Whanganui Port’s No 1 Wharf is the home to Coastal Bulk Shipping’s M.V. Anatoki, and is the primary commercial wharf capable of taking heavy vehicles. The M.V. Anatoki carries bulk cargoes such as grain, fertiliser and gravel around New Zealand.
Currently, the No 2 Wharf is used for small boat berths, while the No 3 Wharf is suited to non-commercial activities. Both Wharfs 2 and 3 are undergoing significant remedial work as part of Te Pūwaha: the Whanganui Port revitalisation project.
Three warehouse buildings at the port are also available, with storage capacity of up to 4386 square metres.
The Wharf Street boat ramp and trailer park is located next to the port, where on a good day more than 150 recreational boats can launch in pursuit of one of the best selections of table fish found in New Zealand.
Upgrades to the Whanganui Port will build a platform for unlocking further investment and new businesses to Whanganui, attract and retain high value jobs in the marine, engineering and coastal freight sectors, while also ensuring further resilience in our nation’s supply chain.
What’s more, operational facilities and a mobile boat hoist with 380-tonne lift capacity will enable Q-West, New Zealand’s pre-eminent boat builders, to build and maintain world class vessels, all from Whanganui.
While the revitalisation of the Whanganui Port will play an important role in the sustainable economic growth of Whanganui, perhaps more important is the impact it will have on creating abundance for Mouri Awa (our awa), Mouri Ora (the environment) and Mouri Tangata (the communities) of Te Awa Tupua.
