Why charter a boat for your event?

The key difference is that a charter boat is for private use, just your group, and with flexibility to do the activities that you want to do, and go to the destinations that you want to see!

How does it work?

Starting from sail yourself, to a skippered charter (BYO food and drinks) to full service corporate hospitality (think captain, deckhand, onboard chef, host/wait staff) we can tailor your boat event to your needs!

Where can we go?

Brisbane River:  Event boat cruises are very popular on the Brisbane River, easy to get on and off – and party on – 4 hour river boat celebrations and entertainment are our speciality.

Moreton Bay:  Sailing in Moreton Bay is great for the day!  Think a BBQ onboard for a more relaxing day long sunbake, snorkel and swim.  Moreton Bay is close to Tangalooma resort, Moreton Island, Stradbroke Island – find your own secluded white sandy beach, spot dolphins and turtles.

What kind of events?

Corporate entertainment and christmas parties, birthday parties, bucks and hens parties and wedding receptions are very popular!  Yacht charters are also very popular ways for wedding arrivals especially to Newstead Park – a popular and well serviced wedding venue.  Cocktail parties, corporate team building, sailing lessons and team racing are great options for corporate conference events.  Or maybe an extended romantic overnight getaway (engagements?!) or extended overnight/long weekend/holiday charters?

How many can we take?

From just 1 guest up to 75 guests, we can tailor a private charter to suit your needs.  

Which Vessel is best for our needs?

The easiest thing is to probably just give us a call and discuss your needs.  To give you an idea, a place to start is the type of vessel.  We have sailing yachts, sailing catamarans, motor yachts, power catamarans, even superyachts.  As long as you want a private charter, we have something to suit you.  

Some quick tips for choosing the best boat for your event:

Sailing Yachts: can be sporty, dreamy and romantic – they can sail level, but will lean.

Sailing Catamarans:  Sailing level, and being ‘square’ in layout, they are easier to move around and provide a good stable platform for more formal events, or standing events.

Motor Yachts: With the benefit of speed, motor yachts have better access to further away destinations such as Tangalooma and even transfers to the Gold Coast.  Power vessels also tend to be larger, providing for more space and facilities.
