Oceania Marine Shipyards and Hall Spars & Rigging have signed an agreement to establish a service centre at Port Whangarei in New Zealand. The facility will be focused on servicing large sailing rigs.
The service centre is located at Oceania Marine Shipyards utilising its extensive facilities backed up by Hall Spars & Rigging’s manufacturing and servicing facility at Silverdale, north of Auckland; only an hour’s drive from the shipyard.
“Port Whangarei is already the main service centre in the Pacific for the smaller world cruising yachts but over recent years an increasing number of larger yachts including a number of superyachts have chosen to come to the port. Formalising an arrangement with a premiere builder of high-performance spars and rigging such as Hall Spars will be to the ultimate benefit of larger sailing yachts and considerably enhances the services available at the shipyards,” comments Jim Loynes, client liaison and marketing manager for Oceania Marine.
