The Sailing Yachts are a world-renowned racing cruiser –they are both fast and comfortable. These yachts are often used for corporate sailing regattas and sailing team building days.

These remarkable yachts are equally at ease for a casual cruise sightseeing around the harbour, and dropping anchor at a sandy harbour beach. The spacious cockpit and the deck areas allow everyone to move around easily while enjoying the performance of this racing yacht.

Modern in its design, these sailing yachts are a true pleasure boat. The clean deck layout and comfortable interior all add up to a fast, functional yacht. Ideal for both Racing and Cruising, a real delight to steer upwind with little more than fingertip inputs required from the helmsman to keep her moving easily through the waves. The winches are well sized and placed effectively for efficient trimming.

Anchor for lunch in a serene bay or relax on the decks and soak up the rejuvenating sun and sea air. Whatever itinerary you choose, your skipper will ensure that the day is thoroughly enjoyable for everyone aboard. You are welcome to arrange your own refreshments, or we can assist.

BAD WEATHER
This is an all weather vessel. The charter would only be cancelled in the event of very extreme weather conditions, such as a cyclone.

SEA SICKNESS
It is fairly uncommon for passengers to suffer from seasickness on a harbour cruise. Should the water become choppy due to windy conditions, the skipper will cruise the more sheltered areas of the harbour. However, if a passenger does become unwell for any reason, we can arrange for them to disembark at the nearest wharf or by water taxi.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
Our chef can accommodate most dietary requirements. However in extreme cases we recommend passengers arrange their own catering.

CRUISING WITH CHILDREN
Children of any age are permitted on-board with parental supervision.

CRUISING WHILST PREGNANT
There are no restrictions with regards to a Sydney harbour cruise whilst pregnant. Just ensure you notify the chef of any dietary requirements.

CHARTER CANCELLATIONS
Please refer to our full terms and conditions.
