Royal Huisman and SKYCITY throw their support behind The Superyacht Gathering, held 27 to 29 March 2019, coming on board as event sponsors.
“Having collaborated with Royal Huisman and other leading shipyards during my time as marketing manager at Alloy Yachts, I gained valuable friendships that have served me for many years," says Linda Berry, Managing Director and Co-Founder of The Superyacht Gathering. "My friends at Royal Huisman have long had New Zealand and the South Pacific on their radar and are committed to making the most of the event and their time in Auckland. The Superyacht Gathering will be a memorable event and an invaluable networking tool for both the audience and the Royal Huisman brand.”
“I have also worked with the team at SkyCity for many years and trust them explicitly to feed and cater to our guests in a manner that befits our KiwiLux vision for The Superyacht Gathering,” says Linda. “The Superyacht Gathering is blessed to have some close and trusting friends, borne from long relationships, joining our group and helping us to show the yachting world why New Zealand and the wider South Pacific are so special."
With a reputation for excellence, Royal Huisman is known throughout the superyacht industry for its craftsmanship and one-of-a-kind custom builds. New Zealand and the South Pacific regularly welcome Royal Huisman builds, including 58m Twizzle, which is currently undergoing refit work in Auckland ahead of the summer cruising season. Another Royal Huisman build, 34m Sassafras, will also be one of the competitors lining up in the upcoming Millennium Cup 2019.
In supporting The Superyacht Gathering SKYCITY is returning to the marine sector, having been one of the original supporters of the 2000 Millennium Cup.
