New Zealand opens to yachts from Australia
Great news from ‘Down Under’! A newly implemented air travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand means yacht owners and guests will now be able to enjoy the pristine waters of New Zealand once more. Yachts can access the remote Pacific country under existing sea border exemptions for vessels, and the yacht owners, plus friends and family, can now fly to join the yacht via the new travel bubble.
Cruising craft and superyachts departing from Australia can gain entry to New Zealand under an exemption for vessels with NZ$50,000 (approx. €30,000) in service or refit bookings. Owners’ family and friends who have an Australian passport, or alternatively have been allowed into Australia and spent 14 days post-isolation there, can fly to New Zealand through the Australian/New Zealand trans-Tasman bubble and join their vessel.
New Zealand is a highly desirable sailing and refit location, as well as one of the safest places in the world. With Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s Covid-19 response hailed as the gold standard, the country has not had any community transmission for months, and daily life is almost entirely back to normal. As well as safety, New Zealand also offers many benefits for superyacht charters, such as straight-forward entry rules, as well as incredible natural sights and local attractions to enjoy. Wander along golden beaches, explore the breathtaking scenery, and admire the native wildlife – there is so much to see in this remote oasis.
“We have been waiting over a year now and are very excited that yachts and their owners, leaving from Australia can come to New Zealand. It presents the opportunity for cruising and superyachts to enjoy New Zealand’s cruising grounds, and superyacht regattas; the New Zealand Millennium Cup and the various regattas planned for 2022 by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron,” says CEO of the NZ Marine Industry Association, Peter Busfield.
So, why not make the most of the new travel bubble and make New Zealand your next must-see charter destination.
