New Zealand marine industry launches Friends of NZ Marine

ADVERTISEMENT

In preparation of America’s Cup racing this fall, the New Zealand marine industry has launched Friends of NZ Marine, a new initiative designed to connect Kiwis and Kiwi friends working on or around boats worldwide.

Through e-newsletters and social media efforts, members of Friends of NZ Marine will be informed of industry developments (NZ-designed or built boats, technology and equipment) and relevant government news (e.g. opening of new superyacht berths in New Zealand and cruising destinations around NZ for visiting yachts to explore).

High-profile supporters include Grant Dalton, managing director of Emirates Team NZ; superyacht designers Ed Dubois of Dubois Naval Architects, U.K., Ron Holland of Ron Holland Design, Canada; American boat designer and blue water sailor Steve Dashew.

NZ Marine is leveraging the 34th America’s Cup to make connections with hundreds of Kiwis at the event. Team New Zealand’s base in San Francisco will also be used for networking during the Louis Vuitton Cup and America’s Cup racing which runs from July 4 until late September.

NZMI will be hosting three days at the base from Aug. 22-24 and Team New Zealand said they would have up to 190 people out on the water each day to watch racing, as well as enjoy hospitality at the base.
