    There are also vessels equipped with BBQs for your event and the skipper will help to cook the BBQ. Get in touch with our team and we can assist with your catering questions. We recommend boat friendly food that requires minimum preparation including platter foods and canapé style meals.

    Most of the BYO boats also have kitchen equipment and cutlery available.

  • What do you recommend we bring on board our boat charter?

    Depending on your event, we recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, swimsuit, towels, jumpers or jackets and sunglasses. 

    Most vessels will ask you to take your shoes off prior to boarding or wear white soled shoes only. Stilettos and high heels are generally not allowed on board. 

    If you have arranged a BYO charter, most of the vessels will supply cups, plates and cutlery as part of the BYO service charge. You will need to bring along ice or arrange ice. 

  • What do we do if it’s raining?

    The boats have undercover and indoor areas to protect you from the elements. 

    Keep the weather in mind when you book your event as this is something that is outside of our control and your event will still go ahead if it is raining. If the weather is dangerous for boating, MV Luxury Yacht Charters will decide on the morning of the charter whether it will be postponed.

  • Can we play music on board the boat?

    Certainly! You can play your own music during your boat charter and all of our vessels are equipped with sound systems which are compatible with most devices. Get in touch if you have any questions about music. 

  • What times can we book our Sydney Harbour boat charter for?

    Generally there are two time slots each day for a boat charter on Sydney Harbour are afternoon charters and evening sunset boat hire events.

    Afternoon charters usually start at 12pm or 1pm, evening charters are from 5:30pm onwards depending on the availability of the vessel. Most of our bookings are a minimum of 4 hours, however some of our vessels offer a 2 or 3 hours charter.

    We can assist to book the most suitable time for your event and confirm availability with each of the vessels as part of our service.
