The Arvor 23 is a great speedboat for bare boat hire for people who prefer to self drive. Ideal for family outings, sightseeing or fishing.

Licensed to carry up to 7 people in total (please note children and babies each count as one person), the boat has all the comforts you would expect including Ipod compatible stereo, enclosed bathroom, hot water deck shower, sun awning, gas cook top, bar fridge, galley gear and dinette. The Arvor sleeps 5 in a double v-berth, a single quarterberth and the dinette folds down to a double berth. We have a mooring in beautiful Taylors Bay available for overnight charters. The boat has a fish finder, fishing license, byo fishing gear. There is an anchor winch, bow thruster and chart plotter.

This self drive speed boat is capable of up to 18 knots, or is limited to 7.5 knots for unlicensed drivers. Charterers do need to have boating experience, or we can offer lessons. Fuel is included in speed limited charters, and is charged at bowser rates for licensed drivers who want to go a little faster.

Using single diesel engines with shaft drives, these are jaunty, low-maintenance, leave-in-the-water wheelhouse craft that have proven reliable over the years.

You get a cabin and, thus, weather protection, bunks in which to spend the night, a small WC and a galley opposite a dinette with views. The cockpit is big enough to cast a line or dine al fresco. Cruise Sydney Harbour without a care in the world aboard this self drive motor boat.
