A man involved in a 16 hour stand off with police on his boat on Lake Macquarie has been arrested.

The 55 year was allegedly in possession of a knife and making threats towards officers at Toronto's Wharf Road jetty at around 10:30 Tuesday morning.

He set sail into the lake and later started a small fire on his yacht.

Specialist police boarded the boat just after 3am Wednesday morning and arrested him without incident.

He's currently being questioned at Toronto Police Station.
