Any good recommendations for a cheap but good haul out facility in Sydney Harbour, Au

Hey guys,
I promise I did search for content so sorry if it's been asked before but do you have any recommendations around the harbour itself? Much appreciated in advance!

Re: Any good recommendations for a cheap but good haul out facility in Sydney Harbour

Sydney, no. Sorry.
But close to Broken Bay is Gonsalves at Palm Beach. Also close to Broken Bay is Booker Bay. Two slipways at Booker Bay. Also is Hardies Bay. All good and way cheaper than Sydney.
If there was what you're looking for I'd have found it, probably.
Don't know if your Nicholson can get under Hawkesbury River bridge ( 11.8m mhws). If so then where is excellent is Fenwicks behind the western end of Long Island. Fenwicks have a travel lift and an immaculate hardstand. Fenwicks is where I go.
Good luck champ.

Balmain slipway is reasonable and allows DIY over the weekends too. Cheapest all round though is Oyster Cove up in Port Stephens, well worth the trip if you need slightly longer out on the hard. Keep smiling.

Re: Any good recommendations for a cheap but good haul out facility in Sydney Harbour

Hi Greybeardloon this is off topic a bit apologies to all. Is your Nicholson 32 a Rudder Yachts made one?
I once owned the Nicholson 32 that was imported to Australia along with moulds. That would have been mid sixties. She was launched as Poseidon, named Rozinante when I bought her in 1975. I sold her early eighties in Cairns. She came to Hobart and called FarCall (ouch) and I last saw her in Eden nearly 10 years ago with yet another name.

Hi, as Yacht Broker in the Sydney area for some years, I have found the most professional and reliable to be Cammeray Marina. Contact owner, Kelvin Rabbits if you can for best results.
Hope this helps, cheers.

Re: Any good recommendations for a cheap but good haul out facility in Sydney Harbour

rushcutters bay has a boat lift / we called in heading north and tied up adjacent their boat lift as it was after hours and provisioned from Coles /being a while ago RANSA was still next door and some old salts invited us in for an ale and to hear our cruising story / a couple of stern faced well dressed chaps suggested we move from the boat lift or we might find the boat in slings with a large cash for splash bill / we bluffed easily and vacated to public mooring on the opposite side of the bay to rushcutters / there are many facilities round in Pittwater and Gosford / use the phone book you may find one vacant and negotiate a price / if you have time that whole place is worth 2 months of cruising time even with putting up with wakes from cashed up and clueless stink boats

Hi Pat, no sorry it's not. Great to hear you had such a good experience of the build. We like her

Second Balmain Marine Centre (slipway) operated by Jeremy 95557049. You will need to be back in the water on schedule because another boat is usually scheduled to go in.
