The story behind Auckland's most popular private charter hire.
Behind Auckland’s best private charter hire is a family whose passion for entertaining provoked an impromptu purchase in 2019. While searching for an Auckland Harbour pontoon the family stumbled across a listing for a popular private charter hire business. Needless to say they jumped at the opportunity.
For owner Mal, the business encompassed his families love of cocktails, water sports, fishing trips, fine dining, karaoke and dancing. The idea that he could package these facilities and offer a fantastic venue for Auckland events was a dream come true.
It was without hesitation that the party boat would be run as a family business. The operational management is overseen by Mal’s daughter Robyn. Who passion for engaging with customers and networking has only been enhanced since the business was purchased. Robyn is also the resident photographer, having previously owned a portrait and wedding package photography business.
Then came the name. What do you call a party boat in Auckland? For the fun loving family, it was simple. With inspiration taken from Mal’s favorite pastimes of sailing the ocean and getting his groove on. The name Ocean Groove Cruises fell into place. Now they can’t wait to share their love of dancing and entertaining all while cruising the beautiful Auckland harbour with their guests.
Now based in Westhaven Marina, West of Auckland’s Central Business District. The business offers party cruises and private charter hire for an array of private functions. Including, wedding cruises, birthday parties, stag parties, hen parties and corporate events.
