Our History

Boat Builders for over 30 years...

Southern Ocean's Boat Building team is based in Tauranga, New Zealand. Just 144 nautical miles from Auckland, Tauranga is a beautiful harbourside town with a large sheltered marina.

We have been building luxury leisure boats, international race boats and superyachts from here in Tauranga for over 30 years. From design and build of a 100-ft superyacht, to building and re-fitting international race yachts, to a custom-built sailboat for Baron Von Rothschild, we've done it all. 

We employ a talented team of boat builders - specialists craftsmen who we have sent all over the world, in-demand for their painting and fairing prowess. We offer a wide variety of shipwright services, including:

  • Boat Design and Drafting
  • Complete Boat Builds
  • Boat Restoration
  • Electrical Services, Engineering and Systems
  • Joinery, Laminating, Fairing
  • Boat Painting and Polishing
  • Extensive Boat Re-Fits
  • Preventative Maintenance

At the helm of Southern Ocean Boats are co-directors (and master shipwrights) Greg McNabb and Greg Prescott. Together with our dedicated team of boat builders, we offer a wealth of experience and skill that will exceed your expectations.
