Australia’s Leading Boatshare Company

Jeanneau 479 Boatshare

Cruise 2 Locations

Smart Boating is expanding the brands they offer in shared ownership and are delighted to announce the addition of a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 479 to their fleet.

A beautiful offshore cruiser from this world renowned  marque – the Jeanneau 479 will enable you to cruise everywhere in elegance and comfort.

Our first syndicate Jeanneau 479 yacht “Smitten” has her home base at Clontarf Marina in Middle Harbour and will meet the increasing demand from Sydneysiders looking for a quality yachtshare for exploring and enjoying the Harbour and beyond. However an added bonus of this syndicate is that this boat will also be available for her share owners to sail in the spectacular Whitsunday Islands.

Our larger yachts sell out quickly so if this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for, act now, register your interest and be sailing with Smart Boating in 2017!

The Best of TWO Worlds

The Best of TWO Worlds

Sail in Multiple Locations

During years 1, 3 and 5* of the 5 year term, our Jeanneau 479 will be available in 2 of the most desired sailing destinations that Australia offers. For the 7 months of the year from October to April she’ll be based at our new base at Clontarf Marina, Middle Harbour.

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

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.

Sail in the Winter Sunshine

An added bonus for owners in this syndicate is that in 2018, 2020 and 2022* at the end of May “Smitten” will seamlessly move to the excellent marina facilities at Hamilton Island which lies at the heart of the spectacular Whitsunday Islands.

Simply fly direct from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane and within minutes you can be on board your own luxury yacht, which will cleaned, fuelled and ready to board.

No need for a boat briefing as you would with chartering – simply stow your gear, provision and sail away.

There’s plenty to do in this sailing paradise where deserted beaches, spectacular corals and abundant marine life created treasured memories every day. Once your holiday in this spectacular cruising ground comes to an end, simply pack up and head home – no fuss, no hassle, no cleaning, no nothing! You really can unwind and relax – Smart Boating takes care of everything.

And of course when Sydney starts warming up from October, your Jeanneau 479 returns to Clontarf for the summer season. Now that is SMART BOATING!

For those looking to gain offshore experience there may also be the option to be on board for the delivery trip.

*In 2019 and 2021 the boat will remain in Sydney all year. Bookings for Whitsunday’s use are via preference ballot. Please enquire for full details.

Modern and Balanced

The powerful, balanced and modern hull designed by Philippe Briand combines a long waterline length and hard chine for speed and comfort at sea.

Flush hatches and integrated running rigging give the deck a sleek look and makes moving around the deck safer

Even if all your crew are inexperienced you will be fine… all halyards and sheets lead aft to the helm positions – which are moved far aft to keep the cockpit as clear as possible.

You’ll find the cockpit spacious and comfortable with great visibility. The full function table provides useful storage, lighting for al fresco dining and an icebox so that refreshing drink is always close at hand.

The wide drop down aft swimming platform adds to the big boat feel at anchor, makes for easy tender boarding, provides access to the sea when swimming and encloses the cockpit safely when you’re sailing.

The new spacious interior is a fabulous modern apartment style with light oak cabinetry and an attractive contrasting dark oak laminate floor.


8 hull ports & long deckhouse windows give you panoramic views from the saloon. Plenty of opening ports and flush deck hatches provide great ventilation too.

Luxurious materials are used throughout and these are enhanced through subtle yet practical LED lighting.

The master suite is a particularly special feature with island bed and ensuite electric head and shower.

Storage is plentiful too making this yacht perfect for longer cruises and live aboard.

The Sun Odyssey 479 really is a stunning looking, luxurious, comprehensively appointed and exciting yacht to sail.
