Hi guys - after finishing up the Med season, I'm returning to NZ for the summer, and am curious if anyone has any info on what the superyacht scene is like there at the moment? (specifically Auckland) ie. are there many boats there during the kiwi summer? Is daywork/temp work easy enough to find? (what does it pay?) What/where are the yachtie hangouts? Cheers! Chris.

Hi, the Kiwi super yacht season has kicked off earlier this year with the help of the Rugby World Cup.  Several large boats ventured down under with many of them still here.  The industry is growing in NZ and the Pacific with more and more boats making the trip.  You are welcome to send your CV through to me at and register with TopCrew DownUnder.
