Boat Hire on Iconic Sydney Harbour, Wide Range of Catamarans, Boats and Yachts Available For Hire!

Sydney Harbour is one of the most iconic cityscapes on Earth, few can match it for its sheer beauty. The Sydney Opera House, The Sydney Harbour Bridge, the skyscrapers, and water itself creates a stunning backdrop when viewed from the harbour. 

Here at Eastcoast Sailing, we believe that the best way to take in the Sydney Harbour views is from the harbour itself. Choose from our yacht rental, catamaran hire or boat hire and enjoy the gorgeous scenery Sydney has to offer!  

From romantic overnight stays for couples, exciting adventures for small groups, to large private and corporate functions for more than 100 guests, our tours and charters offer an unforgettable experience every time. 

Fully managed to the highest professional standards, our skippered charters take in Sydney’s best sights. You will cruise Sydney Harbour, sailing past the Opera House and the Bridge, Fort Denison, Rose Bay and Shark Island. We also stop off at some of Sydney’s most beautiful beaches, accessible only by boat, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim and have a well-deserved glass of wine.

East Coast Sailing Boat Charter
Amazing day trip around the harbour


Amazing day trip around the harbour! The guys were cool and careful. They cooked for us and took care of everything! Boat was quite big and we had a lot of flexibility with where to go. Thank you very much for a great day!

We seriously loved every minute of it

Whitney Sellnow

Hi Kylie, Our crew had an AMAZING time!!!! We seriously loved every minute of it! Well, I did at least!

The lounge area below deck was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable (a few people on board commented on this as well). Also, the staff was very helpful and flexible which we all really appreciated. From start to finish your service has been top notch! Would definitely recommend your boat to people in the future.

…Perfect from start to finish

Bruce & Kerry, AUCKLAND NZ

We would like you to know how much we enjoyed our Vivid Dinner Cruise on Sunday night.

It was perfect from start to finish and the special treatment the wheelchair people received was a real credit to your organisation.

Thank you so much

East Coast Sailing Hens Boat Hire
The skipper and stewardess went above and beyond

Angela Shmith

What a fantastic evening! I recently organised a cruise for my friend’s hens. Everything from the booking and lead up, to the cruise itself was seamless. Prior to the day, the events team was quick to respond to any query and very helpful with all the booking details. On the day of the cruise, the boat was absolutely perfect (we hired the Seawind 1160 Catamaran). The skipper and stewardess went above and beyond what we expected, helping with serving and cooking food and ensuring we all had a wonderful time on the Harbour. Thank you Eastcoast Sailing, we will definitely be back!
