New Zealand superyacht agency rated among world’s best

New Zealand superyacht agency rated among world’s best

A New Zealand company has been voted one of the best superyacht agencies in the world.

Auckland-based Asia Pacific Superyachts NZ was rated by captains as one of the top three superyacht agencies globally in a recent survey by The Superyacht Report. The company was praised for its “extremely personal service.”

Company owner, Jeanette Tobin, started the business 12 years ago, as a high-end concierge service and ship's agent for superyacht owners and their guests and crews.

“We are thrilled with this accolade as we strive to provide the best service and go the extra mile for all our clients,” Jeanette says.

“New Zealand is not only one of the best destinations in the world for cruising, it also has world-class food, wine and experiences you can’t find anywhere else.”

Jeanette recently arranged the visit of Russian-billionaire owned "A", the $350 million boat which arrived in Auckland in September last year. A's owner, Andrey Melnichenko, and his wife Aleksandra spent five weeks over summer visiting New Zealand.

Melnichenko’s $350 million yacht was one of 35 luxury vessels to visit in 2013, spending NZ$185 million on refits and repairs and NZ$95 million on tourism.

Other luxury vessels to visit Auckland last summer included the 290-foot Nahlin, owned by British inventor James Dyson, and the Ethereal owned by Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy. Alucia, owned by Ray Dalio, the billionaire founder of hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, spent four months in Auckland last year for a refit.
