According to AIMEX/Superyacht Australia, the key objective of Dwyer's visit to Sydney is to provide companies in the Superyacht sector with a better understanding of the Asian Superyacht market and the opportunities that exist for Australia within this market.
'We believe we have the best infrastructure, experience, quality and reputation within the region and we need to better understand how we ensure our capability is promoted and understood by captains and owners within these cruising grounds,' said CEO, MaryAnne Edwards. 'The recent drop in the value of the Australian dollar is certainly making us more competitive and we are seeing more enquiries coming our way.'
Captain Charlie Dwyer resides in Thailand and has visited Australia several times. During his stay, he has seen first hand the infrastructure and refit/repair capability of Australian superyacht industry businesses.
'I am impressed by the initiatives now being driven by Superyacht Australia and have heard extremely positive comments regarding their recent networking event in Tahiti, they are certainly gaining a strong profile within the region.'
