Oborn’s Nautical opened in Christchurch in 1966. We have been offering top-of-the-line product and service solutions to the marine/sailing industry across Canterbury and New Zealand ever since. We specialise in custom boat fittings, masts, spars, rigging systems, wires, ropes and splicing. We have a full retail store and on-site workshop to cover all product and service needs.
With the combined world-wide experience and technology at UK Sailmakers, we can provide the most advanced sail designs, construction, cloth selection, and hardware for the durability and comfort of your boat together with any custom canvas work you may need. UK Sailmakers in Whangarei is solely owned by Phil Houghton.
