With Smart Boating you can now chose from four amazing locations

Not only has Smart Boating has been operating for over 12 years and is Australia’s leading boat share company with a fleet of yachts, catamarans and motor cruisers…

…but we now also offer owners the choice of sailing in four incredible locations: Sydney’s Middle Harbour, Pittwater, Hamilton Island in The Whitsundays, as well as beautiful Bobbin Head.

Our original Smart Boating location, at Bayview Anchorage Marina, is situated in the peaceful cruising ground of Pittwater and Broken Bay.

This area is similar in size to Sydney Harbour – but MUCH less crowded.

If you want an exhilarating sail, the wind here is pretty reliable most afternoons and there’s generally very little swell

Smart Boating’s Sydney Harbour fleet is located at Clontarf Marina.

Fully refurbished in 2017, Sydney’s newest and most prestigious marina is located at Sandy Bay on the northeastern shore of Middle Harbour, and on the ocean side of Spit Bridge. 

From Clontarf, Smart Boating owners can explore the best views of Sydney from the water, entertain friends or perhaps soak up the atmosphere of the iconic events that the Harbour is famous for –  The Sydney to Hobart Race start, New Years Eve fireworks and the Australia Day celebrations to name just a few.

An added bonus for owners in many of our Smart Boating syndicates is the ability to sail one boat in two of the most desired sailing locations that Australia offers.

During winter their boats are seamlessly moved from either Clontarf or Pittwater to the excellent marina facilities at Hamilton Island, which lies at the heart of the spectacular Whitsunday Islands.


Whether you chose to sail in peaceful Pittwater, stunning Sydney Harbour, beautiful Bobbin Head, or even head to the Whitsundays in Winter, Smart Boating is the smart way for you to get out on the water enjoying the boat you dreamed of for a fraction of the traditional cost.

Take a look at what’s available now and launching soon.
