SailTime Membership and Charter
If you have been longing to go boating in your local waterways on a luxury fully equipped vessel but thought it was out of your reach, SailTime can make that dream a reality. SailTime Port Stephens offers easy and affordable membership and charter options —without all the hassles, headaches, long-term commitment and expenses that are often associated with traditional boat ownership.
SailTime is a great option for people who have been thinking about buying a boat, either power or sail, but want to get a taste of what it’s all about, without all the financial commitment. Here at Soldiers Point Marina, we’ve had some members who have tried SailTime and are now boating around the world on their own vessels! Soldiers Point Marina also offers casual charters where customers can take the vessel out on their own to explore our pristine waterways, or hire a skipper to ensure you relax and savour a spectacular day on the water.
SailTime Membership – Port Stephens – “Your” boat, your way
A range of monthly memberships fess, starting at $790 per month, provide you with guaranteed minimum time on the boat(s). You will pay no marina fees, no insurance, no repairs, no maintenance — just step on board and away you go.
SailTime membership is just like any other club membership, but on the water. You pay a one-time joining fee “for life” and then a monthly fee to use the equipment. All you have to do is just wipe it down when you are finished. All member have access to a dedicated private parking space and exclusive marina facilities.
The Port Stephens based yacht is a beautiful 38’ Jeanneau which is well appointed and easy to sail. An introductory sailing session and training is included to familiarise you with the vessel and the local waterways. You, your friends and family will be well equipped to happily explore this superb marine playground. As the world’s leading membership-based operation, with over 10 years’ experience, we offer a variety of membership options to suit your individual needs.
Go sailing on your “own” boat without all the hassles. Grab this opportunity for yourself or with friends on our luxury 38 ft Jeanneau yacht.
In an Australian first, Soldiers Point Marina is now offering aspiring mariners the opportunity to live the life they’ve always dreamed of – at a fraction of the normal cost – onboard the luxurious Independence, a 35′ Swift Trawler. Independence joins the stunning 38′ Jeanneau sailing boat, Liberty, as part of the Port Stephens SailTime fleet. It is the first time that a powerboat has joined SailTime.
