  • Where an agent/principal incurs a cancelled call charge, Napier Port reserves the right to not accept future orders from that agent/principal if that account remains outstanding.

Security

Napier Port is subject to the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code. The Code identifies differing levels of security, with security to be maintained at Level 1 during normal operations. This includes security patrols to ensure the safety and security of Napier Port and the vessels and cargo within port boundaries. A vessel and facilities security fee of $237.00 is included in the Marine Service Charge to cover ISPS security requirements.

Levies

The security manning level required depends on the number of passengers and crew to be processed on re-entry to Napier Port. The cost of conforming to ISPS Code Level 1 security requirements is charged to the vessel.

Shuttle buses

Shuttle buses from the Napier Port entrance to Napier city are subject to separate arrangements. These can be organised at the following rate:

Shuttle bus to/from Napier City: $185.00 + GST per hour per bus.

Please note:

Gangways are available at the rate listed below, but it is assumed that the vessel will supply its own gangway.

Statutory holiday charges (see below) will apply where a cruise vessel arrives or departs on a statutory holiday.

Napier Port provides a reserved berth for cruise vessels to ensure they have guaranteed berth access ahead of any other potential port user. In the event of any cruise vessel cancelling its Napier call within 36 hours of its ETA, the call will be billed at 50% of the tariff rate.

Conditions: Fishing Vessels and Pleasure Craft

In order for a vessel to berth at Napier Port, the following conditions must be adhered to. An application for berthage signifies that the vessel owner/s or charterer agrees with the conditions and will abide by them at all times.

  • Napier Port will utilise 3 Wharf only for the berthage of fishing vessels. Short term layups are only by prior arrangement and upon application to Napier Port. Two berths may be available on 3 West for short term layups, while 3 East will be allocated for vessel discharge, loading or bunkering only. Cement tankers, cargo and tallow vessels have priority on this berth. Any non-working vessel on this wharf will be charged a penalty per day or part thereof.
  • Pre-advice of vessel visit containing ETA, ETD, crew list and estimated draft must be made to marinegroup@napierport.co.nz 48 hours before vessel arrival. Notification will be returned as to whether the vessel visit can be accommodated with cargo shipping. There is no guarantee of berthage. No berthage will be offered to vessels with less than 2.4m draft.
  • Changes in vessel ETA and ETD are to be communicated to marinegroup@napierport.co.nz at 12 hours and six hours prior to berthing. If a change of greater than six hours is not communicated to Napier Port, berthage may be cancelled due to other shipping movements.
  • Contact must be made with Napier Harbour Control VHF on channel 12 or 16 two hours prior to arriving at the pilot station and before entering or leaving the port.
  • Included in above-mentioned rates is water (self-serve only using own stand pipe and hose). Stand pipes can be purchased from the engineering workshop or N & J Price Engineering.
  • Pilotage is compulsory for vessels over 40 metres (see Hawke’s Bay Regional Council bylaw). Applications can be made for a discount on the first day’s tariff if the Master obtains a Napier Port Pilotage Exemption.
  • Where Napier Port staff and equipment are required to provide water, a water connection fee of $75.00 will apply.
  • Vessels are expected to provide their own power connection and connection adaptors. Connection adaptors can be purchased from Napier Port at a cost of $275.00 if necessary.
  • Where Napier Port shorelines are required for berthing, a fee of $350.00 will be applicable.
  • Garbage bins are available as per the fee listed under ‘Additional Services’ in Marine Charges. Napier Port requires that engine room rags, filters etc are kept separate from foodstuffs for easy disposal. Clean waste engine oil can be disposed of at the engineering workshop for a fee.
  • The lay-up rate of three times the current daily rate will be applied to vessels after 14 days’ continuous berthage.
  • Charges are per 24-hour period or part thereof.
  • Vessels must comply when requested to shift in order to accommodate a larger cargo vessel. Due to the changing nature of shipping, the vessel must shift a minimum of four hours from the latest ETA of the larger vessel, or within one hour of being notified of the shift, when within four hours of the ETA.
  • Vessels are to be either constantly manned, or remain in phone contact with Napier Port Security and be capable of being moved within one hour of notification.
  • If an unmanned vessel has to be shifted and the vessel has failed to move within the specified time frame despite contact with the person responsible, or no contact can be made with the person responsible for the vessel, it will be shifted by Napier Port and a fee of $1000 plus tug hire will be charged to the customer.
  • Napier Port will not be liable for reconnection to shore power and therefore potential loss of product onboard if an unmanned vessel is shifted for a larger cargo vessel with berth priority. Napier Port will also not be liable for any damage to the vessel that may occur during the shift.
  • Vessels must comply when requested to shift in order to accommodate larger cargo vessels. If a Napier Port pilot is required to move a vessel, a pilotage fee of $3,240.00 will be incurred.
  • Napier Port reserves the right to refuse berthage and/or other services in order to secure payment of overdue/outstanding port charges.
  • All fishing vessels are responsible for cleaning the wharf after use. No evidence of cargo discharge or other products is to be left on the wharf. Wharf cleaning must not consist of hosing solid material discharge from the wharf into the harbour. If the wharf has not been cleaned to the appropriate standard, Napier Port will arrange cleaning to be carried out at the fishing vessel’s expense.
  • Seven (7) day payment terms following invoicing and only to approved fishing vessel and pleasure craft customers.
  • For new fishing vessel customers or vessels that have previously breached the above conditions, Napier Port will require payment of a good behaviour bond of $5,000 prior to berthage. The bond shall be retained if breaches occur, or paid back in full if all above conditions are ahered to. Such breaches include but are not limited to health and safety incidents, security/police incidents, work undertalen on wharf without permission, environmental damage and damage to Napier Port property.
  • All charges exclude GST.
