Te Ana will encompass an upgraded marina as well as a promenade and eventually, eateries, shops and workplaces, with the aim of “opening up Lyttelton’s harbourside as a place where people can connect and enjoy the waterfront”.

Te Ana will feature Christchurch’s only floating berth marina, complete with walk on access.

On completion, up to 170 floating berths with lengths of 10-metres or more will provide shelter for yachts and powerboats up to 30-metres.

All berths will be supplied with water and power services and supported landside with carparks, lighting, security, a new marina office and washroom facilities.

Work on the new berths will begin in June 2017 and are scheduled to be completed by April next year.


Initial work will involve removing the existing inner harbour pile moorings and building 170 berths across three piers. The first berths will be available by November this year.

Parking, a marina office, washrooms and other facilities will be completed throughout 2017 and early 2018.

More than 170 people have already registered an interest in licensing a berth at the Te Ana marina, according to Lyttelton Port of Christchurch which owns and manages the berths.
