The annual Fiji/ New Zealand Trade Marine day on July 27 is an important event as it assists vessels on their onward travels to New Zealand says Cynthia Rasch.

Ms Rasch, Port Denarau Marina general manager said this was the third year the Nadi marina was the event.

“This is an important event for both NZ Marine and Port Denarau Marina to assist vessels on their onward travels to NZ,” she said.

“Come along and meet some of the top New Zealand marine companies with representatives covering a broad range of facilities and services including marine products, equipment, plus refit and maintenance.

“Particularly for this year there has been an increase in vessel arrivals into NZ prior to the 36th America’s Cup.

“This will benefit both Fiji and NZ as we have seen an upward trend in vessel arrivals into Fiji in the past number of years with a forecast of 700 vessels visiting our shores this year.

She added that Fiji was an ideal destination for cruising with warm weather to compliment the warm personalities of the Fijian people and the more than 333 islands to explore.

Port Denarau Marina has been awarded the Best International Marina from 2014-2018 by Marina Industries Association providing world class facility and services to visiting yachts and super-yachts.

“The marina is well positioned to provide a stopover for rest, recreation and provisioning during cruising of the Fijian Islands and is a marina of choice by many transient vessels,” she said.

“Although there are extensive amounts of information available online, it’s a whole different experience to meet face to face to discuss, network and share ideas, and this is exactly what the Fiji/NZ Marine Trade Day allows you to do.”

The event is open to all boaters, visiting yachts and super yachts and the public from 10am-3pm.
