Heritage Landing Berths
The CYA aims to display a suitable grouping of classic vessels to represent the heritage of New Zealand wooden boats. The emphasis is on presenting a balanced display from all categories of vessels.
Owners of boats in Heritage Landing must be current members of the CYA (you are warmly invited to become a member if you aren’t already!) and be competent in operating their vessel in and around the marina.
Criteria for Classic Yachts and Launches eligibility to come into the Heritage Landing
- All of the vessels (yachts, launches, and workboats) in Heritage Landing must be in good condition as they are on display, presenting to visitors to Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter an insight into New Zealand’s very important maritime heritage.
- Vessels must have been built in New Zealand
- A very high priority must be given to the vessels being designed in New Zealand.
- Whilst the Classic Yacht Association of New Zealand has a considerable number of very worthy modern classics, with only a few exceptions the vessels in Heritage Landing should have been designed and launched before 1950, K Class excepted.
- Vessels should have a unique or very special story: especially where consideration is being given to vessels that may not otherwise meet the above criteria.
- Vessels applying to come into Heritage Landing for a short-term stay (less than a month) while others are undergoing maintenance need not have to comply to these criteria. Their application will be considered on a case by case basis.
