I can't find any info on the MSA site or YNZ but customs, who administer final departure have this to say.


Positively, socially deviant.

Of course you won't find anything Pete. They are the worst Websites ever created. YNZ has got to take the most useless web award surely.


For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

yachting nz

buy the yachting nz book for all the specs and requirements. About $ 30 or photocopy someones - just the relevent pages! I guess the website is so useless because they want you to buy the book! Just back from the Wellington to Nelson race - great sailing for the long weekend! Boat is a mess better go and clean it up!

Reading the Australiawide listings is interesting to this North American. Adjusting to $USD prices, my impression was that boats built in the region were going at reasonable or even outstanding prices (as seen from the buyer's view, relative to N American boats) while boats brought in from outside were priced somewhat higher than they are back in the States).

Another impression is that there seems to be a general absence of 'standard layout' for a given size boat. E.g. perhaps 75% of all 9.5-11M boats you find in the Baltic have a quarter cabin & quarter head, opposing sit-down forward facing chart table and L galley, and opposing settees followed by V-berth. In America, almost everything that's 12M+ LOA and with a center cockpit has an aft-cabin walk-thru; step-over aft cabins seem to have all but disappeared about two decades ago. The brokerage sampling, if representative, suggests layouts there are more eclectic...which must make shopping a bit more difficult for someone with specific layout tastes. Of course, the same could be said for hull & deck construction; something for everyone it seems.

A Westsail 32 owner would LOVE to list his boat for $75K USD in the States...but probably never expect above 50. Sounds like a good way to pay for a South Pacific cruise.<g>

According to Maritime New Zealand, the Cat 1 requirement no longer exists. The following is a response to an enquiry I sent:

Hi Carl

Thanks for your enquiry. While foreign pleasure craft were subject to NZ checks prior to departure, this is no longer the case. If you would like to know more about the category 1 standards that apply to NZ pleasure craft departing for overseas, Jim Lott is the appropriate contact or try

Subject: Foreign yachts visiting New Zealand


I am planning a trip from the US to New Zealand during the next year
and I've heard that my sailboat will need to meet Category 1
requirements before I will be granted clearance to leave New
Zealand. However, I haven't found anything that tells me what the
requirements are.

My boat is registered in Alaska and is USCG documented.

I will appreciate any clarification you can provide.
