Re: Buying a boat in New Zealand

Correct. Cat 1 is only required for NZ registered vessels

Re: Buying a boat in New Zealand

Supplementary question: I am Canadian, thinking of buying a boat in NZ. Have my eye on a foreign-flagged vessel that has yet to be formally imported. If I buy it, does the GST/duty thing apply?.

Might be better to ask Customs and IRD than to rely on dodgy forum advice.

Re: Buying a boat in New Zealand

FYI, Connemara. I have a well kept Mason 53 available here in the Bay of Islands. She is currently U.S. registered (no Cat 1 required). She also has been fully imported to New Zealand, so no GST/Duty taxes to be paid. She can leave and return to New Zealand as often as you like without any taxes owing. You could Canadian flag her and be on your way. Great place to live aboard down here. Been doing it for 16 years. Pic are in my album on my profile page if you want to have a look. All the best with the search. Let me know if you want to discuss in more detail. Cheers.

Re: Buying a boat in New Zealand

I think the situation is that a boat may visit without paying duty as it is not imported. However that stay is limited.
If it is sold in NZ duty applies and that works out around 20% including gst.
I don't think there is any gst refund for non residents on departure.
Duty and tax would not apply if sold offshore after clearance eg on transit to Fiji if the vessel had not been imported.
Whether it would work to simply go 12 miles offshore having received clearance under one owner who then is not permitted to stop elsewhere in NZ and make a new entry under a new owner and then be subject to the same terms as a new arrival is debatable. Simply going out of territorial waters would not count as leaving NZ as some transits may do this simply on a coastal cruise. Whether the change in ownership on the high seas would be accepted in this way would require specialist rulings.
If the ownership involved different nationalities and a change of registration may be another complication i.e doing this in transit if required prior to arrival.

Re: Buying a boat in New Zealand

If a gent were going on vacation, to see New Zealand, plus an old sailing mate. Where might the best areas be to explore, to look @ boats for sale also?
I'm LONG overdue to listen to that thing telling me to go on walkabout (DOH!).
