NZ Marine is involved in the following boat shows and events:
- Marine Trades Challenge

- Auckland On Water Boat Show
- Industry Training Graduation
- NZ Marine Industry Conference
Organised by the NZ Marine Export Group and a dedicated committee of some of New Zealand’s most pre-eminent superyacht industry figures, the NZ Millennium Cup is a celebration of good racing, great cruising grounds and exceptional hospitality.
Drawing attention to New Zealand’s beautiful cruising grounds, skilled workforce and innovative industry, we’re looking forward to delivering an event which showcases the best of our superyacht sector in a relaxed, recognisably-Kiwi style. A key focus of the regatta is to encourage extended cruising within the country, and the committee will be working closely with the wider industry to ensure yachts are aware of the diversity New Zealand waters present, as well as the opportunity for world-leading refit and repair services.
