Leaders in the yachting industry in Vanuatu created this summer the Vanuatu Yacht & Superyacht Association (VYSA). Its goal is to promote the island nation as a destination, to serve as a liaison between government and business, to improve all aspects of the yachting industry in the South Pacific nation, and to create and sustain yachting industry training there.

About 300 cruising yachts and 20 superyachts visit Vanuatu each year, the group says, and these figures are increasing.

For more information, the group can be contacted at thevysa@gmail.com.
