Location: Pakuranga, Auckland.
Reports to: Director

This is a full-time, permanent position, available now.

The Company:

Auckland Marine Centre in Pakuranga is home to a huge range of boats, from modest tinnies to large seven figure launches, both new and used.

The team is seeking an experienced and capable sales person, ideally with a good understanding of marine parts and accessories that comprise the overall boat ‘package’.   

Whilst preferred, we do not necessarily require someone with marine sales experience but a proven track record in sales, founded upon formal sales training, is essential.

Knowledge of boats and accessories considered essential and an interest in fishing preferred.


Main Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Dealing with customers face-to-face in the showroom, on the phone and in timely response to internet enquiries received via the company web site
  • Following up all sales enquiries, however received
  • Conducting demonstrations and sea trials with customers (and the trade press, as appropriate)
  • Customer contact and communication, including representation at boat shows
  • Managing the boat sale process all the way through, from first contact to hand-over to the customer, which may include training and familiarisation, followed by after-sales support as requested
  • Creating sales listings for new and used boat packages for publication on the company web site and for use in advertising and marketing activities
  • Liaison with the work shop team to schedule work as required for PDI, service, repair, etc.


Qualifications and Experience sought:

  • A proven track record in Sales, able to demonstrate a structured selling process and approach
  • An active boating background (if not already working in the marine sector)
  • Experienced in trailing, launch and recovery of boats
  • Ideally a foundation marine qualification, such as Day Skipper or Boat Master to ensure competence and confidence on the water
  • Effective computer skills in all Microsoft Office desktop programs


Personal Attributes and Qualities sought:

  • A tangible appetite to deliver  excellent  results
  • Great team working and time management skills
  • Strong focus on details and solid administration skills
  • Personable manner and clean and tidy appearance
  • Excellent interpersonal skills with English as a first language



  • Remuneration will be a blend of base retainer and commission, to be negotiated to recognise and reward your track record and potential to deliver profitable results. 
  • Fully expensed company ute, phone, etc.
  • Working Hours: the showroom opens every day.  The current roster means that you work 10 days out of every 14, with alternate weekends off.
  • Normal showroom hours are Mon-Fri: 08:00 -17:00, Sat: (08:30 – 15:30) and Sun: (10:00 – 14:00).
  • In common with any such role, some flexibility will be necessary to accommodate client needs, attendance at events, and so on.

Candidates must already have NZ Permanent Residency or a valid NZ Work Visa to be considered for this position.
