About Us


Welcome, Luxury Boat Syndicates is an exciting boat syndication and management company based out of Sydney’s eastern suburbs. In alliance with Premier Marine, Luxury Boat Syndicates offers a bespoke walk-on/ walk-off management service for handpicked luxury vessels ranging from 30ft – 60ft. We have carefully selected boats that will not only meet, but also surpass all your boating expectations as you explore the best harbour in the world and beyond. Our team has a wealth of nautical knowledge, as well as experience in fractional ownership and management of multi-million dollar assets. Here at Luxury Boat Syndicates, we aim to ensure every day on the water is a great day for you, your family and friends!

We have a vast understanding of the wants and needs of clients. Using this knowledge, we plan to revolutionise the boat share industry. We have derived our own booking system which is fair and equal to all owners, as well as an online defect log to ensure your vessel is maintained to the highest standards of owner satisfaction. Our vision is to guide and show you the most cost effective and efficient way to own a boat by offering a hassle free option to boating, enabling you to relax and enjoy endless summer days upon your luxury vessel. We look forward to meeting you marina side!


Luxury Boat Syndicates initiate the original syndication through an ‘Expressions of Interest’ system. Once there is enough interest generated, Luxury Boat Syndicates sources the boats for its clients. Once the boat is 100% owned by its shareholders, Luxury Boat Syndicates becomes purely a management company, supervising all aspects of the boat’s maintenance (see our services page for a more detailed insight to our service). The boats mostly range from 30ft – 60ft, but can also vary outside these parameters depending on the client’s needs. We only choose the best practical and eye-catching boats that outlast and out-perform their rivals.

Typically, syndicates consist of eight equal shares, and each owner is entitled to 43 days of use per year. This is broken up into weekends and weekdays. However, four and two share systems can also be arranged. Ongoing costs are equally divided amongst the owners, plus a management fee. Costs are outlined and broken down into individual facets to show each shareholders exactly where their money is spent. There are no hidden costs at Luxury Boat Syndicates. At the end of the syndicate duration – approximately three years – the boat is sold with the net proceeds divided equally amongst all owners.

Ian’s curiosity in boats started at an early age and began working around marinas in his twenties. He worked his way up the ranks, taking on several managerial positions before being offered a position as Operations Manager at a boat share company looking after 30 boats, varying in size. With over 15 years of marine experience, Ian now has his own detail and cleaning company. An avid boater, he competes in a navigation contest in Tasmania annually where he regularly achieves outstanding results.

Excellent boat share model.

Ian provides an amazing walk on walk off service which is ideal for young families and experience boaters alike. This is the only way to own a boat on Sydney Harbour. All the service without any of the hassle. A truly professionally run service orientated business, where the customer comes first, and nothing is ever too much trouble.

Recently signed with LBS with little boat experience, Ian has patiently provided the tuition required to operate, navigate and handle a big boat. ( all part of the LBS service )

Had our maiden voyage over Easter and the whole experience was just fantastic.

If your looking to get into a boat without much experience or without the headaches of full ownership these people are for you.

Joe Bennett

Ian and his amazing team have literally changed our lives.

We are so thankful that a service like this exists and Ian made it happen.

Stephan Kljajic

Chris Newport

Ian and the team provide a fantastic service. From the moment we met Ian we knew this option was right for us. We are in love with our boat and look forward to many more days on the harbour.

Daniel Ashley

Why pay for a luxury boat everyday if you don't use it every day?

From a financial perspective, using Luxury Boat Syndicates is a no brainer, compared to owning your own boat. Your can get access to a much bigger boat than you can afford to buy and for a fraction of the cost

Chris Gray

Ian and the LBS team have excelled in every respect, making our boating experience absolutely top drawer. The management and commercial model works very well, service is always with a smile, and we are a couple of very happy campers. Try it, you'll like it!
