America’s Cup dockage requests open

ADVERTISEMENT

More than 100 vessels have inquired about dockage for the 36th America’s Cup in New Zealand in 2020, according to Duthie Lidgard, director of Asia Pacific Superyachts NZ.

John Matla, marina manager for the official marinas of the event – Viaduct Marina and Silo Marina in Auckland, New Zealand – said the marinas will formally ask in July for Expressions of Interest from those seeking dockage at the marinas between Oct. 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021.

The EOI program will be advertised through international boating media, and Matla expects it to wrap up by the end of August, or sooner if possible.

For those who have already sent their contact details and formal expression of interest, Matla said the following information is needed for confirmation: booking period, electrical requirements, and other specifications.
