In 2011 Sevenstar Yacht Transport achieved 23 sailings for loading and discharge in Australia. The company is on its way exceeding this amount in 2012. They have already organised two sailings bound for Australia into both Newcastle and Brisbane. Other ports to be called into this year are Fremantle, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
Just one and a half hours north from Sydney lies Newcastle City. Newcastle is the largest city within the Hunter Region of NSW and lies at the mouth of the mighty Hunter River. A City that is famous for its heavy industry as well as being one of the major coal export regions within Australia is now adjusting with the increasing culmination of yachts arriving on its doorstep.
With the growing interest in yachts, Newcastle has become the gateway to endless possibilities for the yachting community. The region is becoming the embarkation point for those looking to cruise Australia’s shores or for those looking to ship their yacht overseas. This includes those eager to experience new cruising grounds abroad.
The ongoing arrival of ships, carrying dozens of yachts to and from the USA and Europe has seen this interest grow. Yachts, both power and sail, converge on the seaside city, bringing in work for the local marine industry.
The managers at the Newcastle Yacht Club are kept busy with new customers and returning clients alike; all looking for somewhere to berth or engage one of the many local marine services in maintaining their pride and joy. www.sevenstar-australia.com
