Karisma (Covid Capacity: 50 Guests)

Karisma provides a unique experience on the harbour other vessels don’t. Karisma has been built totally on an open plan with one intention and that is to party. For a birthday party or similar function, Karisma is the perfect choice of venue. Built over 2 levels with substantial space on each level this yacht will provide the perfect environment for a party. Boat Hire on Karisma includes endless features. This includes a fully equipped bar, dance floor area, surround sound system, party lighting system and TVs. On the top deck, there is plenty of seating and space for all of your guests to roam freely. One of Karisma’s highlighted feature is her on board jacuzzi.

Onboard Karisma are 2 main entertainment areas and the first to notice is her main indoor area which features a fully licensed bar and dance floor. Be sure to know that there is comfortable seating around which can be moved around to suit your cruise. Moving towards the stern is a wide hallway that features a see-through floor. Karisma is the only boat hire vessel on Sydney Habour that features a see-through floor! At the back deck, there is a large seating area and designated smoking zone. Moving up one level takes you to the large open with panoramic views of the harbour.  This features a wide ample entertainment area, another fully licensed bar, cocktail seating, and a jacuzzi.

With the combination of Sydney Boat Hire’s flexible beverage and catering options, a party on Karisma will be one to be remembered!
