The APSA Grand Tour will visit Oceania and the Pacific on 12 January 2021, with an introduction by Nigel Beatty (APSA) and David Good (Superyacht Australia) together with regional expert panelists Mark Wightman (Integrated Marine), Angela Pennefather (Melanesian Luxury Yachts) and Trenton Gay (Gold Coast City Marina and Shipyard) to explore the Oceania and Pacific region.

APSA has members in Australia, New Zealand, Melanesia, Tahiti, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. The Pacific Ocean is a vast cruising area, and local knowledge is key to making the most out of any yacht’s visit to the region. Besides great cruising opportunities, Australia, and New Zealand also offer specialised shipyard services, as well as technical and professional expertise, making these countries a centre of excellence for refit or maintenance stopovers.

The second session (Tuesday 19 January 2021) will be introduced by Joe Yuen (APSA) and Colin Dawson (Expat Marine), with panelists Mike Simpson (Simpson Marine), Nigel Beatty (SYL Japan) and Capt. Paul Brackley (Central Yacht) exploring the East Asia region.

APSA has members in China (the Greater Bay Area and Hainan), Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan. With infinite opportunities to explore Japan, to cruise and charter in Hong Kong, or undertaking refits and maintenance in Taiwan, this region has a lot to offer superyachts whether it’s for cruising, maintenance or refits.

The third webinar (Tuesday 26 January) will shine the spotlight on South and Southeast Asia, with introductions by Nigel Beatty (APSA) and Richard Lofthouse (Catalano Shipping Services), and panelists Gordon Fernandes (Asia Pacific Superyachts), Andy Shorten (The Lighthouse Consultancy) and Scott Walker (NABS Engineering/APS).

APSA has members in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, India, and Sri Lanka. South and South East Asia provides diverse and adventurous cruising opportunities along with more charter opportunities. Service and refits are now also available as more superyachts are looking to spend more time in the region.
