MV Southern Star offers great boat hire services for all events and occasions. From the yacht’s delicate design to its large size, you can customise the boat to host weddings, social gatherings, corporate events and even private events.

Your MV Southern Star Sydney boat hire experience will be complimented by the great features that the yacht boasts. The 60 feet long catamaran requires a minimum boat hire of 4 hours and can accommodate a maximum of 200 guests. Admittedly, one of the most luxurious yachts for boat hire on the Sydney Harbour, MV Southern Star will be the perfect boat hire Sydney for any event you have in mind.

Boat hire on MV Southern Star is made much more memorable through the delicious palates offered by the very qualified chef on board. Indeed, previous guests have applauded the catering services in the yacht as being one of the best in the Harbour, and in yachts of the same caliber. Due to the professional and outstanding catering services offered, your boat hire will not include options of bringing your own food. However, you and your guests can bring your own drinks despite the yacht also having a fully licensed bar.

The large catamaran boat hire has two levels. The main level holds the main saloon and entertainment area while the upper level holds the captain’s bridge and a smaller saloon. Due to the design of the yacht, guests can have an uninterrupted 360 degree view of the Sydney Harbour from both the lower and upper decks. Indeed, your boat hire Sydney experience will never be the same once you board MV Southern Star.

The entertainment area in the yacht is also very impressive, capable of fitting all your guests at a go. During your boat hire, you can customise the area to become a sitting area, a dining area or even a dance floor. For convenience purposes, there are two washrooms on the lower deck that guests can use.

Boat hire on MV Southern Star is only for day time cruises. Despite this, you will still enjoy the time spent on the day cruise with your guests. The staff is very friendly and willing and ready to ensure you have a fantastic boat hire experience. From the wood-themed and spacious interior to the catering services and staff relations, MV Southern Star offers the best alternative for an event venue.
