Sydney Sundancer is a ketch rigged motor sailing yacht, thus combining the stability and comfort of a motor boat with the grace and serenity of a sailing yacht, and is licensed to carry in excess of 70 guests plus crew. However, we prefer to limit the number of guests to around 50 thus ensuring everyone's personal comfort at all times (through adequate space). She is super luxuriously fitted in teak below deck (see attachments) and there is a large canopy which extends virtually the whole length of the vessel giving perfect protection in all weathers. We have won the prestigious Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) award for the Best Wedding Reception Vessel in Australia in 2007 & 2010 (this award is judged over 3 years to demonstrate consistent excellence) and in 2008 we were inducted into the ABIA "Hall of Fame" (only 6 wedding suppliers in the whole of Australia have been so honoured). This is particularly noteworthy because ACTUAL Bridal appraisal of our service (in a number of categories including "value for money") in their own wedding, is THE evaluation criteria on which the award is based ! We are also the only charter boat ever, to win both the City of Sydney Council Award for The Best Decorated Boat on New Years Eve, and The Australia Day Council's award for The Best Presented / Best Decorated Charter Boat on Sydney Harbour (2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013), so you will appreciate just how much effort we invest in making each and every cruise a success !!
