Listing #:1469885935


Location: Lot 2 DPS 514491, Papamoa, Tauranga, Bay Of Plenty
Property use: Horticultu­re
Land area: 12.01 hectares
Price: Asking price $2,600,000 + GST (if any)
Just a 10 minute flight from Tauranga or 30 minutes by boat, and you’re at magical Motiti Island, home to over 100 ha of avocado trees.

This 12 hectare block comprises about 5 ha of avos, 2 ha bare land and a 2 bedroom cottage for when you are out there, and the coastal ‘beer garden’, a magnificent spot on the edge of a cliff overlooking the breakwater where you view spectacular sunsets over Mount Maunganui and the mainland, and also Mayor Island.

What’s so special about these trees though, is that for the past two seasons the fruit has been the earliest to mature in N.Z. and were being harvested the first week of June, resulting in returns of $5,000 per bin, as opposed to about $1,600 mid-season.

The bins are loaded onto a neighbour’s barge and taken to the mainland, costing $1.84/crate last season, minimal when the first 423 crates sold at $300 each!

Motiti is also renown for fishing and diving yielding red snapper, kingfish, tuna, crayfish, scallops and paua, and of course forms one corner of an area of blue water famous for big game fishing.

With a light crop last year, the orchard gate return of $217,000 shows a good R.O.I. on the purchase price of $2M for the orchard plus bare land and buildings, a total of $2.6M + GST (if any).
