Join the CYANZ

The Classic Yacht Association of New Zealand (Inc.) is an incorporated society formed in 1995 dedicated to:

  • Promoting the ownership, preservation and restoration of classic yachts and launches,
  • Reflecting the significant role harbour and coastal sea craft have played in the development of New Zealand communities,
  • Encouraging the fellowship that grows and exists between all men and women who delight in the pleasure of the sea and craft that sail those seas.

We encourage all Wooden Classic vessels and welcome owners of Launches, Yachts, Modern Classic and Spirit of Tradition vessels and anyone who is interested in historic and classic vessels.

Please read the Classic Vessel Policy
