Overview

Hiilani is a beautiful old boat with an interesting history available for boat hire on Sydney Harbour. Hiilani has had several refits over the years and is in as good condition today as she was when she was launched. Hiilani’s full time crew make sure that her presentation on boat hire events is immaculate and is to a standard that ensures your guests will be impressed every time.

Hiilani is one of the boat hire options we have where almost every time an inspection is carried out by prospective clients before the boat hire event, they almost certainly choose Hiilani over any other boats every time. There is a warmth you feel on Hiilani that is passed on to anyone who steps on board, whether it be guests using Hiilani for Sydney boat hire or the owners making the most of their pride and joy.

Hiilani uses only the best when it comes to catering and beverages to make sure that your boat hire is a complete experience. Boat hire catering is usually provided by the prestigious Pearl Catering and guests are given a wide variety of menu options to choose from before the boat hire event. An on board chef prepares the food on the spot and your boat hire will have first class wait staff to serve you during the cruise.

Drinks packages are available and there are several options from the basic package to premium packages.. Even the basic package includes imported beers and fine wines so boat hire on Hiilani is always of a quality standard. The premium packages available on boat hire events on Hiilani take the wines a step further including an even higher standard of wines.

If your boat hire plans on Hiilani involve you supplying your own caterers and drinks that is fine. Hiilani is one of the few luxury boats that does allow self catering. There are additional costs involved but you can rest assured that your boat hire can be tailored exactly the way you want.

Before Hiilani was made available for boat hire Sydney she saw many countries around the world. The most significant part of Hiilani’s life was that she was once owned by Shirley Temple. Guests on Sydney boat hire events often ask whether it was the young actress Shirley Temple or just someone with the same name. It was in fact the actress Shirley Temple.

When you board Hillani for boat hire Sydney you will notice instantly how bright and shiny she is. The white paint is polished and waxed weekly and it really makes boat hire that little more impressive. There are teak walk around decks on Hiilani and interestingly there are no steps the whole way around. Rumor has it there are no steps as it was a request when it was built for Shirley Temple.

The walk around decks on Hiilni join the aft deck to the bow and the bow is where guests always gravitate to for Sydney boat hire. There is a relaxing day lounge at on the bow and the high rails allow guests to lean against them looking out at the view and taking in all that Sydney boat hire has to offer.

At the other end of Hiilani the aft cockpit is an undercover area that has tables and chairs. It is a nice breezy space that allows guests to be seated while eating or mingling and there are clear covers to enclose the area if your boat hire event happens to be on a wet or windy day. The clears help make Hiilani a true all weather boat.

Step inside the saloon from the aft cockpit and an inviting lounge area awaits with a dining table that is used for more formal boat hire. The area gets used by those that want to be seated while relaxing with a drink and some canapés but most people head out into the fresh air. Forward of the saloon is the wheel house which is always popular on boat hire to see what it is like to stand behind the wheel of such a magnificent boat. The wheelhouse also has a stairwell heading down to the VIP cabin which has an ensuite that is available on boat hire.

The saloon also has a stairwell that leads down to the guest cabins. Here you will find more ensuites and beds so there is rarely a line to use the bathroom with boat hire on Hiilani. Throughout all cabins on Hiilani and all the stairwells the walls are made from highly glossed mahogany that adds to the warmth of Hiilani on boat hire.

 

The fly bridge on Hiilani is where boat hire guests all try and get to. It has 360 degree uninterrupted views of the surrounding waters and it really does help make boat hire on Hiilani special. The captain drives on Hiilani boat hire feom the Fly Bridge and so long as the circumstances permit he is usually happy for you to have a steer.
