Custom Installations – Bow Thruster

The owners’ of this Sun Odyssey 440 decided to opt for a bow thruster installation for ease of use when berthing, especially when the wind picks up.

They decided to go for a retractable thruster, to reduce the drag associated with a traditional internal thruster.  This method offers a very responsive thruster that is quick to extend at the touch of a button at the helm station.

Check out the photos of the installation process!

SeaDek Application

SeaDek non-skid marine flooring is the ideal solution for protecting your deck and your feet! Durable and shock absorbent, SeaDek provides exceptional traction, comfort and protection and is suitable for all boat types.

The owner of this Merry Fisher 795 decided to have SeaDek applied for added comfort underfoot and protection from chips and scratches on the deck.

Delamination Repairs

Orakei Marine do a range of repairs including delamination, gel coat chips, osmosis, cracks or spider webbing and rot. Be sure to get your repair sorted by us early to ensure small issues don’t turn into bigger problems later on.

Carpe Diem – Teak Duckboard

To update the look of this Riviera 43 the owner decided to lay teak on the duckboard. This also matched the look of the cockpit and was a simple but very effective improvement to the boat.

Moanalua II – Exterior doors

An owner of a vessel under our vessel management program came to us with a problem, a draft around the superstructure at anchor was making the cockpit cold. The solution; build some doors across the sidedecks that would stop the flow of wind into the cockpit at anchor. They can be opened while underway to minimize resistance and enable easy passage along the sidedecks. At anchor in the evening they can be closed to seal off the cockpit and keep everyone toasty warm!
“The workmanship of the in house boat building team is top class and is exemplified by the beautifully crafted wing doors they built for the boat in 2010 and have been greatly admired”

– Owner of Moanalua II

Prestige 450S  – Fishing Equipment

As a keen Fisherman this Prestige 450S owner decided to add some kiwi additions to his new boat. So our qualified Boatbuilders set out to craft a refrigerated kill bin into the swim platform, 2x live bait bins, stainless steel railing with 5 gates, mounts for 2 bait boards, and 10 fixed rod holders. They also installed a cockpit tap and basin a mounting system to store fishing rods in the cockpit overhead locker as well as in the garage door for boat hooks and nets and they installed a bait freezer in the cockpit.

Quattro – Cabinets & Drawers

To create extra storage in the fwd cabin of a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 439, the owners of this sailing yacht requested two cabins and a set of drawers for under their bed. The Orakei Marine boat building team set out to tackle this challenging task and have created stowage additions that look as though they were already there, check out the final products in the images below.

 “Thanks for the awesome job on our new cabinetry on-board Quattro. The level of workmanship and finish is outstanding and the final outcome has exceeded our high expectations – so a huge pat on the back to you and your team from us!”
