Founded in September 1983, EastSail was launched on the same day Australia 2 won the America's Cup. Auspicious beginnings indeed for Deb and Pete, two young Sydneysiders with a passion for sailing and a dream of owning a yacht charter company.
Their innate sense of adventure and determination has led these young entrepreneurs through the thirty year journey which is EastSail. The company has grown to a full time staff of eight and a team of 20 skippers and a $10 million fleet of 24 yachts and cruisers. EastSail fleet is second to none in Australia. Beneteau, Dufour, Sydney yachts and Riviera cruisers that are the latest in design, well maintained and impeccably presented.
The formula for their success has been the provision of a quality product, and anticipation of market needs coupled with superb service to ensure clients have that an unforgettable experience. EastSail's commitment was rewarded with the NSW and Australian Tourism Award for Business Excellence in Adventure Tourism.
The EastSail base is located only 10 minutes from the City in Rushcutters Bay, a delightful work environment, where there is a floating marina and all the facilities required to run a thriving leisure tourism business. The marina is adjacent to the Cruising Yacht Club, the home of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race and a great venue for post sailing entertainment.
Centered around a family run, lifestyle business all EastSail staff are bound by a love of sailing and the harbour and are an eclectic mixture of Australian, British, and European.
