Superyacht Queensland has developed a fact sheet for superyachts visiting Queensland for the Commonwealth Games.
An influx of superyachts is expected for the games with many Australian superyacht owners taking advantage of this opportunity to cruise north to enjoy Queensland’s hospitality and weather.
With a range of VIP events on offer and the excitement of the games themselves, the Gold Coast is set to be the place to be.
The fact sheet has been developed as a guide to visiting superyachts. It provides information on the games themselves, regulations regarding entering Australia, customs clearing ports, berthing availability, refit and repair facilities in the region, information regarding access to the Great Barrier Reef and cruising itineraries to make the most of being in this part of the world. Contact details are included for the key superyacht agents in the region who are able to assist with any queries, visas, provisioning etc. that vessels may require.
