How long can a foreign vessel stay in South Africa?

Does anyone know how long can a foreign vessel stay in South Africa before being subject to import taxes and/or VAT? I find inconsistent information on noonsite.

Can anybody from South Africa answer this question?

Thanks!

Just was over a year in South Africa... there are no (more) regulations concerning the stay of a boat - the vat issues are rumors... only you have to go out every 3 months .. or apply for a special visa....

Anybody with the feet on the ground in Cape Town can confirm this?

Thanks!

Nope ... these are normally South Africans ... but there is another swiss guy in the RCYC which is working since years on his boat... or just mail to the RCYC - they are very kind....
