A group of Australian superyacht experts have gathered together to form a network of superyacht agency/concierge service providers in Australia.

Australasian Superyacht Services (ASYS) provides full agency/concierge services to superyachts travelling from port to port around the Australian coastline and throughout the Australasian region.

The group, which is working in conjunction with Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) Oceania, offers assistance with customs, immigration and quarantine, electronic crew visas, customs agency, berthing, refit and repair and fuel sales. An extensive catalogue of marine equipment is also available through WSS’s Unitor brand of marine products.

ASYS has 10 branch offices around the country, all of which are headed up by the key superyacht industry figure in that port/region. All agents are either ex-superyacht captains or superyacht industry experts.

They include:
Captain Richard Morris – Sydney Superyacht Services, Sydney, Newcastle
Captain Joe Akacich – Gold Coast Superyacht Services, Gold Coast, Whitsunday Islands
Captain Mike Ebsworth – Brisbane Superyacht Services, Brisbane, Hervey Bay
Captain Robert Van Der Moigg/Doc Taylor – Cairns Superyacht Services
Murray Hird – Northern Australian Superyacht Services, Darwin
Kevin Altera/Rod Tweddle – Western Australian Superyacht Services, Fremantle, Exmouth, Broome
John Ferguson – Melbourne Superyacht Services
Captain Peter Cook – Adelaide & Hobart Superyacht Services

ASYS commenced operations on September 1 and is already providing agency services to a number of large superyachts visiting Australia.
