Border Force board luxury yacht in Darwin Harbour
AUSTRALIAN authorities have boarded a 40m yacht at Stokes Hill Wharf, which is understood to have arrived unannounced, before handing crew members face masks.
Three or four deckhands were on the boat when authorities approached the boat.
The NT News understands authorities attempted to board the vessel with a large gangplank but the low tide meant they had to board from a rubber ducky.
Two members of Australian Border Force boarded the yacht wearing face masks while an Australian biosecurity staff member waited on the wharf in her car.
The crew were told to remain on the boat until further notice.
Border Force have been contacted for comment.
