The elegant Twilight within our monohull fleet is our fourth Pittwater-based 45ft Hanse.

Twilight has everything required to be the perfect cruiser. Her lines, balanced sail plan and performance-oriented underwater appendage are the creation of Judel/Vrolijk & Co, the best yacht designers in the world.

Twilight is not only fast but easy to sail in any weather.

Flexible locations

Twilight is based in two of Australia’s most desired sailing locations: the tranquil surrounds of Pittwater as well as the stunning marine environment of the Queensland Whitsunday Islands.

During summers Twilight will be based at Bayview, giving you immediate access to the exclusive bays of Pittwater and only a short sail to Sydney Harbour.

Then every second winter (July to October) Twilight will seamlessly relocate to Hamilton Island, one of the most sought-after locations in the Whitsundays in Queensland. A quick direct flight to Hamilton Island means that you can board your yacht within minutes and explore the spectacular corals and beaches of the Whitsundays for up to 10 days at a time.

Exterior - A superior sailing experience!

The German-built Hanse 445 is bold and confident in its design for such a large, sturdy boat Twilight is amazingly responsive and very simple to operate. She has a well-designed keel, rig and rudder, but it’s the electric power winches and self-tacking headsail that really makes the sailing easy!

Twin black GRP steering wheels, flush deck with hidden control lines leading to the helmsman in the cockpit makeTwilight a joy to skipper One ofTwilight’s stand out entertaining features is the large teak swim platform and gas BBQ so you can cook up a treat for guests. And of course there’s a hot and cold shower and swim ladder.

Interior - large and luxurious!

The boat’s interior is sophisticated and solid. The cabinets are polished American Cherry and there’s tasteful oak flooring. Soft and inviting chocolate Portofino leather upholstery adds a touch of style. With multiple hatches and windows, the interior is exceedingly well ventilated and allows abundant natural light to flood in.

There’s a TV and multimedia sound system including Bluetooth link and cockpit remote control meaning you can enjoy music anywhere. A large dual entry refrigerator, Nespresso coffee machine, gas BBQ on deck, microwave and a three-burner stove mean one thing – entertaining! The enormous cockpit provides wonderful visibility and plenty of room to move. There’s a dodger, bimini (and link sheet) in the cockpit which means you can relax there no matter what the weather’s doing.

You’ll enjoy the three double cabins – and two bathrooms both with electric toilets.

Light-filled, roomy and extraordinarily comfortable, Twilight’s interior really is luxurious and intimate.

Unlike other boat share arrangements, Smart Boating boat shares are an EQUITY purchase with a CAPITAL RETURN to you when the boat is sold at the end of the term.

This Smart Boating syndicate runs for five years, after which time the boat will be sold and all owners receive an equal share of the net sale price. If you want or need to exit the syndicate early there is no penalty and we can even help facilitate the sale of your share.

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
