Rivergate Vessel of the Month – July 2015. Masteka 2


IMG_8148Motor Yacht Masteka 2 is a luxury charter superyacht based in Sydney, Australia. The vessel tailors individual charters all year round between Australia and Fiji, venturing to remote beaches and untouched dive sites, with the option of taking you ashore for an authentic cultural experience. Notwithstanding her new Captain, this vessel is a regular customer of Rivergate; Masteka 2 most recently voyaged to Brisbane to engage Rivergate for the vessels five year survey and annual maintenance period. Whilst in the shipyard the vessel also underwent other works including the complete manufacture and installation of a new cabin and replacement of the galley splashback, amongst other smaller works.

Masteka 2 was launched in 2009, built by Kha Shing in Taiwan and is an impressive 37 metres in length. Why do they continue to choose Rivergate? “Rivergate had been recommended to me, and they have a good reputation” Masteka’s Captain reports; “They offer a competitive rate for the work IMG_8127required… the staff are excellent and have a great attitude”.

This vessel can accommodate up to 12 guests, chartering the Whitsundays, New Caledonia and Fiji and is every bit the reflection of modern luxury you’d expect to see in a chartering superyacht. The Captain’s top tips for other vessels coming to Rivergate include “touching base with the project management team as soon as possible, because their contractor’s get busy quickly, and organising a well located crew house (if required)” – something Rivergate’s friendly concierge can help you with.

Masteka 2 has now left for their season in Fiji, beginning their next enviable charter adventure. However we will see them next season when they return to Australia!
