The World comes to our shores Boaties' delight: The World wasn't the only luxury vessel to drop its anchor around Waiheke shores in the past week. Ocean Victory was anchored in Pie Melon Bay overnight at the weekend. The 76-metre long vessel, which is registered in the Cayman Isles and was built in the Netherlands in 2009, towered over the runabouts and Sealegs that circled the super yacht to take a closer look. The World: Put down anchor off the coast of Matiatia last Friday. Photo: AL REEVE Big presence: The World dwarfs a Fullers ferry. Photo: KIM BRINSTER Citizens of The World decided Waiheke was the place to visit and asked their captain to put down anchor off Matiatia last Friday. The floating city is the only private residential comm- unity-at-sea. It set sail in 2002 and has since visited more than 800 ports in 140 countries on a continuous worldwide itinerary. The 43-ton cruise liner is nearly 200 metres long but only has 165 luxury residences that are privately owned by 130 families from 19 countries. Accommodation ranges from studios to three-bedroom apartments. Residents spend an average of four months on board every year so occupancy is an aver- age of just 150 to 200 residents and guests at any one time. They enjoy the height of luxury, including the use of four main restaurants, state- of-the-art health and fitness facilities and an award- winning spa. And it's the residents who collectively determine the ship's itinerary with the cap- tain. They chose a tour around Waiheke the day after celebrating The World's 10th anniversary on March 29. Animal Welfare volunteers Volunteer collectors are urgently needed for the South Pacific Animal Welfare organisation. The charity provides free veterinary care in the Pacific Islands and wants friendly, articu- late and responsible people to man its gold coin collections at vari- ous venues.
