Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron offers some of the best views in Auckland, and has been a landmark for the city for 150 years.

More information

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron is situated in a prime sea-front location at the foot of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. The Squadron is served by a spacious and multi-functional building offering seven versatile function rooms, each with plenty of natural light. As could be expected, the Squadron building is steeped in history, reflected in the artwork and sculptures placed around the venue – including the incredible America’s Cup, currently on display overlooking the ballroom.

The rooms are designed to make the most of the stunning location – with large windows showcasing elevated 360 degree views and outlooks, including Westhaven Marina, Auckland Harbour Bridge, Waitemata Harbour, Auckland City and the Sky Tower.

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron offers excellent food and beverage facilities coupled with the friendly hospitality and high service standards you would expect from a club of its stature.

From meetings for 2 people, to Gala dinners for 250 guests, or cocktails for 500, the RNZYS can cater for all of your event needs.
