Fiji / NZ Marine Trade Day

The recent win of the America’s Cup promises significant gains for the wider South Pacific.
New Zealand wins America’s Cup – catalyst for South Pacific tourism and Superyachting.
“The America’s Cup win will be a big benefit to New Zealand boating industry and the wider South Pacific region. During the 2000 defence Auckland hosted 95 superyachts and we would expect this number to exceed 120 for the next event. As many of these vessels will arrive via Fiji or Tahiti, there will be economic gain for each country.
During the lead up we also expect to see more cruising craft, superyachts and charter companies focusing on the South Pacific as a cruising destination.” says Peter Busfield, executive director of NZ Marine.
