Yesterday, Commodore Bainimarama, Fiji's Prime Minister, announced in his annual budget that the duty-free stay for yachts is back to where it used to be-12 months with an extention to 18 months upon application.
The 9 month out of country rule has been dropped also, so if you cut your Fiji stay short to run to NZ for the summer, you can return without penalty come fall.
Further, on 1 January, there is supposed to be released a 'National Yacht Policy', which will address, amoungst other things, 'superyachts'.
This is very much a major step in the right direction in recognising the importance of yachts to Fiji's tourism sector!
I'll get both the Cruising Wiki here

, updated next week.
