Charter Investment

Have you considered Charter Yacht Ownership?

Having your Yacht in a charter fleet is a clever and cost effective way of owning a yacht.

Sydney By Sail (sister company to Performance Cruising Yachts, Australian importers of Dufour and Elan Yachts) has been established since March 1995. It has since been successfully managing charter yachts and providing great financial returns and lifestyle benefits for their owners.

Sydney by Sail directly manages the commissioning process so you know it is done correctly to the factory specifications.

Sydney By Sail provides a range of sailing activities to the domestic leisure market, the corporate market and the tourism market, these include :

  • Sail training to IYT International Yacht Training accreditation. IYT curriculum is recognised in more countries throughout the world than any other sail training provider.
  • Yacht charter with a skipper or bareboat
  • Corporate team building events, regattas and treasure hunts from 4 to 300 pax.
  • Romantic overnight packages
  • Daily sailing trips, twilight sailing, whale watching and coastal sails.

Approximately 80% of the time that a Sydney By Sail yacht engages in one of these activities, the yacht is under the control of one of our commercially qualified skippers. Therefore wear and tear is kept to a minimum.
