APS expands in New Zealand

ADVERTISEMENT

Asia Pacific Superyachts has opened a new office in Whangarei, New Zealand. Led by former crew member Karma Butler, APS NZ has already serviced a handful of vessels coming to Whangarei, according to a news statement.

APS NZ is able to assist with both refits and cruising.

“When compared with Auckland, Whangarei is much more cost effective,” Butler said. “All of the yards are in one area, there are no traffic issues, you’re right on the doorstep of the beautiful Northland beaches and the people are extremely friendly. Whangarei and Northland are not high-rise cities and have a more relaxed and ‘beachy’ lifestyle.”

Amenities in shipyards in the area include a 2000-ton capacity slipway and sheltered berths of up to 120m. And Marsden Cove Marina can dock vessels up to 44m.

In related news, APS has expanded in Langkawi, Malaysia, at the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club (RLYC). Joining Capt. Charlie Dwyer at the location is Scott Walker of APS Singapore

APS acts as the agent for yachts over 30m for RLYC, where Langkawi is duty-free.

Recent improvements to the marina include four berths for yachts 60-70m and two berths for yachts 80-90m. The berths are fitted with power pedestals of 250 and 400 amps, respectively.
