The luxury yacht Bold was denied entry to New Zealand due to COVID19 restrictions.


The yacht planned to visit the America’s Cup and perform refit works afterward.


The yacht didn’t receive visas for the full crew and was supposed to let go 30% (of the crew).


It was planning on spending more than $50k for a refit, including critical safety works.


Vessels can gain approval to enter New Zealand, under the condition that they spend more than $50k.


But’s Bold’s crew is too big, to comply with all COVID19 regulations.


According to Bold’s captain, the yacht will now head to Australia to have the works done.
