About Us


The PCSRT was set up after the Maraetai Beach Boating Club withdrew from sea rescue services in 2001.

The Trust continued operating the rescue service and established Coastguard Maraetai in 2004 and still supports Coastguard Maraetai and provides the boatshed which houses the rescue vessel DRV Maraetai Rescue 1.

They also provide the Rowan Muir Community Centre which is a training venue for Coastguard crews and the general public and provides boating and open water safety education on the Pohutukawa Coast.

In conjunction with Coastguard Boating Education, PCSRT conducts Marine VHF Radio One Day courses along with Day Skippers courses.

Planning is underway to conduct a larger variety of courses again in conjunction with Coastguard Boating Education. It is anticipated that these courses would be held more frequently depending on demand.
