“While we may never bridge the gulf between Superyacht Owners and indigenous peoples, we can inspire responsible tourism & interaction that benefits both groups”, said Capt Cilian Budarlaigh of Indo Yacht Support.

The charity RDV event in Bali raises funds and awareness amongst visiting yachtsmen, locals and ex-pats. Eight large yachts have already committed to help with deliveries in 2013.

“We aim to inspire people to give of their time on a regular basis – not just donate some cash once a year” said Captain Neil Hempsey “if the charity effort is easy, then people will stay involved without needing our continual input, and this is a long term target of ours”.

The charities supported are: Yacht Aid Global, Bali Street Kids Orphanage, Pulau Banyak Turtle Sanctuary, and the Rainbow Reading Gardens. Funds raised are used to provide much needed medical & school equipment, food supplies and other professional assistance to primary school age kids, as per the “wish list” provided by each charity.

Any persons or organizations wishing to join the continuing charity efforts of the YSG Bali Superyacht  Charity RDV should contact neil@indoyachtsupport.com

Yacht Support Group has agency representation in 13 regional countries, offering select visiting Superyachts superior back-up from the Maldives through to Papua New Guinea. Their team of ex-Superyacht captains and maritime professionals ensure knowledgeable local support plus a deep understanding of a Superyacht’s needs & concerns. The AsiaPacific region may seem remote, but with a dedicated team like YSG, a yacht is never isolated.
