The beautiful new lines, straight stem and extra-long waterline of the Hanse 418 are key to a fast, safe and comfortable sailing experience – and the only way you’ll be able to own a piece of this incredible yacht is with a SMART Boating boat share opportunity.

Hanses are one of our most popular boat share choices because they are a seriously versatile, speedy, easy to handle yacht – ideal for your family and friends or for couples seeking to escape.

Hanse designers have further enhanced the 418 bravely and efficiently – they’ve taken what everyone loves about the Hanse brand – safe, speedy, easy to handle – and added bonus features like extra space and light-filled, high quality interiors, gas BBQ and oversized cockpit! You could call it a super Hanse!

Beautiful Bayview and Whitsundays location

The Hanse 418 is moored at Bayview Anchorage Marina, the original home of Smart Boating.

Bayview is a state-of-the-art floating marina and your gateway to the stunning waterways of Pittwater and Broken Bay. It’s a beautiful cruise north towards Lion Island, you have Cowan Water and the Hawkesbury River to the west and Pittwater to the south.

Soak up the atmosphere before or after your cruise too with our waterfront cafe and restaurant.

Over winter 2025, 2027 and 2029 (June to October) the Hanse 418 will be based in the beautiful Whitsundays. Fly up and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime exploring this magical tropical paradise on board your very own yacht. For the months that she is based at Hamilton Island Marina, the monthly fee is $1,500.

Exterior - The Ultimate Cruising Yacht

This latest version of the Hanse is easily one of the best yet! It has the self-tacking headsail that Hanse is famous for. This allows you to sail solo or short-handed. Having guests over and want to enjoy relaxing rather than complex wind running?

The self-tacking headsail and lines all running aft mean that the boat is virtually on auto pilot! The crossover sail is actually a hybrid jib/genoa that means you can get traction in pretty much any wind range.

The 418 hasn’t forgotten about light and ventilation either – a big drawcard of the earlier models. The 418 has six hull windows and glass skylights near the companion way. This allows below deck to be drenched in light and opens up the space. It’s airy, clean and sleek – pretty much the ideal yachting experience!

Interior - Light filled sophistication!

Step down below and you’ll find two roomy double cabins. Not only are they big but they have forward layouts and are very private. The generous storage space is one of the upgraded features of the Hanse 418 models.

The cream upholstery and the lightly tanned Italian oak cabinetry are a stylish touch and really open up the space. The Hanse 418 has the classic galley L shape, which makes it easy to create a mini-kitchen. Even better, there’s a top and bottom loading fridge, microwave and stainless steel sink.

There’s no question about its entertainment value. The multimedia system and LED and mood lighting make it almost impossible not to have a great time!

But it’s the many hatches and skylights that are the real stars. Discreetly positioned, they allow light to fill the space and keep everything airy and bright. The sunlight really makes the features sing: the light textures of the woodwork and the elegant, inviting sofa. A fold up saloon table is a clever use of space.

Do you have any questions? Maybe these answers will help.

Yes. Your unit in the Trust is a tradable asset, which you are free to on-sell at any time to anyone for any price.

However, the new owner will have to satisfy certain conditions to protect the remaining owners and pay for their familiarisation session on the boat (cost of $250 incl GST + expenses).

Smart Boating will broker a unit for you for a 5% + GST share of the sale price achieved.

The syndicate agreement runs for five years, at which time the boat is sold and the net proceeds are then returned to each owner according to the equity they hold.

This has the benefit of giving you the best resale value and is before maintenance costs would start to increase on the boat. Many owners stay with us and move on to a new yacht or upgrade to a larger model.

No, basically everything is included.

The only additional costs to bear in mind are the cost for acquiring and installing additional equipment voted upon by the owners themselves, any insurance excess payments that may become due following a claim, stand-by use fees, any contingency fund top ups needed and, for motorboat owners, the cost of fuel used.

Every boat is comprehensively fitted out with all the necessary equipment and luxuries, including cooking utensils, bedding, hot/cold showers, stereo with CD player, iPod connection and cockpit speakers, barbecue, electric fridge and icebox, bimini and boom awning, wind, depth and speed instruments, electric flush toilet, electric anchor winch and safety gear.

In the unlikely event of damage, each owner has signed an agreement to pay for any damage they cause to the boat.

The boat will be fully insured, which should limit this liability to a maximum insurance excess of $2,000.

The boat and equipment are initially covered by a manufacturer’s warranty and there is an allowance in the monthly fee that goes into a sinking fund for unpredictable expenses.

  • We use carefully selected brands and boats that are ideal for multiple owner use and that we believe will achieve the best resale values in five years’ time.
  • We have an office open seven days a week where your boat is berthed and have a team available for any assistance required with berthing or the boat’s administration and operation.
  • We offer the full range of maintenance services from the marina, which prevents the unreliability of contractors who may not care for your boat as we would.
  • We can offer all syndicate owners additional training from qualified instructors.
  • We have an on-water breakdown service available to you throughout Pittwater/Broken Bay/The Hawkesbury River. (Note – charges may apply for this service.)
  • Your boat will always be cleaned and prepared for your use before you arrive with the tanks full, fridge cold, hatches opened and batteries charged – simply walk on and sail off.

This is a common question and really depends on the person at the helm. Luckily for you, a member of the Smart Boating team will be around to jump on board and give you a hand.

Maybe you’re concerned because you don’t know how to sail? To be honest, if you have enough skills to manage a motorboat it would take very little to gain the skills you need to manage a yacht. All our yachts have reliable and convenient in-mast furling.

Our ‘learn to sail a yacht’ courses are great value and perfect to get you up to standard. Or we can arrange one-on-one training to suit your specific needs.

And talking of sailing… have you considered how relaxing sailing is? But can you find peace, quiet and performance on a powerboat, too? Yes, of course you can!

Our Integrity 380 powerboat gets you where you need to go quietly and quickly, at up to 14 knots. This easy to handle motor cruiser boasts the space and comfort you’d expect from a 36+ footer!

No. To ensure the vessel is kept at a high standard and for the safety of the dog and comfort of the other owners, we don’t allow you to bring any animals on board.

Yes – and we even have dedicated Smart Boating buoys in designated areas.


Our boat owners are just like you and they are living their best life. Read what they have to say about their Smart Boating experiences.

“We were amazed at what Smart Boating delivered for our money compared to buying our own boat outright. Both David and Martin are friendly and relaxed, and one of them is always around to help or give advice if I want it. If there are any little problems with the boat, they are always sorted out straight away. “

Mike Weedon, Hanse 345

“We simply walk on – and walk off at the end of the day, and there’s no time wasted maintaining or worrying about the boat – we leave all that to Smart Boating. We were looking for ease of use and that’s what Smart Boating delivers. We get to enjoy all the good bits about owning a boat and we leave all the hard bits to Smart Boating.”

Mark Tyler, Integrity 380

“Our share in ‘Infinity’ has not only given us more time together as a family… it has given us so much pleasure and some very precious memories – at a fraction of the cost of owning our own boat outright.”

Richard Body, Lagoon 38

The boat is always perfect. The people at Smart Boating deliver what they say they are going to deliver – a walk-on walk-off service. And they deliver it every time. We arrive to a clean boat, full of fuel and water, with fresh linen on board. We don’t have to worry about anything. We just head off up Pittwater and relax.”

Megan and Adrian Barnes, Hanse 37

Hi Martin, team. Just a short note to say thank you for a seamless onboarding to Smartboating and Laguna. I have just returned from our maiden voyage/weekend booking, everything was in order and all had a great experience. Congrats on your product and service.

Andrew Riggs, Lagoon 42

“I wanted to say thank you for making the experience so memorable. We have so valued and enjoyed our time on the water with you support and service. We look back as being so fortunate in having Smart Boating look after us.”

Frank Sowden, Integrity 380

Smartboating offers a great product and 6-star service
