HMNZS Wakakura was commissioned on 26 Mar 1985 for the Royal New Zealand Naval Volunteer Reserve (RNZNVR), based at Wellington and used for conducting basic seamanship and navigation training and also supported many Naval and Defence Force exercises. Wakakura also took part in multi agency government work including fishery patrols and search and rescue operations. In 1994 she was modified to conduct mine countermeasures route surveying using side scan sonar. This was also used to assist in search and rescue and transport investigations. In 2005 Wakakura reverted to the RNZN to provide basic sea training at Auckland. In 2007 sold to the Wellington company SeaWorks as a patrol vessel for the Cook Strait power cable - to keep fishing vessels and other craft from working their fishing gear or anchoring over the power cable.
