Showboat Private Charter Cruises

There’s nothing like chartering the legendary Sydney Showboat – the pride of Sydney Harbour – to host a glamorous celebratory event, a business conference or a spectacular Christmas Party in Sydney!

Everything about exclusive charters and party cruises sounds fancy, expensive and absolutely unaffordable, but be rest assured, Sydney Showboat’s luxury charter packages can be tailored to suit your inclusions and budget. Get in touch with us and you will be pleasantly surprised to know that this magical Sydney Harbour venue can be made affordable with an all-inclusive tailored charter package and no hidden extras.

Our boat hire packages include a beautiful cruise along the stunning Sydney Harbour, a choice of gourmet buffet, cocktail or 3-course menu options, multiple beverage packages and a world-class cabaret show if desired. Be it formal or fun, the Showboat exclusive private charters can be customised right down to the last detail. You can personalise your entire Sydney Harbour event with themed décor, games or team-building activities and variety of entertainment that can be worked into your package costs.

Depending on the number of guests, our cruise consultants can tailor a cost-effective package with fantastic inclusions that are guaranteed to make a dull and dreary conference the most exciting event on Sydney Harbour! With no organisational hassles, everyone can be footloose and fancy free! When you work out the whole kit and caboodle, you’ll realise that chartering a luxury vessel with an events team at your beck and call is more cost-effective than trying to micro-manage and organise an event all by yourself! That’s what makes this private charter vessel all the more appealing when you’re weighing your options, especially if you’re looking for a wedding venue in Sydney.

Christmas party charter venues on Sydney Harbour have been increasing in popularity, with more and more people wanting to throw a big, bold and beautiful bash to celebrate the joy of the season. And, you need not limit yourself to a festive event; you could host a gala dinner, a college reunion, a milestone birthday or anniversary or a business conference and enjoy this exclusively private space and all its fringe benefits!

Nothing defines charm and elegance more than this quaint ballroom with its old-world charm, cathedral windows and gleaming brass handrails that lend a touch of class and finesse to your event on Sydney Harbour. So why settle for anything less than the best private charter vessel in Sydney to host a gala dinner or awards function?

Why not give our events team a call on 8296 7352 to bounce off some ideas?
