Charter your own private luxury catamaran to relax and enjoy the New Year’s Eve Sydney fireworks without having to compete with hundreds if not thousands of others vying for limited space. We charge a set price for this charter. The set price is for a BYO charter (food & beverage) and includes use of BBQ & use of least one of our 3 fridges (including one freezer). It also covers any assistance from the skipper and hostess during the charter for which most of the time we will be anchored. A fully catered menu is also available. Click here for full details.
The charter times can be tailored to suit you, but generally we pick up passengers at 6pm and drop them off between 1.15am and 1.45am (around 7.5 hours) due to movement restrictions imposed by the Police & NSW Maritime on departing the restricted area that we will be located in.
Option 1 – is to anchor the yacht in Farm Cove earlier in the day to secure a better viewing position. We will do this without any extra cost except the charterer would then have to organise and pay for a water taxi to get their party to the yacht. Drop off would be at the wharf of their choice (our preference is Lavender Bay wharf especially on NYE when it is bedlam everywhere else). We will also pick up food and beverage at the yacht at Lavender Bay wharf the day before and have it ready or we can purchase food and beverage as required by client for 20% on cost.
Option 2 – is a normal pick up and drop off but securing the yacht in the optimum location is less likely as other private boats anchor early in the day to secure the best spots, although a good spot could be found nearby. Our yacht is one of the largest permissible in Farm Cove at NYE but if this location is not suitable for clients then we can go to any other spot we can get, but in our opinion Farm Cove is the best spot (between Opera House & Lady Macquarie’s chair i.e. around Botanical Gardens).
Option 3 – Do not want to charter a whole boat just buy tickets on Skippers Afloat!
