This is the Rewa Hulk, sunk for break water off Moturekareka Island, Hauraki Gulf. The steel Barque "Rewa" which was sunk off Moturekareka Island near Kawau to form a breakwater around the year 1930 was at 3000 ton the biggest four-masted barque afloat in her day.

See http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~rupert/DCP_1813r.jpg for a view from the water.
