FAQ How many days can we use the boat? Owners get allocated 43 days per year to use their boat. The days are broken into 13 weekend days and 30 weekdays. Owners are also entitled to unlimited standby days. Can I use the boat overnight? We encourage overnight use as we want owners to receive the full experience and true value your boat can deliver.

Are luxury boats available 365 days a year? Luxury Boat Syndicates is open for boating 365 days a year, but we allow 21 days annually for scheduled maintenance to keep your boat looking fresh and running perfectly. We try to plan maintenance outside of prime time— school holidays and weekends—so you can enjoy your boat when you most want to. That includes weekends and public holidays, including Christmas and New Year’s.

Am I confined to certain waterways? Not at all – it’s your boat. However, you may want to employ a skipper if you are going into unchartered waters for the first time. We are always happy to recommend a skipper to you should you wish. Also, it is paramount that you check the weather forecast for the duration of your trip.

Regular servicing also preserves the resale value of your boat. Because we service boats twice a year, you don’t get expensive problems like gearboxes that need replacing when they could have received preventive maintenance at a fraction of the cost. Also, a service history gives your boat a profile, and it lowers your insurance premiums.

How many days can we use the boat? Owners get allocated 43 days per year to use their boat. The days are broken into 13 weekend days and 30 weekdays. Owners are also entitled to unlimited standby days. Can I be trained in boating if I am a beginner? Yes. Full comprehensive training is provided and must be completed before your maiden voyage. Additional training can be arranged should you not feel confident in any aspect of your skill set.

What if I want to sell my share? Every syndicate has a predetermined end date, which is usually less than 3.5 years. The period varies slightly because the end date is timed to coincide with selling before an Australian summer to get the best price in the shortest time. When we sell the boat, the owners receive equal shares in the proceeds. If you want to sell you share before the dissolution of your syndicate, you can, and we will be happy to help you find a buyer.

Can I sell my share? Your share is fully transferable. Luxury Boating Syndicates can help you advertise and sell your share. Who else can take control of the helm? Each owner may nominate two extra drivers over 18 years of age. Each nominated driver must undertake the relevant training and be deemed confident. How do I become an owner? Simply fill out and email an EOI (Expression of Interest) form. Make an appointment to come and speak with Luxury Boat Syndicates and we can go through all aspects taking part in a syndicate and the services available to you to see how it can suit your individual lifestyle. What licence do I need? A General NSW MARITIME boat driver’s license is necessary for any prospective boat captain. The license must be kept with the captain at all times.
