Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club
Imagine…sun-dazzled waters dotted with yachts as the background for your corporate event, the sea so close you can smell it or touch it from the decks off our meeting rooms.
Wellington’s premier yacht club was established in 1883. Sitting on the southern edge of Wellington Harbour in Oriental Bay, the Yacht Club has stunning panoramic views of the city-scape.
It is only a few minutes walk along the waterfront to the Wellington CBD, Te Papa National Museum and a number of nearby hotels.
Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club has three great event hire spaces to cater for any sized occasion.
Completely secluded on the water’s edge between the iconic boat sheds, this conference and social venue provides a place for people to feel distanced from day to day activities.
With its natural light and outdoor spaces, there is really no better place beside the water as a unique venue hire to entertain your guests.
All of the venue hire rooms have high-speed wifi and are fully air-conditioned.
They are also only 15 minutes drive from Wellington Airport.
The backdrop of the city centre and hills makes the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club a stunning space to host weddings, celebrations and events.
Coenes Restaurant is located within the Yacht Club is one of Wellington’s best eateries. It has views over the Wellington Harbour, and as well as lunch (and possibly dinner), you can also have post-meeting drinks in this most attractive space for either corporate events or socials occasions.
