Sail two stunning locations

Lagoon is the world’s number one catamaran manufacturer.

SMART Boating is delighted to announce the availability of a limited number of existing syndicate shares in our Clontarf-based / Whitsundays travelling Lagoon 42.

These fabulous boats are loved by their passionate owners – and it’s no wonder! Lagoon’s unique expertise in innovative catamaran design makes it the world’s number one catamaran manufacturer.

Shares will be available to use from November 2022 and represent fabulous value for a Lagoon 42 that is based in TWO magnificent locations.

Sydney’s Middle Harbour AND Hamilton Island!

The boat next travels to The Whitsundays for the winter of 2024 where she’ll be based at Hamilton Island so you can fly straight in and be with your boat within minutes.

Not only will you enjoy the perfect live-aboard layout of the magnificent four-cabin and four-bedroom layout during long, lazy summer days sailing in and around Sydney Harbour

. . . but your Lagoon 42 will seamlessly travel to The Whitsundays, affording you the opportunity to sail two of the most desirable locations in the world, all on one boat !

From November to June, she’ll be based at beautiful Sydney Harbour, and then your Lagoon will seamlessly move to the excellent marina facilities at Hamilton Island, where she will be based from July to October, in the heart of the spectacular Whitsunday Islands.

Head North for Winter Sun

Simply fly direct to the excellent marina facilities at Hamilton Island, which lies at the heart of this stunning sailing paradise, and within minutes you can be on board your Lagoon 42, which will be cleaned, fuelled, ready to board and sail away.

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

Whether you’ve come to sail, dive or simply relax, 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! SMART Boating takes care of it all.

And of course, when Sydney starts to warm up again, your Lagoon returns to Pittwater for the summer season. Now that is SMART BOATING!

Performance - Fast Sailing

The Lagoon 42 offers easy, comfortable yet speedy sailing with that extra capacity and those additional features we have come to expect from the global leaders in catamaran manufacture.

This boat is comprehensively equipped inside and out. She is the perfect live-aboard model, offering four cabins each with their own ensuite bathroom.

Exterior - Setting new standards

The Lagoon 42 is built with weight saving in mind. The hull, deck and bulkheads are infusion moulded. With less buoyancy required forward, the bows are finer, improving the wave piercing power.

The raised steering station gives you a panoramic view, yet you’re well protected. And with all controls within easy reach … this is an easy catamaran to sail.

Interior - Spacious, easy living

The saloon blends with the cockpit when the door and sliding saloon window are open – but you can close them anytime. As with all Lagoons, there’s heaps of space for relaxing and entertaining.

The vertical windows optimise space and light yet maximise protection from the sun. Interior woodwork is Alpi – a beautiful lightweight composite material.

The aft cabins boast island double beds and benefit from a bathroom with separate shower. Forward cabins have side access beds and an ensuite combined head and shower.

A U-shaped galley affords extensive storage space and wide work surfaces and is oriented towards the external cockpit, making entertaining a breeze.

Your Investment

A 10% share costs $99,500 with a monthly maintenance fee of $1,057 + fuel.

The boat returns to Sydney November 2022 so she’ll be here and ready to use for this summer!

What you’ll enjoy as a SMART Boating owner:

  • 34 days boating per year
  • Unlimited standby days

Your monthly management fee includes:

  • Professional management
  • Marina/mooring fees
  • Comprehensive insurance
  • Servicing, cleaning and maintenance
  • Annual slip, anti-foul and hull polishing
  • Linen and laundry
  • Gas
  • Contingency fund for repairs and equipment replacement
  • Relocation of the boat for winter 2024 between Sydney Harbour and Hamilton Island

The cost of diesel fuel used is extra and is charged based on engine hours used.

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 until November 2025, 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 370

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
