About New Zealand
As the cruising grounds of the South Pacific become increasingly popular, Superyacht Captains are increasingly realizing the benefits of building New Zealand into their cruising plans. The country itself offers stunningly magnificent scenic cruising; and the city of Auckland (North Island) is well recognized as a key refit and repair centre with many professional service companies coming highly recommended by the professional Captains of numerous yachts cruising worldwide - for their ability and efficiency to supply a full range of Superyacht services. Since the transformation of Auckland’s harbor in preparation for the 2003 America's Cup a dedicated Superyacht marina as well as further berthing for Superyachts and an impressive range of yachting support services have become conveniently grouped in the Westhaven harbor district, right in the heart of the city. As well as the two Superyacht refit yards in the city, the port of Whangarei to the north of Auckland is also seeing an increase of business from Superyachts choosing to carry out repairs and refits in New Zealand. At both locations some highly rated management companies are on hand to oversee a yacht from new build or complete refit and repair to re-commissioning. Throughout a yacht’s stay in New Zealand, a choice of highly recommended yacht service agents are on hand to take care of all the Captains needs, from crew accommodation, activities and travel arrangements, to interior fine detailing and provisioning and… once underway, the majority can also supply a full range of owners and guest services - not just around New Zealand - but throughout the islands of the South Pacific.
