Excellent boat share model.

I have several friends who have purchased a share in a  boat through Luxury Boat Syndicates and they are all very happy.

Frank Gray

Great service, and expeditiously fixing all problems that inevitably arise on boats, that leave all other boatshare companies in its wake.

Robert Benz

Ian and the team have done a wonderful job accommodating myself, friends, family and work associates. I would highly recommend his product and service to anyone thinking about buying a boat - you'll no doubt have experiences you will fondly remember for your whole life.

Michael Zahn

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.

Darren Patterson

The LBS service is friendly, relaxed, and above all professional. For our company it helps us win deals. Thanks guys, keep up the great work.

Consultrix Australia

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

I am very happy with the service, amazing.

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!
