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.
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.
A yacht is a hugely valuable asset, and Pantaenius make it their business to provide the best possible insurance cover, leaving owners to get on with enjoying their vessel. The company has offices around the world, including its Australian office which opened in 2012. Personable, custom expert advice is the Pantaenius way. Michaela and Jamie, thanks for joining us.
For Lloyd Stevenson their goal is simple: to build the finest custom boats around. Headed up by Lloyd and Tracey Stevenson, the Kiwi yard has a vast portfolio of yachts to its name and has been building unique sailing and motoryachts since the 1980s. Recent projects include a number of custom superyacht tenders, all built by the yard’s team of craftsmen and women. Lloyd and Tracey, you are legends, thanks for your support.
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.
