Big-spending superyacht turned away

It doesn't take a lot of digging to find the owner also has significant interests in Silver Yachts in Australia.  Silver Yachts is a large superyacht building and maintenance company in Freemantle.

Which begs the question, wtf would they come to NZ for a major refit?

And kinda explains why they now advise they will be going to Aussie for the work.

Quelle surprise n'est pas?

They never said they were coming to NZ for a major refit. That is just a rumour, that was repeated by the Herald. No doubt put about by someone with vested interests. All the skipper would say was he had a few life jackets and rafts to service. You don't keep 20 something crew on if you are going through a major refit...

Correct.  So whence the $5m figure being tossed about?

Just bad reportage with not a lot of backgrounding done I suspect.

NZ lost another 3 million superboat service to Aussie today.
