Smart Boating Sydney Harbour - Clontarf Marina

Smart Boating’s Sydney Harbour boat share fleet is located at Clontarf Marina. Fully refurbished in 2017, Sydney’s 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 weather from all directions, this picturesque location in the north-east corner of the bay provides the perfect location for our syndicate owners to explore Sydney Harbour and beyond.

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.

Boat share 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. Can you see yourself on a sleek Integrity 340 or an elegant Hanse 445 on the Sydney Harbour waters?

From here you can sail north to explore the waterways of Pittwater and Broken Bay or follow the coast to distant destinations like Port Stephens. Alternatively, head south and you’ll soon be cruising past the famous sandy beaches of Bondi en route to Botany Bay… you have the freedom to decide!

Convenient city harbour lifestyle

Clontarf Marina is spectacularly located on the Harbour side of Middle Harbour. The opening and closing of Spit Bridge wouldn’t affect you at all when you’re setting sail from Clontarf! Or you can cruise round to Bradley’s Head where you can fully appreciate the magnificent view of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Sydney’s iconic landmarks look even better from the bow of your own boat.

There are numerous options for waterside dining and endless places you can enjoy from the peace and quiet of your private vessel. Whatever you choose, this luxury lifestyle will be one you want to share with the people you love again and again!
