Lake Dunstan Boat Club

Building Hire

Yes our building is available for private hire. The Lake Dunstan Boat is located on the shores of Lake Dunstan with fantastic views of the mountains and lakes all around. Its an awesome place for your function, close to town (2minutes drive) but far enough out to give space and views and a feeling of being away from it all.

Income from these rentals is much needed to help cover the costs of land rental from LINZ, as well as power and insurance for the building. The club does not make a profit and if there is ever any surplus it goes back into much needed maintenance. Everything is done on a voluntary basis with club members giving up their time to look after the building and administer bookings etc. we hope you will enjoy using the building but please show respect and look after it. It is someones club that suffers if damage is done and hidden and not owned up to. We do try to ensure the building is looked after and will inspect before and after events.
