Overview

Proclaim Boat Hire

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. The fore deck is one of the best places to observe the views Sydney Harbour has to offer, the open air space is suitable for up to 15 guests. This level also features a fully equip, fully stocked bar and separate male/female toilets.

Boat Hire on Proclaim also boasts additional seating on the upper level, with benches running the length of Proclaim on both sides and functional, flexible table seating throughout. There is a catering galley as well, available to help finish off any prep work for your BYO food, among other things. This space has two outdoor areas, one open air and one undercover. The area at the forefront of Proclaim offers a unique vantage point and allows guests to see a view only the skipper usually sees from the wheelhouse, which is a premium view of the Harbour. The aft deck is undercover and offers more table seating, while being able to feel the cool sea breeze.

Proclaim boat hire offers a multitude of great catering and beverage options. Specific lunch options, platters, canapés, buffet and BBQ options are available, some having been specifically designed for Proclaim boat hire. Beverage options available on proclaim include cash bars, consumption bars or organising a bar tab for your boat hire experience or packages that start from as little as $9 per person per hour, and contain different wine, sparkling, beer, soft drink and juice choices.

BYO food and beverages is available for your boat hire on Proclaim, however surcharges do apply. Additional staff is required for BYO beverage charters, as they will be serving your beverages over the bar as they would any other charter, adding a rather exclusive touch to a BYO event.

Proclaim boat hire has a variety of live entertainment options available such as a DJ, cover bands, solo guitarists, saxophonists and pianists, plus jazz, string and other contemporary groups. Proclaim also has a great sound system, compatible with AUX and iPod devices, plus for a little extra ‘base’, additional speakers can be hired.

Proclaims crew are always happy and tentative with their guests, ensuring your boat hire journey is one to enjoy and remember.

For a practical boat hire experience for groups of up to 250 guests, you’re sure to have a fantastic time on Proclaim. With a great mix of interior space and outside areas, Proclaim boat hire is one of the best cost effective options for it’s large size.
