Great experience when hosting a client boat party. Hired a catamaran for 20-30 people for a corporate event in Nov 2019 and had an amazing time. Thanks for the great customer service from Marc, Cyril and Augustina. The boat was beautiful, bbq and drinks were great. You made sure we thought of everything and we even got a great team picture with the harbour bridge in view.

Was a brilliant day out once again. Thank you for arranging and for making it a smooth day. No issues what so ever! Crew were amazing, and really great with not just getting us around on the harbour but also never saw an empty bowl of chips or platter of food as they just kept on top of it all!

Marc from Smart Cruiser was fantastic from the first-time I spoke with him over the phone. He helped me organise two yachts for my family, One World and the Element for NYE. He was always available to answer questions, gave accurate quotes and was such a pleasure to deal with! I would highly recommend Smart Cruiser as it connects with you some of the nicest, most professional yachts on Sydney harbour!

We had the best time on the boat, and I cannot stress that enough. From the booking process right through to being on the boat, we had the most amazing experience and I will 100% be booking again/referring friends to smart cruiser. During our cruise the Skipper and staff were patient, professional and seriously fun. Handled a group of 30, 20 year golds really well and weren't fun sponges! 10/10 cant wait to book again.

We had a wonderful Private Bucks party over the weekend. The organisation and inclusions were amazing. We were never left without a reply, given the best available rates in comparison to other cruises in Sydney. Very flexible with payment too. Had an awesome time!

I booked the beautiful catamaran, Varuna through Smart Cruiser Sydney for my 40th birthday and it was the best day I could've asked for.From the start Marc was great with helping me decide on a package for the day with food and drink options and ongoing information on the process and plans for the day.On my actual sail day, the crew on-board were very attentive and accommodating to requests. All my guest had a such a good day, with enough room on board for 34 people to move around freely. The lily pad was awesome! Everyone got in the water! Thanks again Smart Cruiser Sydney for helping me start my 40's with a bang!

Having a great time on the water in Sydney Harbour with the gorgeous weather, iconic city backdrop, unbelievable choice of vessels, and amazing food & drink is the easy bit. Finding the right charter company to work with, made even all of the hard work organising this, just as easy and pleasurable. Justine and her team were immaculate and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

We used Smart Sydney Cruiser to book a boat for a transfer to our wedding in March. They were absolutely amazing! The customer service was some of the best I have had in a while. Marc was really wonderful at getting back to me quickly and was really helpful in finding the right boat for us. we chose the Sun Seeker boat which was perfect for us. The Crew were really lovely and happy to help. I highly recommend their services and will definitely use them for our next boating adventure.

A few nights ago I had my 40th on board the Element. My expectations were very high and I never thought they would be exceeded but they were! That night will go down as one of the greatest in my life. My friends and I had the most amazing evening. The food was incredible, the service was second to none. I couldn’t fault it one bit. Dealing with Marc and Debbie was amazing they always made sure I was happy with everything. Cooper was an AMAZING Captain my friends and I had so much fun with him and the crew like he was part of the celebrations! Thank you guys for a birthday I will never forget.

We would like to thank Smart Cruisers for their professional and exceptional service with coordinating the vessels on our wedding day.Mon Cheri was just beyond words - Rodney was a great skipper who ensured that we were delivered to the jetty on time in a safe and enjoyable manner. Nothing was a problem for him and the vessel itself was in immaculate condition.Coast catamaran was the perfect vessel for the cocktails and Harbour cruise. They were extremely attentive, diligent and ensured all guests embarked and disembarked safely. The skipper also made sure the vessel was travelling at an enjoyable speed so it wasn't too turbulent and Kate (owner) was the perfect host on the vessel ensuring that all waiters looked after all the guests. Once again – thank you for the enjoyable experience and we look forward to using Smart Cruisers next time we are back in Sydney for any other events.

Celebrated by husband's 40th in Feb 2020.This was indeed the best 40th ever...had an amazing experience!! Totally loved it! Cyril and Margo were friendly, professional and helpful which enabled us to relax and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. The boat was super neat and clean, the music system was excellent, all the food was managed so well by Cyril and Margo. My guests were so excited and kept telling me it is the best B’day party they have ever attended. Have already recommended you guys to two of my friends. They should call you soon😊. Looking forward to coming onboard again in Summer!

Thank you, Justine!You were so wonderful to work with, I really appreciate your speedy action and turn around time to ensure my team had a fantastic celebration. We had such a great day on the harbour, despite the awful smoke that continues to hang around, everyone loved the day. The drop off in Manly was perfect!Again, really appreciate you helping me to set this up.

I was in a bit of a panic in case we weren't able to find the right catamaran for our party but Justine from Smart cruiser was able to get back to me on the exact vessel I wanted. She was very responsive and attended to every question I had. The crew of the One Ocean catamaran were exceptional on the day too! So friendly and very good with the bbq. Highly recommend both this company and the cat.

This is second time Marc organized a harbour cruise for me and my guests, and after a great first experience couple of years ago for a corporate event, this one was for a personal occasion (birthday) and the team at Smart Cruiser once again overdelivered. Competitive prices, flexibility, responsiveness, clear communication... everything was done to take the pressure off my back and as the organizer of this event, I couldn't have asked for better advice or better service. Already looking forward to my 3rd experience with Marc and his team ! Highly recommended.

We hired the Catamaran for 20 people for a 4 hour cruise for my birthday - was absolutely awesome (even when it rained) - really impressed with the boat, crew and also booking it with Marc was super easy! Highly recommend these guys if you're looking for a cool harbour cruise! Only issue was it wasn't long enough! 😛

The Boat:

“From the moment you step onboard and notice the graceful sweep of her hull, the heavy timbers of her decks and the set of her sails, you can tell the Søren Larsen is something special.” (John L. Coombes, Tall Ships, The Sixteen Square Riggers of Australia and New Zealand, 2006).
