Sydney Harbour and the nearby Hawkesbury River system are two of Australia’s most spectacular boating playgrounds.
Deep valleys that were carved by ancient rivers through millennia of Hawkesbury sandstone, one waterway is almost as it was in 1788, while the other is the most sophisticated boating venue in Australia… and the best way to explore them is onboard a Sea Ray!
Sydney Harbour is an eclectic mix of commercial fairways for freight and passenger traffic and a playground for recreational boats of all types. Just around the point from a busy wharf you can find a tranquil beach for a picnic or a classy waterside restaurant.
Back onboard your Sea Ray 370 Sundancer after lunch at Doyles on the Beach, Watsons Bay, you might cruise across the harbour and drop anchor at Quarantine Beach or Store Beach for a relaxing afternoon in the sun. Or perhaps raft-up with your friends in their boats at Castle Rock for an afternoon swim, before heading across the water for dinner at the Public Dining Room, Balmoral.
If fast-paced action is more your style, head further up Middle Harbour in your Sea Ray 220 Sundeck where the kids can go wakeboarding until their hearts are content. A bite for lunch at Roseville Bridge Marina or the Spit Marina and you’ll be back on the water with the kids in tow in no time. They won’t want to go home!
Your business is booming. You’ve set a precedent with corporate entertainment over the years and your international partners and associates expect something different each time they visit Sydney. Impress them onboard your Sea Ray L650, with a twilight cruise past the harbour’s iconic landmarks. The evening will be a memorable one. Everyone insists you take them again next time – meanwhile you’ve secured the deal of your career.
The scene is set… all it needs is you – onboard your Sea Ray.
If you really want to get away from it all, take your Sea Ray 540 Sundancer out through the heads and make the short trip north to Broken Bay – the entrance to the pristine Hawkesbury River system.
Staring at aptly-named Lion Island as you enter this majestic waterway – with Pittwater to the south and Brisbane Water to the north – where you spend the next few days is entirely up to you.
America Bay and Refuge Bay are just two of the many safe anchorages throughout the Hawkesbury River and adjoining Cowan Creek system… and there are also some world-class marinas tucked away among this stunningly Australian setting.
With dense native bush and national parks adjoining deep, sheltered cruising grounds, you could spend your entire life exploring this unique part of the world in your Sea Ray – and always find something new.
