Red Pacific (No Licence Required)

Our Red Pacific Pontoon self drive boat hire is one that you can drive yourself. You don’t even need to have a boat licence or any previous boating experience. The Red Pacific has a maximum capacity of 12 guests. This means she is perfect for days out with friends and family. The new triple hull pontoon ensures that you will have a safe and stable drive. This means that you won’t have to worry about it being too rocky when you are driving out on the beautiful Sydney Harbour.

The self-drive Red Pacific Pontoon has an overall length of 7.5 metres. She features comfortable lounges that will seat all guests onboard, and a 4-channel surround sound system. This makes her so comfortable so you can sit back and relax. The non-slip flooring onboard the Red Pacific Pontoon has also been installed to ensure that this vessel is child-friendly. Did you know that you can also bring dogs onboard our self-drive boats? This makes self-drive boat hire on Sydney Harbour the perfect activity for the whole family!

Our new self-drive boat hire can be operated anywhere between Ryde Bridge & Clifton Gardens, so it allows you to enjoy the views of some of Australia’s most iconic landmarks. Imagine sailing past the Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Sydney City Skyline, the beautiful beaches & islands as well as the amazing foreshore homes on your hire. This means that you can experience all of these landmarks from a different perspective than before!

The pontoon doesn’t require a boat licence or boating experience- you just need to be over 21 years of age! Become your own captain and create your own voyage with Sydney Boat Hire on our Red Pacific Pontoon. We will ensure that prior to your hire, you will be equipped with all the knowledge, hints, tips, and recommended routes to make your experience memorable.
