 years will present more opportunities for furthering the Club's goal of developing a friendly, family based club, while fostering safe boating.
