An evolution of the previous Yacht Vision superyacht conferences held in New Zealand the inaugural edition of The Superyacht Gathering will be held from 27 to 29 March 2019 and will run again in 2020, 2021 (America’s Cup year) and beyond.

Held in Auckland, New Zealand, The Superyacht Gathering will be three days of experiences, camaraderie and sharing of knowledge hosted by some of the superyacht industry’s most passionate people.

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit some of the many superyachts in the Viaduct and enjoy the best of local wine, food and music at a relaxed welcome event at the Captains lounge at the Orams yard.

Wake up invigorated on day two ready for the immersive symposium day of storytelling. The event will wrap up on day three with a Commodores Breakfast, hosted at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, and a social day on Waiheke Island at beautiful Stonyridge Vineyard.
