s Boat Hire On State of the Art【Sydney Harbour】- Sydney Boat Hire

State of The Art

Boat hire on State of the Art is just that, a state of the art vessel that is currently offering private charters in Sydney Harbour. The luxurious 65ft motorboat was specifically designed the entertain and marvel groups up to 45 guests for cocktail events, or 20 guests for formal events.

Onboard, State of the Art has well thought out features that will leave you and your guests feeling comfortable and catered for. She is suitable for all year round due to her air conditioning throughout.

She has multiple entertaining areas, including; a large cockpit, an expansive rear wooden deck, and an alfresco top deck. Her new refurbishment features polished wood flooring, designer furniture, and contemporary design throughout.

State of the Art is perfect for hosting events as she offers great functionality onboard. Onboard is; a commercial kitchen, fibre-optic light panels, audio-visual system, and plugins for presentations. This makes her great for not only private social events, but also corporate events.

If you are wondering about catering, State of the Art has a range of options. They include catered menus and the ability to BYO. She is also a fully licenced vessel, which means that if you don’t want to BYO alcohol, you can make use of the licencing and bar onboard.

State of the Art is a fantastic option for boat hire in Sydney Harbour. We recommend her for birthdays and corporate events.
