Re: Aussies owning a boat in New Zealand


1. Only citizens of New Zealand can register a yacht. It is not a legal requirement unless they want to head offshore. If clearing customs, the yacht is subject to Category 1 requirements. So, as an Aussie, you could get N.Z. citizenship and keep the yacht on the register or


I think permanent residents can also register their boats in NZ, not just citizens. It is an option we are considering when we buy our next boat. Maybe NZ permanent residency is a potential option to explore as an Aussie?

Re: Aussies owning a boat in New Zealand

Anyone who has the right to live permanently in NZ can register a yacht there. That includes Aussies, you don't even need to be a permanent resident.
