Ever dreamed of owning a luxury cruiser and exploring the pristine waterways of Port Stephens?
Imagine cruising spectacular surrounds, sailing to a quiet cove or calling ashore for a sumptuous lunch at one of the local restaurants.
Soldiers Point Marina offers you this opportunity as owner-managers of the SailTime Port Stephens franchise, part of SailTime Australia.
SailTime provides all the fun of boating without all the cost and commitment of owning and maintaining your own boat and is the perfect way for aspiring mariners to get a taste of what it's all about.
Indeed, Soldiers Point Marina has just welcomed a second luxury vessel to its SailTime Fleet - Independence, a 35ft Luxury Swift Trawler.
She joins the beautiful 38ft Jeanneau sailboat Liberty available to SailTime members and casual boaters alike.
SailTime Port Stephens offers a variety of membership and charter options to suit your individual needs.
Membership is structured to provide boating on board a luxury vessel for a fraction the normal cost.
A one-off joining fee includes a two-day induction (or training for those new to boating). A range of monthly membership fees, starting from $790, provide you with guaranteed minimum time on the boat(s).
"Sail times" that are not used during the month are valid for 30 days and roll over into the next month. You also have access to additional "as available sail times" with a Gold Membership at no extra charge.
"SailTime is a great option for people who have been thinking about buying a boat to get a taste without that initial big financial commitment," Carmen Holden Guest Service Manager said.
"We've had some members who have tried SailTime and are now sailing around the world on their own vessels."
Soldiers Point Marina also offers casual charters with Liberty and Independence where customers can take the vessel out for a day or hire a skipper to savour a spectacular day on the water.
All members have access to a dedicated private parking space and exclusive marina facilities.
Soldiers Point Marina is a luxury boutique style marina offering world class service and one of only seven marinas in the world, and three in Australia, which holds the highly coveted Platinum Anchor accreditation.
Soldiers Point Marina is located in a tranquil bay just 10 minutes drive from Nelson Bay on Sunset Boulevarde, Soldiers Point, and caters to an exclusive clientele of boat owners who use the marina as a base for their maritime adventures both in and around Port Stephens and the world.
