Covid-19 Information

Marsden Cove Marina Directives
26 March 2020

The Government has directed a level 4 full shut down for New Zealand from
23:59 hours, Wednesday, 25 March 2020. The marina office will be closed from
Thursday, 26 March 2020.

As the Marina is now in “lock down” this means that there will be NO VESSELS
IN AND NO VESSELS OUT unless going out to anchor for the duration of the lock
down period or as advised by our Government.

As the levels have changed rapidly, Marinas have struggled to keep up with
how best to comply with the quarantine restrictions. There has been many
questions and you must still be prepared for changes with Government
directives and our guidelines.

If you are a customer with a boat within our facilities and not living aboard, DO
NOT VISIT YOUR BOAT unless absolutely necessary and more importantly, do
not enter any of the marina facility buildings.


Allowance has been granted to live aboard and use the shared facilities
located beneath the Marina’s office. This will be on a “one in” and “one out”
basis, keeping at all times a minimum of two (2) metres away from each other.

Contact us now if you are still travelling through New Zealand to discuss the
regulations as you will not be allowed to return to your boat! Phone: Brent
Wilson on 021 540888.



If you are not happy with this situation you will need to make alternative
arrangements for your living accommodation now not later.


Some of our customers are over the age of 70 (greater risk). Please offer to help
with shopping or necessities to avoid them leaving our community.

Couriers will only be delivering essential packages to the marina office, keep
an eye on tracking information and check the office before 12:00 noon for any
last-minute packages coming in. It is uncertain yet if the letters/normal post

Please ask your neighbours and others in the marina if they have seen this

We will miss chatting with our lovely marina community for a while and sincerely
wish you all well until the tide turns.
