How to Hire a Private Boat in Sydney

Sydney is a must-see city - especially when the sun is shining - and what better way to see the sights of this world-famous location than on a luxury yacht? The Sydney Harbour is an unmissable spot; the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the incredible shorefront and swimming spots are unbeatable, one for everyone's bucket list.

If you want to see the Sydney Harbour on a private cruise, hire a luxury yacht from Luxe Cruising Group! Explore our different yacht sizes, catering options, and entertainment packages below to see the city in an unforgettable way and experience the best Sydney Harbour cruise on your trip.

What size yacht should I hire?

The boat that we’d recommend booking depends on what you’d like to do. If you’re looking for a day of tanning, relaxing, and vibing to the beautiful sights that Sydney has to offer, we’d recommend a smaller yacht like our Delfiini. This Finnish-built luxury yacht charter fits up to 10 guests and has incredible amenities to make your day a definite one to remember.
