We take care of all of that for you. Plus you have a choice of two levels of membership to choose from depending on how often you want to go boating.


SailTime Australia is part of the world’s largest boat membership company! SailTime has bases in North America, Canada and Europe and members can use SailTime Plus to take out a boat in another location. With a standardised pricing plan, a boating experience is possible in many locations as well as your local waters – options that are often not available with a traditional charter company.
