Varuna is a brand new Seawind 1160 resort that is now available for boat hire on Sydney Harbour. In survey for 40 guests and 2 crew, Varuna is the quintessential entertainment vessel. With a large open and unobstructed foredeck and specially designed lounge seating, Varuna enters the Sydney boat hire market with one aim – fun, fun and more fun.

As soon as you step on board you will be welcomed by that new boat feel. Surrounded by crisp white lines and purpose built furnishings, Varuna will not disappoint as a boat hire option. There is a large BBQ at the rear of the vessel and the crew will be happy to cook for you at your request. The fully equipped galley will come in handy as you get those nibblies ready. A fridge and two large eskies will keep your drinks chilled for the duration of your boat hire cruise.

Equipped with a state of the art sound system with internal and external speakers, you can connect your iPod and set the mood and atmosphere yourself. There is no better way to spend a sunny afternoon on Sydney Harbour than on a boat hire vessel such as Varuna. A swim ladder gives you easy access to the sparkling harbour water and a kayak is available for your enjoyment. When you are done, jump back on board and make use of the outdoor shower. In need of a break? Why not lounge around on the foredeck trampolines and enjoy that Sydney sun.

There are various options for catering on Varuna or you can decide to BYO your food and beverages. Our friendly and experienced team is happy to work with you to create a package that is suitable for you and your event.

As with most vessels of this calibre, stiletto high heels and shoes with marking soles are not permitted to be worn on Varuna. Best advice is to come in something comfortable that you can kick off and make the most of your day on the Harbour.

NYD Boat
I have organised the NYD boat for a group of 30+ friends for the past 5 years. This is the first time I hired Varuna and it defiantly won't be the last. The open plan style suited our needs and made for a great party atmosphere. The crew were super friendly and so accommodating to cruising around the Harbour as well as stopping at a number of great swimming spots. Thanks ANY BOAT for a fabulous day.
