Under New Ownership

On the 1st of October, 2015, Leon and Michelle took over Bow to Stern Havelock, re-branding the company "Bow To Stern NZ".

Leon & Michelle spent 17 years in North Canterbury operating their own rural transport business & raising their two children; Renée & Jake.

Leon’s background is in the Transport and Boating industries, having grown up on the Hauraki Gulf and being strongly influenced by his grandfather who was director of a successful marine electronics company. Leon spent many hours with his grandfather installing marine electronics around the country and sailing on the Auckland Harbour.  Michelle has a background in the Arts and Hospitality and has been administrator for a number of organisations.

Leon & Michelle are excited about the new venture at Bow To Stern and look forward to collaborating with Giles who has bought the marine servicing part of the business.

Leon and Michelle’s vision for the future will see Bow To Stern play a supportive role in the local community, while expanding and developing all areas of the Chandlery, Valet, Brokerage, Fishing and Hunting sections of the business.

Leon and Michelle are looking forward to meeting all their new and existing customers and welcome you to their store at 75 Main Road, Havelock.
