Slow Boat Records is Wellington, New Zealand’s longest running independent record store, and is currently in its' 23rd year. We pride ourselves on preserving the old fashioned values of the traditional 'Mom & Pop', indie record shop. Situated at 183 Cuba Street in the vibrant and eclectic Te Aro area of the capitol’s downtown CBD, it has long been a favourite of the discerning music fan (as well as the odd celeb - The Beastie Boys, Radiohead, Oasis, Derrick Carter, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Chris Isaak have all shopped with us, and Evan Dando seems to make us his first port of call!), with a wide array of CD’s, vinyl LP’s, 78’s and 45’s, tapes, videos, posters, and DVD’s. Our staff are all music fans who collectively possess a vast knowledge of all types of music - from rock’n’roll, pop, blues, metal and soul, to indie, reggae, jazz, world music, NZ music and everything between and beyond - if you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, Slow Boat should be your first port of call. Slow Boat Records - music with a passion!
