Formerly known as Asia Pacific Superyachts NZ we have reverted back to our parent company name Superyacht Support NZ to cover the Americas Cup.

Here at Superyacht Support NZ, our philosophy is to turn the impossible to possible. In everything we do, we aim to surpass expectations, using our passion and experience to provide unmatched superyacht support for visiting yachts and charter, building friendships on the way.

We are proud of the country we call home, and we want to show everyone who comes to our shores the very best New Zealand has to offer. We are able to create bespoke itineraries for visiting yachts and charter, showcasing Aotearoa’s epic scenery, adrenaline-filled activities, unique attractions and excellent food and wine. As members of NZ Tourism and Maori Tourism, we can also offer visitors a unique insight into our rich culture, organising exclusive cultural excursions. As charter experts for New Zealand, we are just as happy taking care of logistics as we are putting together show-stopping itineraries. Working with vessels, we ensure that they have their permits, and are benefiting from any appropriate tax exemptions.

Superyacht Support NZ is the aligned Yacht Agency with the country’s most prestigious yacht club, the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS), home of the America’s Cup.

With the America’s Cup coming to Auckland in 2021, Superyacht Support.NZ is proud to be the endorsed superyacht agent for the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. As a highlight in the yachting calendar, it is no surprise that we have been busy with a number of direct requests for berthage and anchorage from superyachts that will be visiting for the duration of the competition.

A number of these vessels are also using the opportunity to visit more of New Zealand and the Pacific, and we are delighted to be creating yet more show-stopping itineraries, incorporating not just the Cup, but also the numerous events in the run up, including the Prada Cup, the Classic and J Class Regatta, and a number of other 150th year anniversary celebrations from RNZYS. See the full major event list here.

If you are planning to visit this beautiful part of the world, speak to a friend at Superyacht Support.NZ.

We look forward to working with you!


The 2019 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show was a busy but highly rewarding event for Superyacht Support NZ. With all of the key industry players in attendance, from captains to brokers, owners to builders, it is always a great opportunity to network, reconnect with old friends, see the latest developments in the industry and plan the year ahead!

With Christmas coming, please feel free to pass us any unwanted stuff which we will deliver to Hospice NZ, Womens Refuge and Auckland City Mission for homeless people. Please contact Michelle
