The New Zealand Superyacht Group (NZSG) held its first AGM on Tuesday 1 December, at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron.
Our first AGM was sponsored Gull New Zealand and we thank them for the support.
“We are pleased with the openness of the new group and we look forward to more of the industry getting involved. Our motivation for joining the group is to be working closer with a raft of people from across industries and telling more people about our unique ability to bunker vessels fast and efficiently with the convenience factor of truck delivery alongside” said Commercial Manager Ulrik Olsen Gull NZ Ltd
With New Zealand and the Pacific now attracting high numbers of superyachts, the New Zealand Superyacht Group started as a collaborative effort to bring together New Zealand superyacht suppliers, to focus on the very specific needs of the industry.
With the group and its members noting limited official data regarding the arrival and departure of superyachts in New Zealand, it has worked with New Zealand Customs to update the craft type list to include ‘superyacht sail’ and ‘superyacht motor’. This latest development means departure and arrival data will be made available to all parties, ensuring the group can provide a real-time proactive service to the industry.
With stand up introductions of each member and their companies, target action plan discussion and a Beer Tasting by Keith, Brewer for Boundary Road to cap off the night.
The New Zealand Superyacht Group board members voted in are: Ulrik Olsen – Gull NZ, Ned Wood – Manson Anchors, David Chalmers – IMED, Duthie Lidgard – Asia Pacific Superyachts NZ, Gregg Kelly – Fastmount, Frank Moor – Holton Marine and Kerry Greene – Maritime Events.
