With the weather finally warming up, many Kiwis are thinking about getting back on the boat and out on the water.
Last year, Coastguard brought 4,139 boaties home to safety – from new boaties to the saltiest sea dogs. No one expects to have an issue out on the water, but last year almost 70% of the 1,930 calls for help to the Coastguard were for mechanical or fuel related issues. It can happen to anyone!
Having a problem out there can be a real hassle, but with a Coastguard Membership you’ve got peace of mind every time you hit the water.
No matter if you break down, get a flat battery, or are out with the family when one of the kids gets sick, one of our rescue vessels crewed by our trained volunteers will turn up and do all they can to get you home in one piece, free of charge.
You also get great benefits such as great deals on tailored boating insurance and a 15% discount on our most popular Boating Education courses. New members also receive $100 off our popular Day Skipper course, which you can sit online or in a classroom.
