From the epicentre of Auckland’s historical working waterfront, the Wooden Boat Festival is free to attend and will acknowledge Aotearoa New Zealand’s incredible maritime heritage and the stories of Tamaki Makaurau. It’s a celebration for everyone and all lovers of wooden boats of all types.
The Auckland Wooden Boat Festival will feature a collection of 100 real-life, genuine work boats, yachts and launches. There will be something for everyone, including a wide range of activities, boat rides, sailing experiences, a film and a seminar program.
The Wooden Boat Festival is about Auckland’s history, about living the past in the today, and bringing people together. In conjunction with the Tātaki Auckland Unlimited (TAU), the Auckland classic yacht community, the National Maritime Museum and Eke Panuku the Auckland Wooden Boat Festival (AWBF) acknowledges the working waterfront of Auckland and our indigenous navigation heritage, the natural environment and sailing and boating as a sport and as a way of life.
The Auckland Wooden Boat Festival is part of Moana Auckland - New Zealand's Ocean Festival.
