Galene is an ideal choice for Christmas Cruises on Sydney Harbour this year. This 18-metre luxury motor yacht will accommodate up to 90 passengers comfortably for your next Christmas cruise. Recently refurbished, there are numerous spaces on this vessel for your Christmas cruise guests to mingle and let their hair down after a long hard year at work. Christmas cruises are one of the best ways to get everyone together and thank them for their efforts throughout the year. 

You will notice as soon as you step on board that the expansive deck is designed for entertainment. With banquet seating on either side, your Christmas cruise guests will have a large space to mingle and enjoy the views that Sydney Harbour has to offer. The large panoramic windows spanning both sides not only bring in lots of natural light but the exciting harbour atmosphere and views. This deck also provides you with protection against the elements so your Christmas cruise guests need not worry if there’s a little bit of rain.

Use the stairs on the rear deck and you will find an equally expansive upper deck for your Christmas cruise guests to enjoy. Christmas cruises on this deck are enjoyed by everyone with 360-degree views of Sydney Harbour, your guests will be in awe of the natural beauty that Sydney Harbour has to offer and Sydney ever growing skyline. Up Here, your Christmas cruise guest can soak in that afternoon sun and the evening atmosphere as Sydney’s bright lights come on.

One of the few vessels that can accommodate 90 guests for Christmas cruises; BYO is not available on Fridays or Saturdays in November and December. Our friendly staff will be more than willing though, to put a catering package together that is suited to your Christmas cruise.
