A proposal before the Auckland Council in New Zealand seeks a fee for foreign yachts that anchor in the area, according to a report in the New Zealand Herald.
Boats over 40m would be charged $23 per meter per day, meaning a 50m yacht would be charged $1,150 a day.
The money would got toward paying for the cost of the harbor master who oversees the Hauraki Gulf area, according to the Herald.
Foreign vessels currently pay to moor or dock at the cities facilities. The tax would also cover cargo ships and cruise ships unable to dock at the city wharves.
Auckland will host the 2021 America’s Cup.
