Membership Categories

Membership Categories are defined as follows:

Individual Members

  1. Individual Members are natural persons who have applied and been approved for membership of the association by the Committee in accordance with the Constitution.
  2. Individuals are not Operators.

Operator Members

  1. Operator Members are registered organisations or natural persons who operate or restore one or more tall ships that are, or are intended to be, placed in commercial survey and appropriately insured for sail trainees or passengers, and which have applied and been approved for membership of the association by the Committee in accordance with the Constitution.
  2. Operator members who have more than one vessel whether under restoration or in operation shall pay the fee for the largest vessel.
  3. Operator members that have tall ships under different ownership will be treated as separate operator members and required to apply for membership under each ownership structure.
  4. Operators of vessels that are uninsured or not in the appropriate survey will not be eligible for membership unless their vessels are undergoing restoration (see Operator Eligibility).

Organisation Members

  1. Organisation Members are organisations who are not Individuals or Operators and have applied and been approved for membership of the association by the Committee in accordance with the Constitution.

Operator Eligibility

To be eligible for membership of Tall Ships Australia and New Zealand, operator vessels must comply with the relevant construction, maintenance, safety and crew training requirements of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, or New Zealand Maritime, relevant to the size and class of their particular vessel. They must also carry public liability insurance relative to the requirements of the relevant flag state authority. In Australia, this means a minimum of $20 million. No operator membership will be granted to any non-surveyed, non-commercial vessel.

To assist operators in maintaining best practice, Tall Ships Australia and New Zealand members are provided access to the Sail Training International Safety Management System Template, Basic Safety and Seamanship Training Curriculum, Safety Aloft Guidelines, Safety Management Guidelines and other relevant documentation, as well as information on safety best practice as presented at the annual Sail Training International Conference. Members also have access to fair work rulings on industry employment requirements and general, and specific, award rates applicable in both countries.

Equal Opportunity, Diversity and Child Safety

We are committed to ensuring individuals are treated consistently and equitably irrespective of their gender, ethnicity, political, religious or philosophical allegiance, physical ability, family status, age or sexual orientation. As an industry that actively engages and aims to develop youth in both Australia and New Zealand we are committed to protecting the rights of all children, and to creating and promoting a safe and positive environment for children.

Tall Ships Australia and New Zealand requires that member organisations demonstrate they are taking their duty of care seriously and are committed to safeguarding children from harm.
