Sydney Vessel Management Pty Ltd provide a range of services to boat owners to assist them with buying, selling and maintaining their boat to the highest standards. Our maintenance services are aimed at vessel owners who do not have adequate time or the necessary experience to keep their vessel in pristine condition, or those who prefer to enjoy their precious down time on the water relaxing rather than maintaining their boat. Whether it is buying, selling, monthly boat detailing and maintenance, skippering, catering or arranging your annual engine service, Sydney Vessel Management is your one-stop shop.

Based on the Northern Beaches in Sydney, SVM services the entire Sydney area, from Port Hacking to Pittwater. Sydney Vessel Management is the most established vessel management company at The Spit, Mosman, where we began over ten years ago. We are still looking after our very first client today.
