Our purpose is to introduce and support families enjoy their boating experience effortlessly and smoothly.
We endeavour to take all the hassle out of buying or selling your boat; of maintaining your outboard or sterndrive engine, your boat trailer, hull and marine accessories. Over the 38 years we have been in business, we have come to know many customers who we now consider friends. We look forward to seeing them each visit - and continuing our boating friendship connection.
We are always looking for ways we can add to their leisure enjoyment and quality recreational time on the water..
If there is a service you would like us to supply or product you would us to investigate or buy for you - we would be keen to know.
If you have something you would like to say about the servicing and sales support at Lakeland Marine, we would care to know.

Can't thank Lakeland Marine enough for their help today. A few issues with one of our race boats in Taupo today and thanks to Lakeland Marine for the use of their diagnostic tools to allow us to find the issue.

One friend who has been a loyal customer throughout our years in business, wrote:
"Our family boating experience and enjoyment spans over 40 years on Lake Taupo.
During that time I have purchased and traded 4 boats from Lakeland Marine.
I have looked for top of the range boat brands in immaculate condition. Performance, comfort and safety pre-requisites essential for family boating.
Their boating knowledge, advice and technical support from the service department gave me confidence to become a repeat customer.
After sales service has made me feel a connected part of the Lakeland Marine team."
A new customer who bought his first boat from us last summer wrote:
"Many thanks to the Lakeland Marine team, whose attention to detail gave me exactly the boat and trailer I wanted. Your expert advice and knowledge made the whole process of purchasing my first powerboat easy, friendly and enjoyable. I couldn’t be more pleased with my Bayliner 175."
A customer who bought a boat from us this summer:
Received your follow-up letter yesterday and to date have managed to get out on the harbour 4 times. Really happy with the Bayliner 195. It was quite exciting to start it up the very first time. Sounded like a muscle car. Everyone found it hilarious. We are booked next summer for 2 weeks in January at Kinloch. Will definitely call in to say hello and probably a service. With saying that. We will pop by and say hello anytime we are in Taupo.

“ I enjoy coming into your showroom and looking at all your lovely boats. They are all so immaculately presented. Your service department is a great asset to your business.”
Bayliner 1702 Capri boat owner for 18 years
"I've had my 40th Anniversary 1702 Capri LS since 1996 and it is as good as the day I bought it. The boat's safety features were an important consideration when we went to buy the boat. It's sheer stability impressed us. When you move around on the boat, it doesnt move from side to side and it's unsinkable. Have looked after our 1702 and never had any trouble with the 120hp motor. I checked out the resale price recently and was surprised how the boat had held it's value.
. " Our family of 3 sons used the boat for skiing, fishing and day cruising on Lake Taupo. Today the family have grown up and it is now my turn to fully use it, but the boys are allowed to take it out themselves. We tow the boat to the Rotorua lakes and found it is a very good trailer boat."
I had my Mercury 90hp serviced after purchasing a new boat and purchased a 5hp 4 stroke aux. I found Neil, their mechanic to be most helpful, honest and reliable. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Positive FEEDBACK on Trademe sales count too. An example from last weeks posts.
"Awesome trader, utterly professional and going beyond their obligations. Highly recommended, a trader you can trust! "
