Yachts Gather in Sydney for First Ever Superyacht Show

The first yachts are arriving to participate in the inaugural Sydney Superyacht Show which will run from 1 to 3 August.

The Show will be hosted at the Sydney Superyacht Marina, a venue that was purpose-built for superyachts during the 2000 Olympics.

With new facilities currently under development, the marina is set to become a centre of excellence for the superyacht industry.

Primarily a brokerage show, the Sydney Superyacht Show will feature pre-owned superyachts and luxury vessels currently for sale in Sydney.

There will be around 10 separate brokerage companies booking in vessels for the show, ranging in size from 52 to 135-feet.

Participating brokerage companies include
  • Australian Superyachts
  • Geoff Lovett International,
  • Sunseeker Select Brokerage
  • Fraser Yachts
  • Ray White Marine.
Vessels on display include
  • Patriot 1 (34 metre 2004 Keith Lloyd Ships)
  • Ophelia (36 metre 2004 NQEA)
  • Oneworld (2004 Sunseeker 82)
  • Penultimate II (2011 Princess 85)
  • Warren 25 metre motor yacht.
Prospective yacht owners will have a unique opportunity to visit the yachts on offer by various brokers, conveniently in the one location, which will be a first for the Australian market.

This Superyacht News Outlet is Moving

For the last three years this news site has carried super yacht news published in a Google Blogger format as well as appearing on our own news site www.thehoworths.com.

Our Web site has until now been a secondary aspect of our promotional tool kit and because of its make up and design has not been capable to handling the traffic it now attracts.

So a major re-design was commissioned and highly experienced web designers who know and understand the superyacht industry were called in to create a new site.

That site is now ready to go live

From Wednesday 23rd July 2014 the news will appear only on the News pages of that Web site.

If you subscribe to this news site using Google Blogger we urge you to alter your book marks so that by going directly to www.thehoworths.com you will get the same quality news briefings without delay 

Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club appoints Marina Projects Ltd


The growing demand for moorings in Hong Kong has led to the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) and Hebe Haven Yacht Club (HHYC) to call in the specialists.

Marina Projects the global, independent, specialist marina consultancy based on the south coast of England will undertake a review of the mooring capacity at their facilities to analyse the efficiency of the current water space with consideration to the site constraints and local market in order to better accommodate.

The review will take account of both the RHKYC and HHYC swinging moorings and look to produce practical conceptual arrangements that optimise the existing mooring facilities of both clubs, ensuring there is a match between vessel sizes and mooring capacity.

In order to provide the necessary level of detailed appraisal and consider the extreme typhoon conditions, Marina Projects will be making an assessment of the metocean data and prevailing site conditions.

The review comes against a background of a wider review by Maritime Authorities in Hong Kong of the general demand for mooring and typhoon shelter capacity.

Marina Projects has been active throughout the Asia Pacific region since 2010 and has recently opened a branch office in Hong Kong; the company has an existing relationship with Mott Macdonald Hong Kong and other projects in the region include Baroque on Lamma, New World Qingdao, Westhaven (New Zealand) and Wyndham Harbour (Australia).
