Built in 1939, Proclaim is one of the oldest timber vessels in Sydney Harbour available for private boat hire. Her classic look and features have been superbly maintained since her first engagement in Sydney Harbour, which was in January 1940 for the Australia Day Sydney Harbour Regatta. Proclaim has always operated as a boat hire vessel, unlike her other timber heritage counterparts, which were built specifically for transfers rather the boat hire events.
Over two levels, you’ll find timeless timber decks and comfortable furnishings, with multiple large entertaining and dining areas.
Proclaims lower level is home to booth seating around a reasonable size timber dance floor, perfect for numerous types of boat hire events. The rear of this area is the perfect place to set up a band or DJ. The timber finishing’s are complemented with a well looked after, deep red carpet, which adds to the comfort of boat hire on Proclaim.

This level also features a fully equip, fully stocked bar and separate male/female toilets.
