Have you considered Charter Yacht Ownership?

Charter Investment

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

Owning a yacht in a charter company is often described as a smart way of ownership.

Especially for a busy family and those that like the idea of getting a return on their investment.
There are many charter companies scattered through Australia that offer various Yacht Management programs that deliver returns to investors while having access to their yacht.

Sydney By Sail, our award-winning sister company established in March 1995, is a recognized leader in providing exceptional sailing experiences to a diverse clientele, including corporate, domestic, and tourist markets. Located in Darling Harbour at the National Maritime Museum in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, ensures excellent visibility and accessibility.

The charter fleet consists of a carefully curated selection of new and near new luxury yachts, ranging in length from 31 to 45 feet. 

Sydney BY Sail pride themselves in the meticulous maintenance of the fleet and have a proven track record of delivering positive returns to yacht owners. Owners benefit not only from attractive financial returns, tax breaks, and discounted berthing but also from the flexibility to enjoy their yacht for personal use, with the peace of mind that it will be professionally cared for.

Sydney By Sail provides a range of sailing activities and unique sailing experiences including :

  • Sail training to IYT International Yacht Training accreditation. IYT curriculum is recognised in more countries throughout the world than any other sail training provider.
  • Skippered Yacht charters
  • Corporate team building events, regattas and treasure hunts from 4 to 300 pax.
  • Romantic overnight packages.
