A TVNZ reporter gave the new Okara Marina being built in Northland, some great nationwide exposure on Waitangi Day.

The film crew from top rating prime time evening news show, Seven Sharp, enjoyed spending a day in the marina chatting to the foreign sailors onboard their luxurious yachts.

It is this same vibrant energy in the Town Basin marina which the sailors expressed that the new Okara marina aims to encompass.

Praise for the variety of Marine Trades available was also received. Hear their stories told on Seven Sharp.

On water and shore side visitors to Whangarei’s unique Town Basin are loving the new built park, restaurants, the arts, regular events, playgrounds, bush walks, swimming pool and shopping surrounding the marina.
