Dutch superyacht builder Moonen Yachts are excited to announce their sponsorship of the Moonen Yachts Sydney to Auckland Ocean Race 2021. The 1,250-nm ocean regatta will take place on 30th January 2021, with the Moonen team and owners in attendance. At the finish in Auckland, which will coincide with the Americas Cup 2021, Moonen Yachts will present their latest 36m award winning superyacht the Martinique. This yacht will be on display in the marina to welcome the competitors and will also be available for prescheduled client visits.
CENTERPIECE OF SUMMER
This new collaboration aims to support and promote continuous competitive sailing in the south pacific and to promote Moonen Yachts to superyacht clients around the world whilst widening Moonen’s reach within the expanding regional market. The Moonen Yachts Sydney to Auckland Ocean Race will be the centerpiece of a summer of major yachting events. The season opens with the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race in December followed by the Moonen Yachts Sydney to Auckland Ocean race which finishes in Auckland Harbour to coincide with the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s (RNZYS) 150th Anniversary celebrations and the prestigious 36th America’s Cup racing.
CATEGORY 1 RACE
The Moonen Yachts Sydney to Auckland Ocean Race is a Category 1 race, open to J class, maxi yachts and multihulls with the first leg of a rally for cruisers. The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club promises a diverse program for the 2021 Australian regatta, with participating yachts including the Prada Cup series and more.
“Australia is a growing market,” says Johan Dubbelman CEO of Moonen Yachts. “We believe our yachts are a perfect fit for the Asia/Pacific region and so this market is increasingly significant for Moonen. We are happy to support the 2021 series of this fantastic ocean race with the Moonen race team and look forward to expanding the iconic Moonen brand in Australia and beyond”.
The Moonen owners, together with the Moonen team, will attend the Moonen Yachts Sydney to Auckland Ocean Race on 30th January 2021, beginning in Sydney Harbour, Australia. More information on the event as well as the latest Moonen Yachts updates will follow on the Moonen website and social media channels in the coming months.
