Yachting New Zealand are looking to run a Cat 3 inspection day from 8am on Saturday September 29, with an inspector available at Westhaven Marina. The cost of the inspection will be $150 (inc gst), saving boat owners an average of $100.

If a boat fails the inspection on this day, it will go into the regular system and an inspector would need to be rebooked. Please note, Yachting New Zealand require a minimum of 10 boats for this special price and dedicated day to go ahead.

To register your interest, please email ccinfo@coastalclassic.co.nz advising your boat name and contact details, or phone Emily Flynn 021 111 0072 no later than Friday August 10.

For advice regarding Cat 3 for your boat, please contact: Yachting New Zealand technical and safety officer Angus Willison on 021 560 011 or visit the safety regulations page on our website.
