The current cost estimate of this project is $48,000.00 ($16,000 for each vessel)

Currently use of the above vessels is restricted to members of Sydney Heritage Fleet. Once survey has been achieved it will allow the Fleet  to offer regular cruises and private charters to the general public in addition to its members therefore increasing the Fleet’s opportunities to raise much needed revenue. The following outlines the major tasks that may be needed to obtain survey, the cost of these tasks will be required for all three vessels:

  • Safety Equipment
  • Extra Flotation Foam
  • Compass
  • Update Anchor and Chain
  • Update Medical/First Aid Kit
  • Incline Experiment for Survey
  • Stability Book
  • IPad for Each Vessel
  • Update VHF Radios
  • Life Jackets with Lights and Whistles
  • Admiralty Chart Sydney Harbour
  • “Out of Water” Docking for Survey
  • General Docking Material Costs
