About this boat
CO-OWNERSHIP – MORE FUN, LESS FUSS
Looking to enjoy the fun and freedom of boating but without the hassles and big costs?
Why pay the full cost of a boat and carry all the burden of maintenance only to use it a handful of times each year when you can co-own a vessel at a fraction of the cost, be free of the hard work and have more fun on the water?
The co-ownership concept provides a turnkey solution to instant boating enjoyment.
We take care of the administration and maintenance of your boat so you can simply book the days you want to have some fun, then turn up and go cruising.
Affordable – you pay fees monthly rather than a big, annual lump sum
All Inclusive – monthly fees include boat care and servicing
Transparent – you can see the booking timetable and make your own bookings
Easy – simple system, easy to drive boat
THE BOAT – COMPACT CRUISING, MAXIMUM COMFORT
The Flipper 700 DC is a compact yet comfortable day-cruiser ideal for beach and bay hopping around Sydney Harbour and overnight on-water getaways.
Streamlined Scandinavian design gives the Flipper 700 it’s chic but sporty lines, while stainless steel rails and fittings provide shiny trimmings against teak laminate features.
Add the new generation Mercury 225hp V6 engine added to a modern, sharp-looking silhouette and you’re powering across the waterways in style.
The dimensions mean it’s nimble and easy to manoeuvre – perfect for getting around popular harbour locations, finding the right fishing hole or simply stopping off at marina coffee spots.
Onboard it’s all comfort - a spacious L-shaped lounge which easily transforms into a bed for two, a generously sized V-berth within the cabin, flexible seating arrangement, sunbed and folding cockpit table.
When you need a little protection from the wind or the weather turns, it’s easy to pop up the canopy with zip in clears over the entire cockpit area, thanks to the gas-assisted bimini operation.
A swim platform makes it easy to get in and out for a quick dip and the bow deck space allows for lazing in the sun. A washbasin, drink holders, USB charging sockets and ventilator in the bow cabin make the space practical and convenient.
We’ve added the best of the available options – including premium safety equipment, mooring equipment, soft furnishings and even a handheld Dyson!
Plus, it’s economical to run with the engine backed by a six-year warranty, giving you peace of mind on fixed costs for six years.

GETTING TO KNOW THE BOAT
Every boat is different and even the most experienced boating enthusiasts like to get to know a new vessel and get tips on how to handle it.
When you co-own with us, we take you through a full familiarisation of the boat, showing you all the features and functions of equipment and also introducing you to the Sydney Boat House and its facilities.
In addition to the famil, there’s a three-hour boat tuition session which is a requirement for all co-owners. This useful on-water tuition takes you through the boat’s handling dynamics and gives you practical guidance from an experienced instructor. Every boat is different, so it’s important to learn how to handle your boat for safety and to ensure you get the most out of it.
