Want to make sailing your life? Seabbaticals may just show you how.

Whenever you go sailing, it is a delight.

But what if there was a way you could make your living from it?

Seabbaticals have been touring Australia with its unique crew of presenters showing attendees the different ways it is possible to earn your living from sailing. Now it is Queensland's turn with its next presentation at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron on June 24.

Learn how the Margett's family and dozens of other savvy boat owners have funded their dream boat (sometimes more than one)  through the booming charter boat industry and accelerated their cruising adventures. Syndicate yacht ownership models are also presented as an alternative stepping stone into boat ownership.
