Drive your dream with Bowater Honda

Bowater Honda

Over the years we have come to realise there is more to the motor industry than just selling cars. The foundations of Bowater Honda were established in Nelson in 1972, since then a lot has changed within the motoring industry, and with vehicles in general, but we have consistently remained true to our core principles, and the principles that all Honda's are built on. Reliability. Safety. Care for the environment. We also care about our name and that's why we do it better. Like Honda we care about the future, but we are fixed firmly in the present.

Our new normal, COVID-19 and making sure that you are safe.

These are strange times and it can feel anything but normal but the team here at Bowater Honda are committed to making sure it all feels business as usual when it comes to taking care of your motoring needs. 

The COVID-19 situation has certainly thrown us all a curve ball and created the now all too familiar NEW NORMAL. We are committed to a high level of vigilance around hygiene and making sure every interaction we have is not adding to anyone’s risk, either yours or ours.

Jenni Richardson

We are ready to help with all of your vehicle requirements, our service department is fully open and can help with WOF’s, rego’s and making sure your vehicle is in tip top shape for winter. With no overseas travel on the horizon it maybe the perfect time to upgrade and treat yourself to something a little special that you will appreciate each and every day. Come and see us and discover the power of dreams.

Bowater Honda has settled into a large, modern space in the Wakatu Carpark - close to the western entrance off Rutherford Street.

The showroom has been built to best showcase the exciting range that Honda offers, and also to provide our customers with easier parking and convenience as the showroom is centrally located and close to popular services such as the Nelson City Council building, the Public Library and upper Trafalgar Street. Being located in a carpark means that there is a whole carpark's worth of parking, as well as several client carparks right outside.

We are looking forward to seeing you, come and enjoy a coffee and cake with us.
