The affordable alternative to boat ownership, syndicates and boat share
SailTime Australia offers an innovative new approach to sailing and boat ownership that makes it easier, quicker and more economical for aspiring or experienced skippers to take the helm of a beautiful, well-equipped sail or powerboat.
Founded in 2001, in Austin Texas, SailTime has grown to 30+ bases in North America and Europe. Graham Raspass is the Australian CEO and has established bases in Sydney Harbour, Middle Harbour, Pittwater and Port Stephens, with plans for more locations to f0llow.
Since its early beginnings, SailTime has been providing fractional sailing on 30ft – 40ft sailing yachts. In 2006, North America and Europe expanded the product line to include powerboats and in Australia, we introduced our first powerboat, the Swift Trawler to our Port Stephens base in 2019 and would love to see an Excess Catamaram join our fleet in the near future.
In addition to membership onboard our yachts, we offer a range of other complementary products such as training, regattas, flotillas, and membership experiences that provides our members with a truly unique membership program.
Each SailTime base is independently owned and operated by a local entrepreneur, who takes pride in ensuring that your experience with SailTime is one that is memorable and world-class. Additionally, this proud business owner will take care of all the boats’ maintenance and operational needs, so you can simply enjoy your time sailing with friends and family.
We offer memberships on high-quality sailboats, powerboats, and catamarans.
It’s this simple: You pay the membership fee, reserve your time online and head to the boat to sail with your crew. When you’re finished for the day, you button it up for the next member, step off and walk away planning your next trip.
Imagine the thrill of riding the waves and heading for a secluded bay at sunset to enjoy a quiet dinner with friends and family. A SailTime boating membership gives you the time onboard so you can have the thrill of creating lasting memories like these.
