On Friday 31st July, a Captains’ dinner held in Cairns by the SuperYacht Group Great Barrier Reef highlighted the startling potential of the Australian city as a superyacht homeport for the South Pacific region. Perfectly nestled between two natural wonders, Cairns is a truly inexhaustible destination resting on a strong backbone of major superyacht infrastructure. Its small island culture and first-world facilities make Cairns an attractive base for superyachts to explore the adventures of the South Pacific.
Voted for by superyacht captains and crew, the ACREW Superyacht Business Awards 2021 recognised the Best Superyacht Marina, rewarding quality of service and facilities. The Mediterranean gem of Port Montenegro took home the top prize, with Australia’s Coral Sea Marina announced as the runner-up.
