Superyacht Australia Soirée Returns For 2022
The Superyacht Australia Soirée returns to Sydney’s Jones Bay Marina for its third edition on Saturday 26 February 2022.
Superyacht Australia is the peak body for the Australian superyacht industry, and first held the event on 22nd February 2020, on the back of major new charter legislation that was announced in December 2019.
The third edition of the event sees the return of renowned Italian yachtbuilder, Benetti Yachts, as the Major Partner. With the backdrop of Sydney’s Harbour Bridge, guests will have the chance to view an impressive display of vessels at Jones Bay Wharf, courtesy of the event’s broker partners, which include Fraser and Ocean Alliance.
In addition to the superyacht display and ‘yacht hop’, guests will be treated to entertainment; canapés; award-winning Tyrrell’s Wines; whisky from Glenfiddich; gin tasting from Manly Spirits Co; caviar from Pacific Provisions; and the opportunity to peruse a trifecta of Maseratis which will line the marina apron while watching Fliteboard’s latest technology in action on the water.
“Australia has the largest domestic fleet in Asia Pacific,” explains David Good, CEO of Superyacht Australia. “It has almost doubled in size and number during the last 12 months. The Soirée is the perfect opportunity to view some of the finest vessels anywhere in the world.
“Australia is one of the most in-demand cruising destinations and the gateway to the South Pacific. Yacht charter is the ideal way to experience some of our amazing attractions and regions in true comfort and luxury.”
Australia is well on its way to becoming a new superyacht frontier, with foreign-flagged vessels now permitted to charter in Australian waters without the need to be imported. The change has opened up Australia’s unique cruising grounds, from Sydney Harbour to the Great Barrier Reef and the remote Kimberleys, and a number of notable international superyachts have already taken advantage of the new opportunity for charter.
Australia’s diverse charter destinations, as well as its award-winning shipyard and marina infrastructure, will be the focus of the upcoming Australia InDepth documentary. You can watch the trailer here.
