A Lyttelton man faces trials in Christchurch, Wellington and Picton after a series of boat burglaries.

Sean Patrick Clark, 42, maintained his not-guilty pleas at a case review hearing in the Christchurch District Court today, and the judge had to make remands for three defended hearings.

The convention is that trials are held in the centres where offences are alleged to have occurred.

Clark will be sent to Wellington for a case review hearing on September 25, to Blenheim for a case review on different charges on October 6 and back to Christchurch for a judge-alone trial on November 17.

Clark will face four charges in Wellington, nine in Blenheim and four in Christchurch.

Several relate to burglaries of boats in the Picton and Waikawa Bay marinas.

Clark denies nine charges of burglary, three of receiving stolen goods, two of theft, theft of a car, possession of tools for burglary and unlawful possession of a firearm.

He has been in custody since his arrest in June.
