North Australia Yacht Support (NAYS) has been recognised for it’s success in growing Darwin as a Superyacht destination by being awarded the Tony Clementson Award for New Tourism Business at the 2018 Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Awards. The company, founded in 2017 by experienced Superyacht industry professionals and North Australia advocates, has strategically grown Superyacht traffic in Darwin by over 300%, and in doing so, firmly placed the region on the global Superyacht cruising circuit.
The tourism accolade tops off an incredible year for NAYS, following it’s recent win of the International Business Council Service Award at the 2018 Chief Minister’s Northern Territory Export & Industry Awards in September. Directors Ayla & Toby Wharton are now busy preparing for the national stage in both industries, with the hope of further exposing the value and potential of the Superyacht industry to members of parliament in Canberra.
Company management attribute the success of the company to their passion and dedication in providing world class Superyacht concierge services across the North Australia coast, combined with targeted marketing of the business and region.
