Sydney Waterford Boat Club

Welcome to

Sydney Waterford Boat Club

We are a thriving and vibrant rowing club located on the nerve of Waterford City.

Oldest Sporting Club in a City

We are a thriving and vibrant rowing club located on the nerve of Waterford City. We have been in existence for more than 130 years, and we have the distinction of being the oldest sporting club in a city over 1000 years old. The club is also a founding member of the Irish Amateur Rowing Union (Rowing Ireland)


The Coronavirus pandemic affected every sector of society, and our club was not immune to its effects. We had to shut down for some time when the virus was at its peak, but even as we have reopened now, there are still restrictions in place to present the spread. That is why every visitor to our club is expected to abide by certain rules.

Boating division

There are seven boating divisions available at Waterford Boat Club. They all provide a wide range of racing, navigational, and social activities. Each boating division represents the wide range of activities you can involve yourself while at the club. It is what makes the club the perfect leisure spot for boat lovers. You will find more information about each division on their individual pages.

Sell your boats

Do you have boats that you’re no longer using, and you’re planning to sell it? There are various ways to go about this. The regular way is for you to sell it yourself, but that could mean a lot of work for you. You have to advertise, attend to strangers who want to make enquiries, deal with disappointments, and lots more. The other option is to let us sell your boats for you.

Boat loans

Do you wish to buy a boat but you don’t have the money for such major investment? You can use the option of a boat loan to get the boat of your choice and join that exclusive club of boat owners—the captain of their sails.


A boat is a massive investment, and for an investment of this nature, you really need to protect it with all you’ve got. The perfect way to do it is with insurance. Boat insurance is like car insurance except it is more complex, and you may pay more in premiums, especially if you use the boat regularly.
