Superyachts in New Caledonia, MY Tango

More and more superyachts have been migrating to the cruising grounds of New Caledonia over the past few years. Some are as big as a small cruise ship. This one, the 37 metre long MY Tango anchored in Baie du Prony on the southeastern tip of the South Pacific Island of New Caledonia for a couple of nights on a leisurely cruise from the Isle of Pines to Noumea.

As I took her image, Tango danced at anchor, turning this way and that, showing off her luxurious curves and reflecting the summer sunset with her high tech polish.

Tango is privately owned and has a crew of 4 to look after her and the owner and guests. I enjoyed talking to the crew and discovered that Haley, the lovely stewardess of the superyacht attended the prestigious Superyacht Crew Academy in Sydney where she trained to be a hostess aboard these mega yachts.

It's not an easy job, looking after a superyacht and her ultra-rich owners, but on the other hand the job certainly has it's perks; rent-free living in luxury, great food, high pay, and of course travel to some of the most romantic and beautiful places on the planet. If I wasn't an owner of a super yacht (well, it's only a very small 14 metre one) I'd be tempted to head off to the training academy myself.

More About New Caledonia

New Caledonia is the closest South Pacific Island to Australia and New Zealand. It is a French Territory and although the official language is French the culture is a blend of Melanesian, European, Polynesian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Indonesian, and more. There is one large mountainous island called Grande Terre and 6 smaller islands - the three Loyalty Islands, Belep and the Isle of Pines.The islands are remarkably unpopulated and there are vast areas of wilderness. There are hundreds of kilometers of walking treks, camp grounds, more than 42 parks and reserves, and crystal clear rivers with sparkling waterfalls. Almost one third of the population is located in the capital city of Noumea. Nickel mining is the primary industry and is the major contributor to the high standard of living in the country. Grande Terre is surrounded by the second largest barrier reef in the world and the protected lagoon created by this barrier reef is the largest in the world. Listed as a World Heritage Site in 2008, the lagoon is 24,000 square kilometers and supports a diverse and luxuriant fauna of fish and invertebrates.The vibrant, clear and rich colors are one of the first things that visitors notice when they arrive. Noumea has a complete range of hotels, resorts, restaurants, and activities to welcome visitors.
