Varuna

Boat hire on Varuna is a fantastic option for entertaining on Sydney Harbour. This brand new Seawind 1160 resort is able to accommodate up to 40 guests and 2 crew members. Once you step onboard Varuna, you will be astounded by the look and feel of the crisp white lines of the new boat. With purpose-built finishings, your experience of Varuna will be sure to impress you and your guests.

Varuna is perfect for entertaining due to her amenities. She has a state of the art sound system with both internal and external speakers that you can blast your perfectly curated party playlist on. You and your guests can take a dip straight in the harbour with an easy access swim ladder. If you aren’t in the mood for swimming, you can make use of the kayak onboard too. After your swim or kayak, rinse the saltwater off with the outdoor shower and dry under the sun on the trampolines.

After you have some fun in the sun, why not grab a bite to eat? Varuna has a large BBQ on the rear of the vessel, and the crew will be happy to cook for you at your request. The fully equipped galley is also perfect for any light snacks that you wish to prepare on board. Varuna also comes equipped with two large eskies for you to keep your drinks chilled. If you decide that you would like to be catered for instead, there are also various catering and beverage packages available.

We recommend boat hire on Varuna for birthdays, Australia Day, Christmas Day, and more.
