Silo Marina

It has 150,000 yachts and launches, and one in three households has a boat. Tristan Rutherford reveals how to sip, spa and shop your day around the City of Sails in New Zealand during your maritime expedition

1. Silo Marina

Arrive in Silo Marina, the superyacht port of choice, accommodating vessels up to 116 metres. Head for breakfast at contemporary restaurant Giraffe by Simon Gault, famous for fresh New Zealand produce, and order the west coast whitebait fritter with ginger and lime crème fraiche. Afterwards stroll to Unity Books. The independent shop is home to Taschen’s back catalogue and prides itself on being able to track down any book in the world.
