Major Tom | Sailing Yacht Hire

Maximum 34 Guests | From AUD $600/hr

Your Boating Experience

Major Tom is a beautiful 64ft sailing yacht that is the perfect size for medium groups of up to 34 passengers on Sydney Harbour. With 3 separate entertaining areas there is ample space to move around the vessel.

Guests just love the huge open sun deck with convertible dining table/day bed out the front and the large saloon area which is perfect for dining, dancing or relaxing indoors. The large back deck boasts a jumping platform as well as a shaded day bed. Want to take it real easy? Crawl in one of the hammocks and relax.

Sail around the harbour until you find a cosy place to drop anchor. Major Tom is equipped with a swim platform with ladder so you can also ask the captain to take you to one of Sydney’s gorgeous secluded coves and go for a dip.

Major Tom has a BBQ on board, and the crew will cook the food. Don’t fancy organising the food yourself? Don’t worry, there are catering options available. Make sure to bring a playlist to play your tunes through the sound system.

The Major Tom team is known for their easy-going and helpful crew, who will ensure you have an amazing day out on the water! Major Tom is available for hire in Sydney from October to March, including Public Holidays and New Years eve.

Why people love the boats we hire:

Tom W – Dec 2022

We had an absolute ball on NYE! Travis and Karin looked after our booking so perfectly and really guided us through all the options before finding the perfect solution for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and have already been recommending them to friends who saw all of our pictures on social media ;). The perfect experience from start to finish!

Tiffany L – March 2023

100 % recommend Sydney Harbour Days! Karin and Travis were simply awesome. They helped make the whole experience of booking a boat for my friends Hen’s party simple and easy, their communication was great and any questions I had were answered quickly! Thank-you again!

Jodie S – May 2022

Karin & Travis were great to work with! So accommodating to every request and kept us informed every step of the way! They had so many options and nothing felt like an issue, definitely would look to book through them again!

Claire C – March 2023

I recently organised a boat for my birthday through Sydney Harbour Days and found the whole process with Travis and Karin incredibly smooth and enjoyable. They were very responsive and helpful, and really ensured we had the best day possible. I would highly recommend using Sydney Harbour Days and I know for certain I’ll be using them again!!

Kris W – Jan 2022

I just wanted to thank you and the boat operators for an amazing day out on the harbour. The entire team had a great day, we swam, we shot guns, we danced and we drank!! The food was fabulous and everyone was raving about how good it was. My team have been on a fair few harbour cruises in our time, but none were as fun as this.

Coleen R – July 2022

Definitely had the best time ever in the boat! We are lucky enough as well to have the most gorgeous sunset! Everything made possible by Karin and Travis. They helped me plan every details and they keep me updated all the time. You won’t regret these two because they will reply as quick as they can.
