Bella Vista is one of Sydney’s largest charter boats and is one of only two boats available that can cater for boat hire functions with more than 500 people. She comfortably holds 750 people however can hold even more than that for certain boat hire events.
Belle Vista is 115 feet long and was designed so that she was big, beautiful and had the perfect view of Sydney Harbour. This was all considered so that Bella Vista would be the ultimate wedding boat hire facility on Sydney Harbour. She is used for boat hire functions of types but weddings are her specialty and when it comes to boat hire it is hard to go past Bella Vista.
There are two main decks on Bella Vista and both are enormous vast open spaces with views all around for the perfect boat hire experience. The main deck boasts 3 meter high glass windows with just the right amount of angle to allow guests to see up into the sky for boat hire where fire works are a feature of the night. There is a fully stocked bar, a DJ booth, and a dance floor for boat hire where guests want to dance the night away.
The main deck can seat hundreds of guests for formal meals with table service, or even more with boat hire Sydney buffet menus. Access is available to both the fore deck and the aft deck to allow those on the main deck of Bella Vista some fresh air.
Several bathrooms are available on Bella Vista boat hire Sydney and the main bathrooms are accessed via the main deck. When you make your way down to the bathrooms you are instantly taken back by how spacious, modern, and elegant they are. Guests usually forget they are even on a boat hire function and feel more as though they are at a 5 star hotel.
The main deck on Bella Vista Sydney also has direct access to the Galley. The galley on Bella Vista is a complete commercial kitchen capable of catering for up to 1,000 people. Again it is like something out of a hotel and not something you would expect to find on a boat hire event.
Bella Vista Boat hire menus have a huge range of food available and can meet any dietary or cultural requirements. If there is something specific you are after then the boat hire menus can be tailored to your exact needs.
Food is a huge part of boat hire. With such an amazing boat as Bella Vista, boat hire events would be let down to say the least if the food was not the same standard as the boat hire itself. The same goes for drinks. Boat hire for an important event must have great food AND great wines, and it must all be complimented with great service. The idea is not to feel as though you are on boat hire Sydney but to feel as though you are in the finest hotel floating on Sydney Harbour.
At the back of the boat on the aft deck are the stairwells to access to the sun deck. Two huge staircases are on either side of the main doors allowing plenty of space for guests to move freely about Bella Vista. Boat hire on a boat this big can have over 800 people making their way around the boat and it is important that they can move freely without bottle necks.
Once upstairs guests get to see what boat hire on Bella Vista is all about. Day lounges, bars, and 360 degree uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour await. Food service continues upstairs with wait staff walking the sundeck with trays of canapés that have all been freshly made on board Bella Vista.
Dance Party boat hire often sees hundreds of party goers jumping and dancing to the music on some of the biggest boat hire parties on the harbour. The sound system and music on Bella Vista boat hire make for huge parties with the greatest backdrop in the world.
