Complimentary Berthing for Boating Groups

Soldiers Point Marina prides itself on shaping boating lifestyles and understanding that a marina is much more than a "boat park". We understand that marinas have become important lifestyle destinations for boating family and friends. With an emphasis on first class quality, Soldiers Point Marina has been totally rebuilt in recent years providing our customers with splendid facilities and advantages expected in a Five Gold Anchor boutique marina.

We are offering complimentary 2 nights berthing for your boating group and if you feel like regaining your land legs you can take a 2 minute walk to the Soldiers Point Holiday Park located right next door to the marina. We can also arrange a game of golf at the award winning Horizons Golf Course a 5 minute drive from the marina, or a trip to the beautiful Hunter Valley to visit some wineries.

(Conditions apply - Minimum four boats)

Soldiers Point Sailing School

A big congratulations to Nathan Outteridge (the brother of our very own sailing instructor Hayley) and Iain Jensen who were awarded the Olympic Gold Medal in the 49er at Weymouth. The success of these young men will surely inspire the next generation of young sailors!

In preparation for the upcoming sailing season the school in association with MDBS Boat Brokers has a range of Neil Pryde rashies, boots, gloves, hats and vests available for purchase.

The sailing school program has been very popular with many students gaining their Basic Skills One certificate. A Basic Skills Two course will soon be available for those students who have successfully completed the initial course. Students from St Philips Christian College and Tomaree High School have had the benefit of weekly complimentary sailing lessons for their sports lessons, with the school sessions recommencing in Term 4 on Tuesday October 9th.
