Boat Hire with Any Boat.

Any Boat has been around for some time now and specialises in boat hire of all types throughout Australia with a heavier focus on the Sydney Harbour market.  Any Boat aims to make boat hire simple and easy to organise, and our end goal is to make sure that you have the best boat hire experience possible, with the least amount of fuss.

Any Boat has well over one hundred boats available for boat hire throughout the country and they are available in all major cities all year around.  Our boat hire options range in size from boats that accommodate boat hire for 2 people right up to 900 people.  The boat lengths go as high as 130 feet.

During the summer months Sydney Harbour is the boat hire capital of Australia and Any Boat organises hundreds of cruises over the season for a vast array of boat hire occasions.  As you would expect boat hire on weekends is most popular and it is advised that you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.  Boat hire on Friday nights, and all day and night on Saturday is often booked months in advance but there is usually something available last minute for people organising boat hire with little time to spare.

Sunday boat hire is one of the best times you will have on Sydney Harbour and for some reason it never seems to be overly busy.  If you are wanting a boat hire event  for no particular reason then a Sunday session on the water is the way to go.  There are far less boats out and about and there is a bigger pool of boat hire options to choose from.  It is a great opportunity to get out with friends and have a beautiful afternoon on the water under the sun anchored in a small bay enjoying some swimming and a bbq.

Outside the summer months boat hire in Sydney is busiest with corporate events and fishing charters.  Some of the best fishing is during the winter months and we can organise boat hire on fully crewed boats that supply everything.  It is a walk on walk off scenario that enables you to enjoy boat hire with a professional fisherman who knows exactly where to take you to get the best fish.

Corporate events and product launches are also a big part of the boat hire activity on Sydney Harbour and they often end up with large boat hire packages designed entertain bigger groups and wow them with what boat hire on Sydney harbour has to offer.

|One of the other more popular boat hire options through winter is sailing in the Whitsundays in far north Queensland.  It is one of the few places where self drive boat hire is available.  Any Boat works closely with quite a few boats leaving from Hamilton Island and can arrange both sailing boat hire and motor boat hire.  For sailing boat hire there is the option to enjoy your stay on either a catamaran or a monohull yacht and motorboats are all catamarans.

All of the other states also have boat hire available throughout the year and no matter where it is, Any Boat is here to make sure your boat hire is going to be a memorable event.

You can enquire directly on any of the boats or just send us an email or pick up the phone and give us a call any time.

Any Boat New Years Eve Cruises

When it comes to a Sydney Harbour itinerary, the New Years Eve Celebrations and the fireworks show would have to be up there with the most important events on the social calendar – and with a Harbour that looks like Sydney’s – it not that surprising to understand why. Take two of the most recognisable landmarks, the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge and place them centrestage and what you are left with is a night not to be missed.

New Years Eve Cruises are without doubt the best way to see this year’s Sydney Fireworks spectacular because you avoid the sea of revellers that line every inch of foreshore and every available vantage point from here to Timbuctoo.

Trust me when I tell you that if you are not already in your spot ready to watch the New Years Eve fireworks by say 5pm – a good 7 hours before midnight, then  you will not get a good spot.

 Or you could just book your ticket on a Sydney New Years Eve Cruise and casually stroll down to the wharf around 7pm to get your seat – which then moves you into position where you are literally front and centre.

Fighting a sea of tourists and locals to catch a glimpse of the new years fireworks or settling in to a night of fun and excitement. I know which sounds cruisier to me ;)

Here at Any Boat we are lucky enough to have partnered with some of the best New Years Eve Harbour Cruise boats so as to make sure we have the right ticket and boat to suit your individual needs and budget.
