Decision power

30 July 2015
A very interesting read fromThe Superyacht Owner , on the role crew have in a yard period. Read an excerpt here and for the full story, head to theThe Superyacht Owner .  

When an owner’s superyacht is in the shipyard, its crew plays a crucial role.  The Crew Report ’s Superyacht Golden Ticket crew survey revealed that 57.3 per cent of crew are heavily involved in their yachts’ refits while a meager 1.8 per cent of crew have no involvement. Moreover, 45.3 per cent of crew told  The Crew Report  they have influence in where an owner’s yacht goes for its refit. There’s certainly a bit of power in the crews’ hands, so we think it only fair to share with you their experiences of being in the shipyard with owners’ assets.

Review:  Ārahi gourmet drinks

03 July 2015
Looking for a premium non-alchoholic beverage for the yacht? Look no further than new company Ārahi , which offers a range of elegant alcohol-free beverages with character and depth of flavour, served in fine stemware. Redefining non-alcoholic beverages the company offers gourmet drinks, crafted from cold-pressed, unfermented, premium New Zealand fruits.

Ārahi was inspired by co-founders David and Jo-Anne’s frustration of the lack of fine, non-alcoholic drinks available at bars. “I was stunned, the non-alcoholic choices were one dimensional, boring, there wasn’t any fine glassware, all topped off with a kiddies straw. You stood out as the ‘non-drinker’ in the room, as though there’s something wrong with you,” co-founder David Wilson said. “The truth is you are likely to not be drinking because you are doing something really positive – pregnancy, health, cutting back, keeping a clear head, training or being the sober driver who will be getting everyone home safe that night. So we should be treated with respect like everyone one else; fine glass, sophisticated drink, great night out.
Ārahi is a Maori word meaning  to lead, to guide. The company believes Ārahi is the world’s leading range of gourmet juices and their vision is to be the guiding light on the what is possible in the premium non-alcoholic beverage space.

The 2 Kareras are crafted from the finest of Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc grapes and Kuratea from quality Merlot grapes.

Review: The Jefferson

02 July 2015
After a surge of fine dining eateries popping up around the city over the last few years, you’d be forgiven for relegating alcohol to the passenger seat when deciding where to spend the night. The Jefferson on Fort Lane is out to change this.

The new bar and restaurant combines not only a staggering selection of the finest whiskeys but a delicious menu too. Offering 600 – yes, 600 – whiskeys from far flung corners of the earth and bartenders to take you through the whole ride, The Jefferson is perfectly positioned to lead the charge of a resurgent whiskey drinking community in Auckland.
Review: The Jefferson
For those whose eyes water at the thought of whiskey, a more than capable full bar and cocktail menu – named after American entertainers – will take care of your needs.

Slow-cooked pork, beef and lamb ribs complete the all-American taste bud assault, with a number of weekly changing specials, sides and desserts.

Open into the night from Monday – Saturday and for a lazy lunch from Wednesday – Friday, The Jefferson is a unique drinking – and dining – experience.
