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.





What started as a ‘yacht spotter’ hobby, turned into a fast-growing yachting site with thousands of unique daily visitors.

In 2009 SuperYachtFan in its current format was published online and soon the focus changed from ‘yacht photos’ to ‘yacht owners’, creating the Super Yacht Owners Register. A database with more than 1,450 yacht owners.

This was an instant success as many people around the world are interested in, or curious about, these multi-million dollar yachts and their wealthy owners. (Luxury travels of the Billionaire Boys Club)
