Re-discover an iconic yachts’ destination: Sydney

17 August 2021

There is no more iconic sight for a superyacht than sailing past the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House on New Years’ Eve. Sydney offers luxury, diverse activities and unique experiences that make it a captivating destination for superyachts.

Beyond the inner-city charms and luxury delights, there are stunning secluded beaches and bays which provide the perfect setting to enjoy a superyacht escape.

The central location of Sydney’s iconic harbour allows superyachts the rare opportunity to sit in the heart of one of the world’s most exhilarating cities. Short tender rides can bring you to unmissable landmarks, including the Sydney Opera House where guests can be treated to VIP backstage tours of some of the most thrilling shows. Stepping into the city centre you will be greeted by sprawling shopping streets in an elegant outdoor environment.
World-class boutiques, a fascinating collection of museums and galleries, along with incredible fine-dining restaurants are all waiting to be discovered. Sydney perfectly mirrors the opulence and class associated with a superyacht adventure, and it is certainly not all urban areas that are worth exploring. There is incredible scenery in the surrounding areas of Sydney that provide ample unique experiences to immerse yourself in, giving the impression of a remote paradise while knowing the big city life is never far away.

Anchor at Athol Bay on the Eastern Beaches to take a stroll around Taronga Zoo, with stunning views back across Sydney. There are eye-opening historical sites to visit as you head down to Watsons Bay, where you can learn about the early settlers in Australia or simply switch off on the beautiful South Head coastal track. Heading north of the city, Pittwater is a favourite location for those who want a genuine yachting experience.
This is a fantastic area to take to the air on a seaplane and get a whole new perspective of Sydney, before you enjoy the thrill of landing in Pittwater’s incredible cruising grounds. Explore the gorgeous hidden bays and stop off to sample the sumptuous cuisines available in the area, and enjoy the full experience of your superyacht in cruising grounds perfect for using your arsenal of toys and tenders. Sydney is a complete superyacht destination which offers a perfect balance between the thrills of a major city and the blissful relaxation of secluded bays and beaches. Discovering Sydney by superyacht unlocks new possibilities and adventures.
