A Message from Justin Jenkin
“Seal Superyachts Vanuatu is Vanuatu’s leading full service Superyacht Support Agency. Officially launched in 2010, we provide shore support and assistance to Superyachts and Yachts visiting all regions of Vanuatu.
We have extensive experience in handling superyachts and yachts, having a superyacht captain as MD and a team of experienced superyacht and yacht professionals coupled with the very best local island experts and a sound support network through the islands. We have worked for many yacht owners and captains, and deliver an excellent service. We are confident that we are the superior choice for your Vanuatu Superyacht Agent.”
Vanuatu is an island nation in the SW Pacific composed of over 80 islands with 2,528 kilometers of coastline and a total surface area of 12,189 square kilometers. Vanuatu lies a mere 600 nm to the West of Fiji and 1000 nm East of the Australian East Coast making it a great stopover point for yachts heading across the Pacific or for those on a SW Pacific circuit.
Due to the many islands, most of which are sparsely populated, Vanuatu has an abundance of safe, beautiful and unspoiled anchorages and bays, with some spectacular scenery. Each island, bay and village along the way brings a new and totally unique experience to the visitor.

"I would like to thank Seal Superyachts Vanuatu Yacht for looking after us during our visit to Vanuatu...with provisioning, shipping and going above and beyond the everyday expectations of a Superyacht Agent to make sure our guests were taken care of.
I hope more Superyachts find their way to your beautiful country during their travels across the Pacific Ocean. They will be equally satisfied with your excellent service and support"
Captain Winston Joyce-Clarke, M/Y Big Fish
"Cruising in Vanuatu can be confusing lesson in logistics for many superyachts. The sheer size of the island group and diversity of its people and villages makes it easy to miss a golden opportunity that could turn a good trip into an amazing life experience. That's when you need the help of a good agent, Justine and Claire of Seal Superyachts Vanuatu are those agents.
After thirty nine years of running world roving superyachts I would not think of visiting Vanuatu without Claire and Justin on our team."
Captain Ed Collins, M/Y Nomadess
"As an ex super yacht Captain with a wide range of local contacts established during his family’s long term residence in Vanuatu, Justin was extremely well organized and easily able to anticipate our needs. He dealt with all entry and departure formalities, at anchor fuel requirements, airport transfers, as well as providing us with invaluable local knowledge and suggestions for our cruising itinerary.In short, VYS played a major role in helping us to provide the owner and guests with what will go down for them as one of the most memorable cruises they have ever enjoyed on the boat. If I ever find myself in Vanuatu again, my first call will be to Justin."
