Asia Pacific Superyachts Fiji GM, David Jamieson is part of the APS company network of superyacht agency owner agents and has been welcoming superyachts to Fijian waters and the delights of Fiji culture since 2001.
David commented earlier in the year that things are getting better for visiting yachts: “The Government’s reduction of the Super Yacht Charter Tax from 12.5 per cent to 10 per cent will help to increase the number of visiting yachts. The Super Yacht Charter Tax is no longer called a ‘super yacht’ tax; superyachts are now charged an environment and climate adaptation levy of 10 per cent, levied on the stated gross charter fee as disclosed on the charter contract”.
David has seen the yachting industry become a major contributor to the Fijian economy and his company is firmly established, with a staff of over forty people including head office and a repair and maintenance facility in Vuda. Fiji now receives over 700 yachts annually and he believes visiting yachts can exceed 1,000 once the Lau Clearance Post is operational. He’s the ‘go-to’ guy on Fiji for visiting yachts and can be found at the Port Denarau Marina.
