People and organisations
to come out of the superyacht industry. thank you.


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.



Widely respected within the international superyacht industry, the Burgess name needs no introduction. Burgess was built on a love of yachting. Founded in 1975 by Nigel Burgess, renowned sailor and worldwide single-handed ocean racer, Burgess is a world-leading superyacht brokerage house with a wide network, specialist team and expert knowledge. We are so proud to have such a hugely successful company putting their confidence and financial support behind THE SUPERYACHT GATHERING. Thank you Jonathan and team.

Event Supporter

An endorsement from the Commodore, the Rear-Commodore and the General Manager of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron meant that we are able to join the Commodore for breakfast 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.

We have agreed to share calendar dates and information about each and all the yachting events going on around Auckland city and beyond.

What can we say, Asia Pacific Superyachts - New Zealand were the first company outside of Yachting Developments to put their hands up and say they thought it was a great idea and were going to support THE SUPERYACHT GATHERING. Without sponsors the event wouldn’t go ahead and we are very proud to be including this team on our journey. Duthie and his team provide top-class support for our visiting superyachts, making sure they leave loving New Zealand like we do.

Superyachts and helicopters go hand in hand and travelling by helicopter is one of the best ways to appreciate New Zealand’s incredible beauty. Sofia and John Ambler believe in creating specialised unique, tailored excursions where anything’s possible. Commitment to quality with a personal touch. Thank you Heletranz for helping The Superyacht Gathering to soar.

The team at For The Better Good share our vision of a better world and is working with us to realise our dream of a low-impact, sustainability-focused event. Watch out for their plastic-free bottles - made entirely of plants. No plastic? Entirely compostable? Yep, that’s right, and how cool is that? Thanks Jayden and Tane. You guys are forward-thinking change-makers.
