Why sail with us
Pittwater’s location is ideal for holiday sailing. Protected from the stormy ocean waves, you will sail on gentle ripple on most days. Our boats are equipped with all safety gear required. We will take you through a safety briefing and make sure you know where all the safety gear is located and know how to use it. And in the very unlikely event of an emergency help is only a call away.
Every cruising boat in our fleet provides you with tidy cabins, entertaining space, fresh water, toilet with shower, kitchen, fridge, BBQ and much more — your trip will be exceptionally comfortable!
Even though our runabouts cannot offer as many facilities as cruising boats do due to small size, they are also very comfortable and they are fast!
Get the best value for money with our highly completive prices, off-season prices, cheaper midweek rates and flexible start/finish time.
Save up to 40% from single day rate with progressive discounts for multiday charters — the longer your charter, the lower the day rate!
Share expenses with your friends on the boats accommodating up to 12 people by day or up to 8 by night.

Qualification required for bareboat charter
An adequate experience is a must, on top of that boat licence is required to drive fast boats.
We expect you to have boating experience and know what you are doing: rules of road, basic navigation skills, safe mooring and anchoring, emergency procedures, safety gear etc. In regards to whether or not a boat licence required, please check the boat description.
Please note that prior to your departure we would need to check your competency for the sake of your and your guests safety.
