New look

The Auckland On Water Boat Show 2019 drew to close with exhibitors reporting strong sales, while visitors enjoyed the new marina position in the heart of the Viaduct Harbour.

Let there be light

You might think a car like the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera would be in its element on the unrestricted German Autobahn, but it’s on the narrow Austrian B-roads that Damien Reid discovers this turbo-charged machine’s real super power.

Value proposition

D’Albora Marine, part of Australia’s leading marina services group, is significantly expanding its scope, teaming up with Azimut, the epitome of Italian flair and one of the world’s great boatbuilders. CEO of D’Albora Marine, Matt Walford, outlines how the changes to its specialist services will benefit new and existing customers.

Western force

Westport’s range of extremely seaworthy, superbly finished superyachts from 34 to 50 metres are a testament to the skills honed during the US builder’s 50-year history. Newly appointed Australian dealer Tomas Gasperak believes the brand’s pedigree based on the ship-building traditions of the Pacific Northwest will be equally appreciated in southern yachting markets.
