One of the last remaining Slipways on Sydney Harbour

Over the years we have lost many of our slipways in Sydney Harbour. More and more slipways are sold to developers who crave the waterside views. That’s good news for developers but bad news for boaties.

The good news is Balmain Slipway is still here conveniently located on Sydney Harbour. And we plan on staying here for many years to come.

Balmain slipway is your convenient, professional, and premium place for all of your boat’s repairs and maintenance.
Slipway Established in 1950
A patent slipway leaves no hard stand marks on your vessel. It gives us access to your entire hull and it is the preferred option over hard stand slipways. With us there are no marks. No missed spots. No shortcuts. Guaranteed.
  • "Very Professional Service"

    “I’ve been in the marine industry, buying, selling, managing, training and skippering vessels my whole life. And I must say, the way Balmain Slipway slipped and antifoul my 51' Aluminium Cutter was very professional. Great job done on time.

    In addition, there was a tricky maintenance item requiring the rudder to be dropped. This was done without fuss and at a good price. The result was the steering was perfectly restored.”

    "5 Knots Faster"

    “I like that I could be around my boat while it was worked on. I was kept in the loop and involved in the process; not shut out like on other slipways.

    15 knots max speed before antifouling and propspeed. Just over 20 knots after.
    A definite improvement in speed and performance. I’m very happy with the job and results.”

  • "Marine Mechanic Says Balmain Slipway Provides a First Rate Service"

    “I’m a marine mechanic specialising in power boats. I’ve been in the industry for over 20 years. As you can imagine, I’ve seen plenty of boat yards and slipways in Sydney. And I’m very pleased with the team at Balmain Slipway. They do a first rate top quality job on all their boats.

    They’re an organised, professional team that provides a premium service and they insist on providing high quality control. The slipway is tidy too… something I can’t say about many other slipways I’ve encountered in the past.

    First rate operators. I highly recommend them to boaties who demand the best for their boats.”
