Foundation Partner

When we came up with the idea of organising a superyacht event such as The Superyacht Gathering, our first stop was to Yachting Developments where owners Ian and Blanche Cook listened to our spiel and offered valuable feedback and advice. They then offered us the seed money to launch our project and for that we are incredibly grateful. Ian and Blanche, you are Legends.

Yachting Developments is one of the NZ marine industry’s gems. With a passion for craftsmanship, a full service new build, refit and restoration offering, and a commitment to passing on artisanal boatbuilding skills to the next generation, they are the real deal.

An endorsement from the Commodore, the Rear-Commodore and the General Manager of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron means that we are able to join the Commodore for breakfast during The Superyacht Gathering and hear about what is happening at the Club and the surrounds in the lead up and including the year of the America’s Cup. Which also happens to be the 150th Birthday of the Squadron.

The RNZYS will work with us throughout each event, partnering and offering temporary memberships to all conference attendees, superyacht tender berthage and more.
