Superyachts arriving in the South Pacific this season have expressed keen interest in the unique cruising waters of Australia. Superyacht Australia is responding to the requests by providing information and networking sessions in Tahiti with key stakeholders from the Australian industry on Friday 28 June.

Invitations to the networking and information event will be extended to all superyacht captains, owners and crew who will be in the South Pacific over this period.

This exclusive opportunity to network and promote Australia’s unique surroundings has attracted a high level of industry support. This support is evidenced by the sponsors of the Tahiti Networking Event which includes Superyacht Australian the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX), AWL Grip, Cairns Marlin Marina, Cairns Ship Repair and Ancillary Services, City of Melbourne, Marine Engineering Consultants, MTU Detroit Diesel, Rivergate Marina and Shipyard, Superyacht Solutions and Sydney City Marine.

All of Australia’s key regional superyacht clusters will be present including Superyacht Great Barrier Reef, Marine WA, NSW Superyacht Industry Association and Superyachts Queensland.

According to Superyacht Australia CEO, MaryAnne Edwards 'Tahiti is seen as the gateway into the South Pacific and is a unique cruising destination for the global superyacht fleet.

'What we are seeing is that the superyachts cruise or charter in this area and then head to Australia for their routine maintenance and refit requirements. Australia has a reputation for quality work, meeting budgets and delivering on time. We have the expertise, capability and reputation for delivering to the owners and captains requirements.

'We see this event as an excellent way to ensure the superyachts in the South Pacific are fully informed about Australia’s excellent cruising grounds, iconic events and high quality facilities for superyachts.'

All activities will be held on the Marina Taina. The day will commence with Information Sessions (9.30am-11.30am) followed by a Crew Barbeque Competition from 4-5pm and the day will conclude with the Australian industry hosting an Australian-themed networking event.
