The Motueka Power Boat Club is a Community group that was established back in the 1950's, initially in Kaiteriteri to encourage safe boating and the promotion of all aquatic activities. Subsequently it was recognized that a recreational boat ramp was needed at Motueka and the original boat ramp across from Jackett Island was built by the Club, which remains today to service the Jackett Island Community, along with power and water utilities. It was quickly realized that the boat ramp to service the community would be better place in an area less subject to such hazardous currents -- hence the move to establish a far more safer boat ramp located where it sits today.
The entirety of this development was completed by the Motueka Power Boat Club members, using local volunteers and the support of local businesses. What was originally merely unusable mudflats has been reclaimed and developed into a community facility that allows recreational boaties to venture out onto the water safely and provides the local community with an area where the marina can be enjoyed by all.
We are where we are today thanks to a group of proactive locals having the foresight to develop a facility that provides safe boating access to the community and generates sufficient funds to service the existing marina and ongoing extension of our marina ensuring safe boating is available to all.
Our monthly Committee meetings are held the last Thursday of each month and our Annual General Meeting is held in August of each year. We welcome members to attend any of these meetings.
