The MV Bennelong is a classically built and beautifully restored vessel that was purpose-built for charter cruises upon Sydney Harbour – which means expansive decks to ensure all guests are able to catch the spectacular views. Over the years, the MV Bennelong has hosted some of Australia’s top businessmen and women, local politicians and foreign dignitaries, and even celebrities such as Sir Elton John. Her unique character and professional crew mean both locals and international guests have returned to enjoy subsequent New Years Eves on board. Some of her features include:

  • An expansive rear deck and open rooftop area offering plenty of room to see the spectacular Sydney Harbour fireworks displays
  • Capacity for up to 130 guests in a cocktail setting, with an open layout spread across three different areas
  • A large undercover lounge area featuring plush leather seating and beautiful teak panelling – a comfortable place to be seated out of the elements
  • A flat-screen TV with state-of-the-art sound system including iPod connectivity – simply add your own playlist, or allow us to provide a quality DJ for you
  • Classic styling and beautiful all-timber construction, a unique vessel with elegance and character.
