5 Reasons Why You Should Rent Your Own Private Boat This NYE

May 10, 2022

New Year’s Eve in Sydney Australia just hits differently than in any other place in the world. Not only is Sydney one of the first places to celebrate another trip around the sun. But also these celebrations are paired with the most incredible firework show in the most amazing setting: stunning Sydney Harbour.

No wonder every year over a million people flock to Sydney to watch the NYE countdown and fireworks spectacle. And that millions more watch it on TV, from all across the globe.

If you haven’t made plans for this New Years Eve yet, get your friends together for the ultimate party by chartering your own private boat on Sydney Harbour!

Looking to Hire a Boat for your Sydney NYE Party?

1. Best views of Sydney NYE Fireworks

A NYE fireworks cruise gets you the best views possible. There is no need to get anywhere early to secure a good spot. Unlike what happens when you spend hours hunting down one of the viewable Sydney Fireworks vantage points on land, being on a boat is great. Boats can easily manoeuvre around Sydney Harbour and pick a great spot for the fireworks. No need to queue up for ages anywhere to get the best view, or pay $1,000+ for a waterfront dinner. Just be on the boat, surrounded by people you love. No stress. Easy breezy.

2. The exclusivity of your own private boat for NYE

Organising a private NYE boat charter allows you to have the most exclusive experience possible as you control the guest list. Simply gather your best mates, hire a boat and have your own private New Year’s Eve party, away from the crowds. You can move around and the boat freely, play your music through the boat speakers or bring a DJ on board. Bonus: you won’t lose anyone as you’re all in the same boat.

3. Great variety of options to suit all group sizes and budgets

Party Catamarans, small sailing yachts, (double decker) motor cruisers and luxury super yachts are a few boat types available for NYE. We currently have over 80 New Year’s Eve boats to choose from. Locking in a boat depends mainly on how many people you have, and what your budget is. The smallest available option caters for 2-4 people but you can go up to cruising with 65+. Price per person for NYE boat hire starts at $400/pp. Want to know more about pricing? Check out the following article: “New Years Eve Boat Hire Sydney | What are the Costs and Pricing?”

4. BYO food & drinks or choose an all incl food & drinks package

One of the best things about New Year’s Eve boat hire is to have VIP firework views whilst having the freedom to choose what you want to eat. Often waterfront restaurants have set menus, super posh (and expensive) food and there are no alternatives. The good thing about boat rental for NYE is that you can choose to BYO. Bring whatever you’d like to eat and drink, you can use the onboard eskies and/or fridges to keep your goods cold. Hand over the food to the captain and crew and they will cook it for you. And if you do want to go all out, you can go for an all inclusive boat hire too! See pricing for all inclusive boat hire in our blog “NYE Costs and Pricing.

5. Convenient pick up and drop off times and locations

Your pick up and drop off will be at a convenient Sydney location. Pickups start from 5:30pm and the latest will be 7pm, depending on the boat you choose. This means you’ve got the day to relax, plan whatever you want to bring on board and take it real easy. There is no need to rush anywhere or queue up. The boat will be waiting for you at the selected wharf. Every boat has different pick up options. We will advise you of your options upon enquiring so you will be well prepared. Your drop off will be around 1am, normally at the same place as the pick up.
