Our Lovely Sailing Boats

Eastcoast Sailing has several sailing catamarans and sailing yachts to cruise Sydney Harbour. Catamarans are renowned for their stability, comfort and huge space. Up front, you can laze on the trampolines to best enjoy the cruise. There is a spacious covered cabin with seating, and a large cockpit with plenty of space to move around.

Unlike some other impersonal harbour cruises, this is not a huge ferry type vessel with 100s of tourists, but rather a wonderful unique personal experience on Sydney Harbour with your own private boat, and with a skipper. Also, our tour does not use a pre-recorded voice over – our skipper will carefully explain all the highlights and history of the harbour icons. And feel free to ask our skippers lots of questions. Weather permitting, we can hoist up the sails.
