This is the Yachting World office and fuel wharf.
The Yachting World fuel wharf provides a full range of services for your yacht.
There is enough water alongside that you can come get your diesel fuel whenever it suits you. Our hours are:
- 08:00 and 12:00, and 13:30 to 17:00 during the week
- 08:00 to 12:00 on Saturday.
- We are closed on Sunday and public holidays.
When you come alongside for fuel, we will help you tie up and assist you with fueling. We rigorously inspect the fuel and keep our filters clean so you will be assured of clean fuel with no sediment, rust or water.
The fuel nozzel will fit into the standard sized yacht deck fitting - you won't be left wondering how to stick a 50-mm diameter nozzel into a 25-mm hole or have to fiddle with funnels and take forever to fill up. Just put it in, pump what you need, and that's that.
We also have oil, grease, and other products you might require.
Fresh water is available and you can fill up your tanks with town water. It is good water, but a bit hard. If you are using our mooring or marina facilities there is no charge for water but we do charge a small fee for other yachts to fill up their tanks.
If your mast exceeds 27 metres you won't be able to get to our fuel wharf. Yachts with masts over 23 metres must stay in the main channel to be sure the mast does not hit the wires.
If your mast does exceed 27 metres Yachting World will assist you in getting the best possible fuel price and our staff will make all the arrangements for a fuel truck to meet you at the Star Wharf. The Harbour Master will charge a fee for the use of the commercial wharf. Fuel trucks may not deliver directly to yachts at our fuel wharf.
You can buy fuel duty free and save lots of money. When you are clearing out, tell the customs officer that you would like to buy duty free diesel fuel from Yachting World. He will give you the necessary forms. Bring the forms to us when you are finished clearing out and we will fill up your tanks duty free. And that's a real savings.
