Leaders in Boat Share

We are the leaders in boat share. We have reinvented the ‘walk on walk off’ concept that so many busy Australians are embracing. And we love that we provide more ways for people to get out on the water, more often.

In the past, owning a luxury yacht, power cruiser or catamaran was reserved for the very wealthy. But now we help parents, young executives, time-poor business people, empty nesters and retirees live the kind of lifestyle they only imagined.

And with four incredible Smart Boating locations, you too can comfortably sail (or cruise) Sydney Harbour, Pittwater, The Whitsundays and beyond.

Why choose a Smart Boating boat share?

If you have previously owned a boat, you know the amount of work involved in maintenance and management. There’s no doubt it would have taken up a lot of your valuable leisure time.

Understandably, you’d prefer to spend the free time you have on the water with your friends, family and workmates!

As an equity share owner in a truly sensational boat, you’ll experience the total leisure and freedom owning a boat brings, but none of the exhausting hard work that goes with it. Welcome to the world of boat share.

An enviable lifestyle

Shared boat ownership is the ultimate way to invest in a boat and the most affordable way to make your boating dreams possible.

Boat share really is having it all – the experience and excitement of being a boat owner with absolutely none of the stress that goes with maintaining it.

Remember, you’re not sharing your boat with people, you’re only sharing the cost. The boat is 100% yours, 10% of the time. Which means you can live an enviable lifestyle with huge value… for a fraction of the cost.

More time on the water

Did you know the average Australian boat owner spends only 20 days per year out on their boat? Add in the hours and hours it takes to maintain the boat, and suddenly boat share is looking like an excellent option.

For an equity share and a monthly fee, you’ll enjoy 34 days out on the water and unlimited stand-by days doing what you love, stress free.

Imagine sitting under the stars, glass of champagne in hand, watching the fireworks on New Year’s Eve… from the comfort of your luxury syndicate boat.

Our low monthly maintenance fees cover:

  • Turnaround service after each use
  • Administration and management
  • Comprehensive insurance
  • Marina and mooring fees
  • Scheduled servicing and maintenance and all predictable outgoings
  • Annual slip, anti-foul and hull polishing
  • Linen and laundry, full professional cleaning

Smart Boating owners say they appreciate the support they receive from staff at the marina, particularly when they’re helped with lines as they go out and valet parking on the way back in. It’s all part of the exemplary service you’ll receive from the Smart Boating team as a boat share owner.

More than just a new luxury boat

Of course, as a part of the boat share syndicate, you’ll get a shiny current model yacht, sporty motor cruiser or luxury catamaran. But you’ll also get so much more.

Our boats come fully equipped with features such as tenders, outboards, coffee machines, paddle boards, TVs, air conditioning, bluetooth sound systems…

because it’s the little extras that make all the difference to your on-board experience.

Which boat is right for me?

Power or sail, mono or multihull? Can’t choose?

We have a proven process to help you select the right boat for you, but here are a few questions to ask yourself first:

Do you enjoy the excitement of a yacht that heels when the wind gets up, or do you prefer the level sailing and additional space that a multihull provides?

What type of boating lifestyle do you want to experience?

Are you planning ocean sailing or long-distance travel on your yacht? Do you like the simplicity of turning on an engine to start your journey?

Is playing with sails and navigating to angles part of the adventure for you, or are you a sailor looking for a multihull option that gives you and your guests more entertaining space, lots of accommodation and flat, level sailing?
