The costs of developing the marina, car parks and the launching ramps were all met by the berth holders. Bucklands Beach Yacht Club members do have access to the loading, the work berths and short and long term rentals of marina berths. The Marina comprises three piers and a floating breakwater adjacent to the larger Half Moon Bay Marina, providing boats with easy access to the waters of the harbour, the Hauraki Gulf and its islands. There are over 110 berths, ranging in size from 10.5m to 22m.
The club has a haulout yard located at Grangers Point, which is run by volunteers and available to fully-paid club members only. Haulout is generally available by appointment on Saturdays from May to November inclusive. Should the sea state preclude operations on the Saturday, the team will often try to haul on the Sunday. Power and water is available on the hardstand. It offers the ideal arrangement for those able to perform their own maintenance, as fees are significantly cheaper than neighbouring sites and significant savings can be made, especially on longer jobs.
For more complex or specialist maintenance, Half Moon Bay Marina next door offers a range of services including marina boat builder, yacht rigger, marine engineers, marine electrical services, stainless welding, boat painter and outboard services. It also has a travelift with a 35-tonne lift capacity as well as refuelling facilities.
