A Luxury Yacht on Sydney Harbour

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Australia’s most awarded charter yacht ‘Sydney Sundancer’ is the ideal way to enjoy Sydney Harbour.

For more than 30 years friendly owners, Lynne and John Boyce have shared their knowledge and experience of Sydney’s wonderful waterways. Their luxury yacht combines the stability and comfort of a motor boat with the grace and serenity of a sailing yacht that is ideal for up to 50 guests.
However, unique features offer small groups an enchanting experience and overnight charters are also welcome. Private charters can be BYO, or guests can enjoy Lynne’s superb catering (she is a published cook book author) that Sydney Sundancer has an amazing reputation for. Fine dining on the aft deck for up to 10 guests, or for larger numbers, either finger food or buffet style, which guests can choose from a wide choice of menus.

Ticketed cruises are offered for special events such as Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve, and Australia Day. Lynne and John’s reputation for exceeding their guests expectations and delivering a unique Sydney experience is unsurpassed.

When the wedding ceremony is conducted aboard the yacht, the captain usually positions ‘Sydney Sundancer’ on Sydney Harbour immediately in front of the Opera House, so that its two giant arches form a massive ‘Cathedral’ behind the Bride and Groom. All guests have a clear view and can really feel part of the ceremony.

Their unique service includes free wedding photographs taken during the Harbour cruise. John and Lynne have introduced a ‘one stop package’, where they take the burden from your shoulders leaving all the arrangements in their capable hands. They also offer a unique wedding package which includes optional overnight accommodation and champagne breakfast, served aboard the following morning. Thus, ‘Sydney Sundancer’ becomes your own private luxury floating hotel for your wedding evening.

Boxing Day is the best day of the year to cruise Sydney Harbour because of the colourful start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, the Southern Hemisphere’s most prestigious yacht race!

It takes all John’s skills, as a former yacht racing champion, with more than 30 years experience, to position Sydney Sundancer right on the start line so you will have a clear uninterrupted view of the competing racing yachts as the starting gun is fired.

Then, as the armada of spectator craft surges forward, John maintains this exclusive position alongside the racing yachts so that all guests aboard Sydney Sundancer appreciate and almost become, part of the action and experience this thrilling event!

All this, plus a delicious buffet meal, drinks served throughout the cruise, plus live entertainment, provides an unforgettable day!

Each year Australia’s pyrotechnic professionals improve their performance, and from Sydney Sundancer’s expansive decks, you will gain an uninterrupted view of all the evenings activities. You will enjoy a fabulous gourmet meal accompanied by Bollinger champagne and the finest wines served all evening by an attentive crew.

With a maximum of 50 guests (even though Sydney Sundancer is licensed to carry more than 70 passengers plus crew) you will join a select group and enjoy a party atmosphere second to none! Whether you are a couple or with a group, rest assured you will be made to feel very welcome by friendly hosts Lynne and John Boyce, so that when midnight arrives, you will feel you are celebrating with friends.

While more than 1 million people are crowded into every waterfront location possible, (some guarding their positions for many hours) by joining Sydney Sundancer’s New Years Eve cruise you can comfortably be assured that you will have “the best seats in the house!!”
