A party fit for a su­per yacht agent

The Cairns Post - - NEWS -

MEM­BERS of the Su­per Yacht Great Bar­rier Reef group donned su­per­hero cos­tumes for a party on the Cairns docks.

It was a mile­stone celebration for group chair­woman and Carter Ma­rine Agen­cies owner Car­rie Carter, who cel­e­brated 15 years in busi­ness.

Ms Carter, who picked up the moniker “Su­per Agent” from a vis­it­ing yacht cap­tain for her abil­ity to pro­vide what they needed, was awarded a life membership in the group.

“It came as a to­tal sur­prise, I’ve been with the group since its in­cep­tion, on the start-up com­mit­tee back in 2000,” she said.

“Cairns is the su­pery­acht hub for Aus­tralia be­cause we’re the hub to trans­port to South-East Asia and vice versa.

“For­eign flag ves­sels come and visit our shores, spend the money while they’re here and en­joy the des­ti­na­tion.”
