Over the years McMullen & Wing has earned a sterling reputation for unique custom yachts. Southern Spars is globally respected as the leading choice for superyacht carbon spars, with the company now having supplied masts to approximately 60–70 per cent of all sailing superyachts. Doyle Sails New Zealand has a reputation as one of the world’s best sail makers due to its ever-evolving technology and performance focused sails. These three companies are key examples of the quality and innovation coming out of New Zealand. Through unprecedented success in the international sailing arena Elliott Marine is recognised as a world leader in racing yacht design and contemporary, high performance cruising yachts.
The 111-foot (34-meter) VvS1 is spending the next several months cruising in the South Pacific before heading to the New Zealand-based yard.
Since the refit is survey-related, to comply with Lloyds classification, the scope of the work is mostly on systems. Our team consists of expert NZQA qualified New Zealand boat builders and marine spray painters who can undertake any required repairs, refit and maintenance work, as well as custom modifications, upgrades and specialist boat building projects spanning wood, fibreglass and composite vessels of all sizes.
We also work with International boat owners who require yacht refits, or expert boat building and boat repair services while visiting New Zealand. Our boat builders can help with general structural checkups and maintenance, haul-outs and New Zealand based yacht refits or repaints, Marine Shield and PropSpeed application, major hull or structural repairs, duck board or bow thruster installations, repairing or replacing windows or hatches.


The multi-award winning 45m Big Fish, built for a Hong Kong-based owner in 2010 and now frequently based in Phuket, Thailand, has travelled thousands of nautical miles and won an army of fans for her hardy yet stylish exterior. With a global network, including the headquarters in New Zealand and its one design facility in Sri Lanka, Southern Spars regularly works with many sailing yacht builders. The New Zealand loft supplies its innovative Stratis sails from its 7000sqm sail loft to the global Doyle network of more than 80 lofts. Having proved popular around the world, it is no surprise that as the yachting pastime grows in Asia these brands are becoming increasingly in demand. The Elliott pedigree of proven race winning formula transfers seamlessly to cruising yachts that are elegant, innovative and sea kindly.
From small basic wooden boat building jobs and alterations, through to total haul-out services and comprehensive custom alternations or repairs work, engine maintenance and general servicing.
