Interesting Vessels

The Bridge Marina Travelift Company also sees a number of overseas cruising yachts including off-shore racing boats calling in for antifouling and other maintenance work.  Tauranga is fortunate with the number of professional marine service organisations including boat builders, marine engineers, marine electricians, surveyors and marine painters that offer competitively priced services to visiting and local boaties.
