Sydney Yacht Charter

Sydney is the most populous city in Australia and the state capital of New South Wales. Sydney is located on Australia's south-east coast of the Tasman Sea and has around 70 sparkling beaches in close proximity.

Embark on a Sydney yacht charter and explore a great city. The heart of Sydney beats with a pride and passion that's all its own. The city offers an invigorating blend of the old and the new, the raw and the refined. Sydney is blessed with long stretches of heavenly beaches and a pleasant climate that sees over 300 sunny days a year. It is for this reason, that a yacht charter around Sydney and Pittwater, is a great idea. The views of Sydney harbor and the opera house are certainly worth a mint but what better way to see the sights of Sydney harbor, than from the deck of your own charter boat? The entire Sydney harbor is protected by the headlands providing a perfectly sheltered cruising ground for motorboats and sailing yachts; even for the most amateur yachtsmen.

The hundreds of bays and inlets provide great anchorages and you'll always find a quality restaurant, close by. One of the highlights of cruising Sydney is the atmosphere and spirit, which can be found in some of Australia's most impressive yacht clubs and marinas. The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is situated on Pittwater, by Sydney's northern beaches. It is one of Australia's most prestigious yacht clubs with long and colorful history. The marina is the largest in New South Wales and houses some exclusive luxury yachts. This marina now offers yacht charter guests some of the best marina facilities in Australia.

As yachting is very popular in Sydney and Australia there are many charter yachts that are based here year round, as well as superyachts that visit the area seasonally. You can charter sailing yachts, motor yachts and superyachts for extended charters as well as hire luxury yachts for corporate or business events.

You don’t have to travel far from Sydney City to put yourself into the Royal National Park or the fringes of the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage Area. These are wild and rugged tourist attractions where you can go on a real nature tour and bushwalk and hike in rainforests, wetlands and eucalypt woodlands, all cradled by sandstone gorges.
