Luxury New Zealand Estates Install Docks

Nestled in New Zealand’s stunning Bay of Islands, Omarino is a world-class luxury residential development. With a mere 17 sites within its 350 pristine acres, each estate features a private boathouse. But for community gatherings, they all tie up at the clubhouse’s new state-of-the-art floating concrete dock array from industry leader SF Marina.

Local New Zealand-based Heron Construction Company installed the Omarino dock array. Anchored with 12 piles, the L-shaped layout consists of a main 50m x 3.3m walkway that extends perpendicular to the shore. On the terminus is a large 25m x 3.3m finger with three smaller 11.2m x 1.4m finger docks in between. A longer 18m finger is located 16.2m from the end, with two 54cm piles between to accommodate large yachts. The freeboard on the fingers is 58cm to assist with boarding.

SF Marina dock pontoons are virtually unsinkable and provide exceptional stability, even in rough water. The cast concrete provides a clean aesthetic. Hidden utility troughs to hide power and water supplies also help accentuate the breathtaking Kiwi coastal landscape.

Located 3.5 hours northwest of Auckland — or 45 minutes by helicopter — Omarino carefully positions its estate homes for maximum privacy and extraordinary scenic views. Its website is
