Imagine a 7 day voyage on-board the only private residential ship at sea, The World


Launched in 2002, The World® is the largest privately owned, residential yacht on earth with 165 luxury Residences. A diverse group of Residents from 19 countries own the homes onboard and share interests in world cultures, history and adventure, and exploring fascinating destinations. They circumnavigate the globe every two to three years following an extraordinary itinerary that they select. In-depth expeditions and one-of-a-kind experiences are complemented by world-class amenities and impeccable service.

At our event, we will be inviting you to bid on a seven night voyage on this amazing yacht and your winning bid will include:

  • Travel in a luxurious two-bedroom residence for 4 guests.  The World’s Two-Bedroom Residences truly feel like home, with spacious living and dining areas, en-suite bathrooms in both the master and guest bedrooms, and ample veranda space.
  • All meals and beverages aboard the Ship including select wines, spirits and champagnes from around the world.
  • All gratuities and all port charges.

If you would like more information on The World® before our event on February 28th, please visit or e-mail Joe O’Sullivan

The Ballet Foundation of New Zealand would like to sincerely thank The World® for this very generous donation.  As you can imagine, they receive numerous requests for auction donations each year and the Ballet Foundation of New Zealand was chosen as one of only a select few from around the globe to receive a multi-night voyage from The World® to help us raise money to support Ballet in New Zealand.
