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.
