Client Reviews

Brian Walsh - Executive Direction of Television @ FOXTEL

Our experience on board Dreamtime completely exceeded our expectations! Smart Cruiser Sydney have provided an incredibly thorough service from beginning to end and created an amazing day for my guests with beautiful décor, amazing food and personalised service from staff on board. We will be keeping Smart Cruiser Sydney’s details on file and be booking them for another “money can’t buy” experience on Sydney Harbour!”

The Boat:

Perfect for any special occasion, Rum Runner is a spacious, fully renovated 47 foot sailing catamaran built for small to medium sized groups wanting to have a unique private cruise on Sydney Harbour. With a large BBQ/hot plate and sound system, it is perfectly appointed for a tailored experience.

Rum Runner’s spacious deck with large shaded and sun-filled areas enables comfort no matter what temperature. Swimming in small bays and beaches is a real highlight that few people get to experience while visiting Sydney.

We Love:

  • Large front deck, ideal for enjoying a day in the sun
  • Great staff, very customer focused that will look after you
  • Great value and delicious BBQ/catering menus available

Other features:

  • Great layout for maximum guests interaction
  • Tables inside the cabin
  • Huge BBQ availalble
  • BYO Alcohol & Food is fine
  • Catering and even soft drinks can be provided by the boat
  • Sound System
  • Sun baking
  • Swimming
