New Year is a time to pull out all of the stops – and that’s where luxury yachts come into their own. Crammed with as many features as a high-quality hotel, these vessels provide style and functionality that’ll ensure your New Year’s celebrations stand apart.
From the deck of a luxury yacht, you’ll be able to throw a party that’ll see in the New Year in style. Sit out in the centre of the harbour, and take in the fireworks with a glass of your favourite drink in one hand, in the company of some of your favourite people. What better way could there be to mark the occasion?
Sydney has, in recent years, acquired a stellar (and deserved) reputation for fantastic food and drink. The nightlife in the city, too, is spectacular. But just because you’ve left dry land, doesn’t mean you need leave the city’s best qualities behind; with the help of a fantastic catering staff and an on-board bar, you’ll have your own mobile restaurant that floats across the harbour. The larger yachts have room enough to seat everyone at tables on the deck, and room for even more guests in a cocktail-style setup.
Music forms another crucial ingredient of any New Year’s celebration. This is another area where a chartered yacht can stand apart; virtually every boat comes with a speaker system of some sort – and so all you’ll need to do is plug your mobile phone, tablet or laptop in via a standard 3.5mm jack. If you’re chartering a larger yacht for a larger party, then you’ll find some of them offer an onboard PA system. You might even hire a professional DJ to keep the festivities going throughout the early hours!
It’s easy to opt to take your celebration onto the early hours. The city forms an even more glorious spectacle when it’s lit up at night-time – and if you take your boat further out, you’ll get a sense of seclusion that no other venue could match. With the help of an overnight charter, you’ll even be able to stay out on the water all through the night. Depending on the size of the boat, your skipper will either remain aboard, or leave you anchored, returning to collect you the following morning. If you’d like to make a longer trip, then there are several boats available for charter for several days – so you’ll have time to explore all of what Sydney harbour and the surrounding area has to offer.
New Years is a time when boat charters are in high demand. For this reason, it’s best to book yours well in advance. If you’d like a recommendation, then be sure to get in touch with us – we’ll be able to find you a boat that’ll make your New Year’s celebrations truly special.
