The 2012 New Zealand Millennium Cup regatta held in Auckland is being heralded as a great success. The three day regatta proved a true spectacle with Superyachts sailing close in shore giving local residents and office workers of downtown Auckland an appreciation of Superyacht sailing.
As committed Platinum sponsors of the annual event for the next three years, Yachting Developments was thrilled to have Silvertip win the regatta, and regarded it as simply the icing on the cake.
Reigning champion Silvertip is a 34metre (111ft) composite sloop built by Yachting Developments and when launched in 2002 won both the International Superyacht Society award for Best Sailing Yacht and the Showboats Design Award for Best Sailing Yacht. Since her launching Silvertip has clocked many thousands of ocean miles and still with her original owner.
