About ‘the boatyard’


In ‘the boatyard’ you’ll find the most popular boats in the world, Optimists, 420’s, plus all the best quality parts and accessories to keep you on the water and going fast.


‘the boatyard’ is where you go to find anything to do with ISAF Classes and the Yachting Australia ‘Pathway’, in fact the pathway leads to ‘the boatyard’ and with the introduction of our online shop, ‘the boatyard’ is just a click away.


Starting with the Tackers learn to sail program and OziOpti, the business driving the growth of the Opti in Australia, ‘the boatyard’ will be there for you right through your junior, youth and adult sailing.


With a vast range of boats to cater for family fun, club racers through to Olympic aspirants, you’ll find your next boat at ‘the boatyard’ as we’re happy to trade in all these classes.


‘the boatyard’ represents some of the best dinghy builders in the world, ZOU Optis from Qingdao, Centrum Baranowski of Poland for Opti’s, 420’s, 470’s and even International Cadets.


‘the boatyard’ is the Australian importer of Optiparts from The Netherlands, manufacturer of the highest quality and most broadly used Optimist hardware in the world.


At a local level, Optiparts stockists are opening in line with the growth of the class, and are developing stockists near your local club so you won’t miss out on a sail because a part is missing.


At ‘the boatyard’ we designed and build our own PE sail training dinghy the ‘Tacker’ for the Tackers Program which we have developed over the past four years for the Yachting Australia Junior Sailing Plan.


‘the boatyard’ is mobile too, as it has the ability of setting itself up in yacht clubs around Australia and overseas to service our customers at regattas, in the past year ‘the boatyard’ has backed its customers in every state of Australia and even in Windy Wellington NZ.


Steven Bond of ‘the boatyard’ started OziOpti in 2005 to bring an affordable and level playing field to junior sailing, since then we have delivered over 300 Optis, our boats have won the Australian Championships for the past three years and in 2009 our boats won 7 of the 28 heats at the New Zealand Optimist Nationals, from a field of 250+ sailors.


If you can’t find what you’re looking for at ‘the boatyard’ please drop us a line and if it’s on the pathway we’ll find it for you.


Yours in sailing,




Steven Bond.
