This month we’re extremely proud to be celebrating two decades of operation on Sydney Harbour. During that time, we’ve hosted 2,800 parties, popped 75,000 champagne corks, welcomed 112,000 passengers on board and served 900,000 canapes!
We’ve also welcomed numerous local and international celebrities on board, including HRH The Prince of Wales, Sir Richard Branson, President George W Bush, Will Ferrell, Robert De Niro, Sir Elton John, Tom Cruise, Kylie Minogue, Vince Vaughn, Michael Buble, Ashton Kutcher, John Travolta, the late Whitney Houston, the late Michael Jackson and the late Robin Williams.
Our two vessels, the 92 foot Motor Yacht A.Q.A. and 65 foot Motor Vessel State of the Art, have been the venues for a number of high-end corporate events, including five consecutive years hosting ROLEX VIPs during the ROLEX Sydney to Hobart, Australian movie premieres for American Pie 2, Battleship, High School Musical, and Johnny English, and corporate events for the GWS Giants, NOVA Entertainment, Jose Cuervo Tequila, Virgin Money, the Invictus Games, and United Airlines and THALES.
To mark our twentieth year, we completed nearly $750,000 of upgrades across both boats.
The A.Q.A. received an entire navigation equipment upgrade by Garmin Australia, main fly bridge and helm redesign and refurbishment, fly bridge lounge refit; main aft deck lounge refit, white wash oak timber flooring throughout the boat; reverse cycle air conditioning system upgrade; and installation of draft beer facilities, serving award-winning Hope Estate pale ale; among its refurbishments.
State of the Art saw upgrades to the timber floor and paneling, air conditioning system; and bow sunbed and lounge suite.
Our commitment to our guests is to continue to offer the most luxurious experience with the most experienced crew. Thanks to all our loyal clients who have been with us on this journey. We can’t wait to see what the next 20 years brings!
Senior Captain Simon Loneragan.
