about us

At Klabautermann Marine, our passion and mission is helping get people out on the water.

Getting your boat licence is a great way to take advantage of the fantastic waterways we have right here in our back yard – even if you don’t have your own boat.

Having your own boating licence means you can take the wheel of a friend’s boat with confidence any time, or hire your own boat for the day with your family. And if you want a career or job on the water, we can help there too. Don’t put it off any longer.

Klabautermann Marine also provide professional crew for Charter and Private vessels. We work with Captains and Owners of luxury yachts, motor or sail, in Sydney, Central Coast, Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and Port Stephens. Whether they are skippering, serving a cocktail, raising sails, researching the next exclusive anchorage or just making guests feel at ease, the crew of a boat are the backbone and spirit of any successful cruise. In addition to providing at call crew we also develop and implement crew training and procedures for all crew. We are also very experienced trainers accredited by RMS, AMSA and AMC

From Our customers

Russell MCG. Fullerton Cove

A couple of weeks ago I attended a Maritime Training School general boating licence course held in the Stockton Scout Hall. It was a full day course involving theory and practical boating skills. Matt Palmer was our instructor. His presentation and instructions were clearly articulated. Matt also clarified for me a number of points that I thought were not clearly explained in the NSW boating manual. Consequently, I was able to pass the licence exam without any issues. Significantly, Matt also provided us with Tim Tams for morning tea. A nice bonus.
Thanks for your efforts in getting me through the exam, Matt. All the best.

Steve G
