Millennium Cup

Smuggler Marine have been avid supporters and sponsors of the Millennium Cup since 2012. The 2015 Superyacht racing event was held in the beautiful Bay of Islands as part of the Bay of Islands Race Week from 21 -23 January. There was some spectacular action with the Bay putting on fabulous weather and plenty of wind, and racing was fast and furious. The Smuggler Strata 750 Mid Cabin powered by the very first Gen 2 Etec in New Zealand waters was the support boat for the event. Reaching speeds of over 50 knots we were in the right RIB for chasing Superyachts around the course.

Joining the Smuggler line up was a Strata 670 powered by an Etec 175hp, taking the photographers to the action. Have a look at the stunning photos taken by the legendary Jeff Brown.
