How much does it cost to hire a luxury boat on Sydney Harbour?

For larger yachts, you can expect an hourly rate of $900-$1,700/hr and super yachts hire starts at $1,800/hr. On top of this, most yacht charge a wharf pick up and drop off fee (generally $100-$150) and amenities feee (generally $100-$150 or a $15/pp fee). Luxury yachts often also charge a wait staff fee. We will outlay all costs for you upon enquiry, so there are no surprises on the day.

What is the duration of my yacht hire?

During high season (September – April) or on Saturdays throughout the year, the standard hire time is usually 4 hours or more. However, a select few vessels offer 3-hour hires year-round. In low season (May – August) and on weekdays throughout the year, most vessels offer 3-hour hires as standard.

It’s worth noting that overnight hire can also be arranged upon request. Just let us know your requirements, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.

What times are available for hire?

Luxury boats are generally available for hire during the afternoon or evening. Typically, afternoon hires commence at 12pm or 1pm, while evening hires begin at 5pm or 6pm. If you let us know your preference, we will inform you of the available times.

What is included in my luxury boat hire?

When you hire a luxury yacht in Sydney, the package typically includes the use of the vessel, along with an experienced skipper and crew to handle navigation and management. In addition, certain yachts may offer extra amenities and services, such as onboard entertainment systems and water sports equipment like kayaks or paddleboards. We’ll thoroughly review any boat hire package with you, so you can have a clear understanding of what’s included, as well as any additional costs that may apply.

How far in advance should I book?

Yacht hire has become a highly sought-after option for boat rentals on Sydney Harbour, particularly during peak season and especially on Saturdays, which tend to book up rapidly. To secure your desired time and date, we recommend making your reservation at least 3 months in advance. This will ensure that you have ample options to choose from and secure your booking without any hassle.

Although we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment, we are more than happy to accommodate last-minute bookings whenever possible. We will do our very best to assist you in securing a yacht hire for your desired date and time, even if it’s on short notice.

Is swimming possible during our cruise?

Luxury yachts are an excellent choice for spending a day on Sydney Harbour, thanks to their upscale amenities. If your vessel offers easy water access (with either a swimming ladder or plaform), the captain can take you to the finest secluded spots for swimming. Please mention your interest in swimming when you make your enquiry, and our team will inform you of your options!

How does it work with food and drinks? Can we BYO or organise catering?

Most luxury boats offer a BYO drinks option, where you can bring your own drinks onboard for a small amenity fee. This typically includes glassware, cool storage, and in some cases, ice. When you make your booking, we will inform you of the BYO option and any associated fees, so you can plan accordingly and avoid any unexpected expenses.

To comply with RSA guidelines, it’s mandatory to have enough food on board for all cruises. With yachts, you are generally allowed to bring your own food, and some vessels even come equipped with onboard BBQs where the crew can cook your food for you. If you make an enquiry, we will inform you whether your chosen boat has a BBQ available, so you can plan your food arrangements accordingly and avoid any surprises.

While it’s often possible to bring your own food on board, we highly recommend considering the catering options offered by the boat. Our partners offer a wide variety of delicious food and beverage options, making it easy for you to organise your onboard dining experience. Not to mention, it can often be a more convenient and hassle-free option, allowing you to sit back and enjoy your day on the water.

Where will we be picked up and dropped off?

You can view all available pick up and drop off wharf options here. While it’s subject to availability and potential surcharges, we do offer the option of selecting separate locations for both pick-up and drop-off. Our team will be happy to suggest appropriate locations for your group and recommend vessels that can pick you up from your preferred wharf location.

What happens when it rains?

Yachts are equipped to cruise in any weather conditions that are deemed safe by the captain. However, in the event that the weather is deemed unsafe and the captain has to cancel the charter, we will issue you with a voucher for the full value of your booking. You can use this voucher to reschedule your booking within 12 months. Additionally, even when it’s raining, our guests still have an incredible time out on the Harbour. With plenty of space to stay dry and cozy, it can even add to the fun and create a unique and memorable experience.

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!

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!

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.
