With a boat share you can sail your dream yacht… and still have spare cash and spare time to enjoy your other leisure pursuits.Read More
How often do you drive past Sydney Harbour and see the same expensive yachts sitting unused on moorings week after week, month after month?
Do you wonder how often they go out?
The reality in most cases is… not very often.
Certainly not as often as the owner imagined when he or she bought his expensive boat!
People today are busy and as much as they would love to be out boating more often… modern life can get in the way.
If this sounds like you, a yacht syndicate might just be the perfect solution.
After all if you are only going to use your boat for 10% of the year, it makes sense to only own 10% of it.
This leaves you with spare cash and spare time to enjoy other leisure activities.
AND because yacht share is hugely less expensive than outright ownership, you don’t feel you need to be on your yacht every weekend to justify the cost.

A Smart way for you to get out on the water enjoying the yacht you dreamed of for a fraction of the traditional cost.
Smart Boating have enabled us, our Children, Grandchildren, friends & relations to go sailing (and fishing) in one of the most beautiful sea inlets in the world. To be able to step on board on a pre- arranged date and sail on a quality boat is fantastic. All this is achieved through a syndication arrangement that is fair, good value for money and well proven over the years. Well done Smart Boating and thank you. Piers & Joanne Codling
Having always wanted to own a yacht in Sydney, joining a yacht share has made it an affordable reality for us right now – rather than years off in the future.
The on-going management also means the boat is always properly maintained and we get all of the fun, and none of the hassle of boat ownership. Sean and Zoe Beavis
The day of our initial briefing and first sail of our new Hanse on Pittwater, we shared the water for twenty minutes with a huge pod of dolphins.
It was surely an omen for wonderful sailing days to come! The staff of Smart Boating have always been courteous and the boat ready and immaculate for our mini holidays aboard. Joining a Smart Boating syndicate was the best thing we have ever done. Peter and Helen Finn
We really liked the Hanse yachts, a dream to sail, quick, responsive, modern styling and the self-tacking headsail is so good as we mainly sail the boat with just ourselves as crew.
We enjoy sailing our Hanse and have had no issues with Smart Boating from an operational standpoint – only good things to report!
We have the utmost confidence in David and his team. Paul and Rozel McArthy.
