Boxing Day Lunch Cruise Experience

Experience the Boxing Day yacht race from the best spot on the harbour onboard the all-inclusive Sydney Showboat Boxing Day lunch cruise. Don’t miss out on the Boxing Day activities on the harbour and enjoy roving views to all of it with Sydney Showboats. Catch the eventful start of the annual Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race where international racing yachts compete against the Australian yachts as they commence their journey that covers over 630 nautical miles from Sydney to Hobart- only on this all-inclusive Boxing Day lunch cruise. During this annual Boxing Day event international racing yachts compete against the Australian yachts at Rose Bay.

The race flags off at 1 pm with a cannon blast across the harbour. Enjoy great views of the harbour and events from our wrap-around verandas, and indulge in a buffet lunch with a selection of beer, wine & soft drinks for the duration of the cruise.

The inaugural race was held in 1945, later transformed into one of the world's greatest open ocean yacht races. Covering over 630 nautical miles from Sydney to Hobart, the race also goes past the risky Bass Strait.
