With an adventure around every headland, and serene bays vying with ancient glaciers for your attention, there’s nothing like New Zealand by superyacht.
Discover an unfathomably-deep lake which draws breath every 20 minutes, at the foot of two mountain ranges gilded by the world’s first daylight at their peaks. Warm Pacific welcomes come naturally here, with a rich Māori heritage which weaves culture and landscape.
On-water, find cruising that takes you past vineyards tumbling to the ocean and islet-studded bays. Take a slow meander up fiords accompanied by dolphins and seals. Then a helicopter to picnic in valleys where glaciers make their thousand-year creep towards you. Welcome to the superyacht hub of the South Pacific.

Orams Marine’s operations manager, Richard Low translated his successful career onboard yachts into a role within the Auckland refit yard. Now enjoying his thriving work life on-land, he describes how his crew experience gave insight into streamlining the refit process and shares his tips on making a successful move ashore.
The quality of work is impeccable and rivals the best yacht builders in the world... Orams delivered on all the work with the utmost efficiency and skill. I'm more than pleased." The captain of 49 metre Vitters-built yacht, Thalia had that to say and more, of the yacht's 2019 refit at Orams Marine
This was without a doubt, our hardest yard period to date, involving a variety of upgrades and Orams did a great job coordinating it all. They produce great results with a very team-focused environment. We’re extremely happy with Oram’s dedication and can’t speak highly enough of both Craig Park and Richard Low who made it all happen.
There's no point entering the Pacific, unless you've contacted Craig at Orams Marine first. For us, most-importantly, everyone involved really enjoyed what is normally a hectic, busy and stressful time. We all have very fond memories of our new friends, the Orams team and its extended sub-contractor family.
