AQA is one of the only super yachts available for Sydney harbour cruises all year around. AQA stands for Age Quod Agis which is Latin for “do what you do well”, and the name is very fitting. Luxury boat hire on AQA provides serious wow factor and guests always step off feeling like celebrities.
The boat itself is a 92ft luxury motor yacht that has been designed specifically for corporate entertainment. Unlike a lot of the charter boats available AQA allows it’s guests to access the whole boat on harbour cruises including the large bow at the front of the boat which is equipped which comfortable seating and a sun bed to lay back and enjoy canapés and champagne.
Inside on the main deck there is a lounge and dining area and, all of the furniture can be removed for harbour cruises that want that bit of extra space on boat charters. There is also an undercover outdoor table setting and bar on this level. The commercial galley is fully equipped to have your on board chef prepare all meals on board your boat charter.
The lower level has three cabins, each with ensuites and the main cabin has a spa bath. The main cabin has a queen size bed and the two other cabins have another queens and two single beds. Boat hire on AQA gives you access to all of the cabins with most people using them to store bags and clothing while they explore the rest of the boat.
The upper deck is probably the most popular area after the bow for harbour cruises. It allows a birds eye view of Sydney harbour and has an outdoor deck to enjoy the weather. There is also a hot tub although most harbour cruises prefer to set it up with cushions and use it as another day bed.
Luxury boat hire is something that needs to be done well. AQA have full time professional staff who are hospitality industry experts, and not just charter boat employees. As the captain rightly pointed out – for Harbour cruises to be successful you can’t just have an amazing boat. The food must be perfect, the drinks must be perfect, the service must be perfect, and the boat must be perfect. If any one of them is missing it just becomes another boat hire experience and is not “really” luxury boat hire.
