So what are you waiting for?
SMART Boating Sydney Harbour - Clontarf Marina
Sandy Bay Rd, Clontarf NSW 2093
SMART Boating’s Sydney Harbour boat share fleet is located at Clontarf Marina. 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.
Naturally protected from all-weather directions, this picturesque location in the northeast corner of the bay provides the perfect location for our syndicate owners to explore Sydney Harbour and beyond.
Our current boat share syndicates available at Clontarf can be viewed here.
Easy access, perfect sailing
You’ll enjoy easy access berths for sailing and powered vessels, including walk-on, walk-off pontoons for multihull vessels – a rare find in Sydney.
Boatshare owners with a sailing yacht or catamaran will appreciate not only being on the ocean side of The Spit but also in close proximity to Sydney Heads.
From here you can sail north to explore the waterways of Pittwater and Broken Bay or further afield to Port Stephen and beyond. Alternatively, turn right and you’ll soon be cruising past the famous sandy beaches of Bondi en route to Botany Bay … experience the freedom!
Convenient city harbour lifestyle
Clontarf Marina is conveniently located for exploring Middle Harbour (for sailors the Spit Bridge opens regularly – find the times here) or to cruise round to Bradley’s Head from where you can fully appreciate the magnificent view of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge that awaits.
There are numerous options for waterside dining and endless places to enjoy from the peace and quiet of your own boat. Whatever you choose, this luxury lifestyle will be one you want to share with family and friends again and again!
Clontarf Marina is fully serviced with numerous marine trades on site. There are also toilets and showers available for berth holders to use and there’s ample car parking (which is free to all Northern Beaches Council residents).
