Sydney by Sail is proud to have provided a wonderful on-water experience for many companies, regular clients include :


Just to name a few....

  • E.Santoso - Dufour 382 Charter - September 2019

    Thank you so much for the warm wishes!!

    We absolutely loved, LOVED having the yacht on Saturday. Weather was perfect, and watching the sunset from the boat was such a great experience. Our bridal party and the photo/cinematographer also thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Tade the skipper was great, we were running a bit late on the day but he was so calm and cool about it. He helped us time our arrival at Deckhouse perfectly for our sparkler entrance. 

    Would you also please pass on our thanks to the whole Sydney by sail team? You and everyone else have been so helpful from the beginning when we first inspected the yachts, and also throughout the booking process and selecting our boarding point. Thank you so much!!

  • Nathan Phillips

    A really excellent sail thank you, Josh was a great captain and boat was exceptional.

  • Andrew Ebbott

    The International Bareboat Skipper Sail course undertaken at Sydney by Sail was a very practical and informative course.  The course instructor was very friendly, knowledgeable and skilled. The administrative staff were friendly, accommodating and made the whole process very straight forward.  I would highly recommend Sydney by Sail and the course. 
  • Wendy Fraser

    Thanks Sydney by Sail for a wonderful sailing experience. Our group of 6 friends recently chartered the Dufour 412 for a birthday celebration. Alice and Tade were professional and respectful towards the vessel, the owner, and us. Over the 3 hours Tade, our skipper, was very accommodating and a joy to chat with on board. We enjoyed a quick swim off the back landing and just the right mix of hands-on sailing action vs relaxation. We also enjoyed beautiful platters of prawns, fruits and cheeses arranged by SBS. Easy.

    Best regards

  • Mitre 10 Trade - New Zealand - Silver Multi Race Regatta x 105 Pax - August 2016

    Thank you Sydney by Sail for creating such a memorable day for our group on the Sydney Harbour.

    As we took over 100 customers from New Zealand, this was a fantastic and unique activity to offer them. Everything was made very easy for us, especially with having to organising remotely, with everything taken care of including a delicious packed lunch, safety briefings, and most importantly - the regatta.

    We have had amazing feedback from all of our customers, and we will forward to working with you again next year.

    Many thanks

  • Andy Taylor - Skippered Yacht Charter - March 2017

    We recently chartered the Hunter 45 yacht from 'Sydney by Sail'. It was a very relaxing 4 hours sail around Sydney Harbour. The yacht was in excellent condition and catered for our party of 16 in comfort. Our skipper, Neill, was great and took time to show interested members of the party how the yacht works and gave us a chance to work the winches and steering. He was obviously very experienced, relaxed and friendly. We all had a great time. There's something special about being on the water and Sydney Harbour is just beautiful. I highly recommend the experience and 'Sydney By Sail' met all our expectations - cheers Andy.

  • Alister May

    I booked an overnight cruise for my partner and I for our anniversary and I am so glad I did so with Sydney By Sail. The Customer Service I had was exceptional. From the very start, I was supported and all my questions answered above and beyond the normal expectations. The support due to the bad weather and my fears of our cruise being cancelled were dealt with in the most professional way.

    Once we got to the base, we were met by our skipper who was wonderful. He was professional, showed us the ropes and made us feel very safe. The Breakfast that was provided was of amazing quality and the whole event was better than I could have asked for.

    10/10. I would definitely recommend this if you want a magical night mixed with a wonderful customer experience.

    We have chartered on the Harbour many times and these guys are the best.

    Their boats are in good shape and the staff really helpful.

    One of my staff was a little worried about the windy conditions, but our skipper Ed really put her mind at rest and kept the boat well under control.

    Thanks Sydney By Sail, see you soon. Jimmy
