About Flashdance

Cronulla Sailing Charters is an owner operated family company. Our mission at CSC is to showcase our sailing experience, and to share the passion of sailing on a magnificent 57’ yacht

Unlike other yacht charters, we know every day on the water is different. We don't sail the same course every day, we sail for the conditions on the day – from our experience sailing the east coast we can help you create your own unique yachting experience. 

Our home port is the clear waters of Port Hacking in Southern Sydney (25kms south of the Sydney CBD) - however our working area is anywhere from the smooth waters of the many bays and inlets of Sydney to offshore charters anywhere along the Australian east coast.



Is designed and built for fast cruising or racing in safety and comfort. She has cruised around the world and competed in many races including,  Melbourne – Hobart, Sydney – Hobart, Brisbane – Osaka, Darwin – Ambon, Hamilton Island & Airlie Beach Race Weeks. We are currently competing in local races and plan to cruise north to the race weeks of the Keppel Island Classic and Whitsunday race week regattas.

If its racing, cruising, team building, staff & client rewards or a day out with family and friends Flashdance and her experienced crew is the perfect yacht for the job.

Flashdance II - is an Australian registered ship and is licensed with the Yachting Association (YA,cat 4) and NSW Maritime 2C.
