National Marine Pacific was created to make sourcing quality parts and supplies anywhere in the Pacific, quick, easy and efficient.
Cruising the Pacific is synonymous with adventure, far-flung atolls and exciting cultures. Those same elements which make it such an exceptional cruising ground however, can make life harder for crew when they need parts or supplies in a hurry.
National Marine Pacific was created to ensure all yachts cruising the Pacific have access to the same great National Marine service, no matter how far from the nearest formal port they are. With a team based in Auckland, we've worked hard to secure a freight path through the Pacific to ensure you are able to have parts, supplies and provisions delivered, no matter where you are in the Pacific. It's a first, and we're very proud to bring this service to you.
We provide door-to-door service, importing any goods we don't have stocked from National Marine's US headquarters, handling customs clearance, solving problems on the spot from our Auckland office and offering warehouse facilities to hold goods here in preparation for refit or your arrival, or sending them to you around the Pacific.
Local team, global experience, worldwide network.
Our team come from a broad range of backgrounds across the superyacht industry, but are tied together by one core element - they're passionate about our Pacific backyard and want to help you make the most of it.
Though Mark's introduction to yachting began more than two decades ago sailing from New Zealand to France, the time in between has seen him work in the industry all across the world. His time onboard saw him team up with some of yachting's best, before a stint overseeing the completion and delivery of a Feadship at the De Vries yard in Holland, and further projects in Germany and Spain. Following that it was a two year posting to the Gulf region as director of operations for a state fleet and finally as a director of yacht management based in Monaco.
His strong Polynesian heritage and formative years spent in the Cook Islands, Samoa and New Zealand meant the call of the Pacific after so long abroad was too great, and Mark is now happily at home in Auckland helping yachts make the most of the South Pacific.
National Marine Suppliers is a worldwide yacht support group providing the most professional service and on-time reliability in the world. Well-known as the world's number one choice for megayacht owners, captains and crew, we're very pleased to bring our service, range and knowledge to the Pacific with National Marine Pacific.
HEAD - PR & MARKETING
Isla's introduction to the yachting world was not on the sandy shores of her island home, but in London where she continued her journalism career when taking on a new job writing for a superyacht magazine.
Eventually feeling the call for home, she made the move back to New Zealand and is now settled in Auckland helping visitors to this part of the world discover the best of South Pacific stories, culture, cruising and products. She has a keen interest in the philanthropic and sustainable side of the superyacht industry and is the communications manager for superyacht aid organisation YachtAid Global as well as sits on the board of industry group YPY.
She grew up on the beaches of Auckland's North Shore and loves promoting the stories of the Pacific to help yachts, their guests and crew get the most out of our very special corner of the ocean.
