A man is missing, feared dead after his boat that capsized at the weekend was found hundreds of kilometres away.

The 77-year-old and his son, 37, we on board the 40-foot cruiser on Australia Day off Forster on the NSW mid-north coast when it overturned.

About 2.30am the Australian Maritime Safety Authority detected a distress beacon registered to a cruiser.

The son was able to make it to safety on a dinghy, but a search was unable to find his father.

About 5am today a vessel was located about one nautical mile off Bronte, in Sydney's eastern suburbs, and was identified as the same boat.

Divers attended and confirmed no one was onboard, NSW Police said.
