Client Reviews

Excellent customer service. Staff friendly and super professional. We used 'Spectre' for senior clients during an event, an amazing boat which fitted all our client needs, with a fantastic Captain (Justin) and First Mate (Elodie). Would highly recommend.

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.

We had a wonderful time on the boat and even swim around the boat when parked. The boat was very beautiful, the crew were great and the food as well. I would recommend Smart Cruiser Sydney to anyone looking for a great experience at Darling Harbour and Sydney Harbour

It was such a breeze dealing with Justine from Smart Cruiser to organise our company's Christmas Party. From the minute I showed any interest in any of the charters I received a detailed quote from Justine with a list of boats that she thought would best suit our requirements (large amount of people etc). From there on I had Justine take care of everything which was awesome for me not ever booking a boat party before. The boat itself was incredible and the staff were lovely. We would recommend using Smart Cruiser to anyone thinking of going down the same path with a Christmas Party or any kind of boat charter! Many thanks guys 🙂

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 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.

Marc and his team had that relaxed professionalism with the attention to detail you want when organising and hosting a party. No request was too much in the lead up, which carried through to the day on the harbour with the crew who made sure every minute was memorable. We were on board Adelina, a stunning and roomy boat that we'd book again in a heartbeat. What a way to celebrate turning 30! Thank you.

Everything went tremendously well.The boat arrived on time. Immaculate conditions, both inside and on deck.

A massive thanks to Marc from Smart Cruiser who helped facilitate the event and made it extremely easy for us to organise, and to the crew from the Rum Runner for what turned out to be a fantastic experience. The crew made us feel very welcome in spite of our running a little late and causing a bit of stress around the wharf. They kept the boat clean throughout the trip and made sure that we were safe and looked after without ruining any of the fun. We can’t recommend them highly enough. The business had a brilliant time and really enjoyed our Christmas party.

Marc from Smart Cruiser has helped me out twice now, once for a work event and the other time for my wedding when I tried to source a James Bond boat as a surprise for my husband. Both times I found him extremely helpful and the events went without a hitch. Marc was always quick to get back to me when I had a million questions and even helped me organise catering for my husband and his groomsmen the day before the wedding. Both of the boats I charted were very different, to suits different budgets and events but Marc explained everything really well, not over selling to me. The boats were even better than our expectations. Both were in great condition with knowledgable crew and on time! I would definately recommend Smart Cruiser to anyone who asks.Leanne

We hired The Pearl from Marc's company and I'd like to thank him for his great organisational skills, his prompt responses to our emails and the attention to detail and flexibility he showed to make the event a tremendous success. The boat was fantastic, the food plentiful and delicious, and the crew marvellous. Should we have another great occasion to celebrate, Marc's company will be our first choice. I'd recommend his company to anyone interested in hiring a boat for a special event:)

I contacted Marc in a last minute attempt to organise my daughter's 16th bday party. I had contacted a few others beforehand but frustratingly they just never got back to me. With only a few days left I thought it was going to be almost impossible to organise a party with teenagers and carry it off. Marc was fantastic!! He was calm and experienced enough to know that it could be done. We were put on the Bennelong and everything went off without a hitch (although a little bit more cruise time and a little less stationery time would have made it better, but that was in no way a discredit to Marc). I will definitely without a doubt recommend Marc to anyone who is looking to hire a boat without any hassles.

Booking with Smart Cruiser was very straightforward - communication and payment was all very easy. Marc was easy to contact and responded very quickly to all of my questions! I have already recommended Smart Cruiser to a number of friends. Our boat was the Cabaret and I cannot recommend that highly enough - the staff were excellent, very attentive and efficient. I will definitely use both Smart Cruiser and Cabaret for future events. Thank you Marc and the Cabaret team!

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!

I am so glad we found Marc and his team at Smart Cruiser. If it wasn't for him, my CEO would not have named this Christmas Party the best one he has ever had in the 20+ years our company has been trading. Everything went super well, the weather was beautiful, lovely views and excellent boat decor. All staff enjoyed tremendously and are still raving about how amazing the party was. This wasn't possible without Marc's fantastic customer service and prompt responses to all the concerns I had. He made it easy for me and not once did I stress in the process of planning. I highly recommend these services, I promise they will not disappoint. Thank you so much again, Marc and your team... you guys are awesome!

We just had our Christmas Party, everyone said it's best Christmas Party ever. This is first time we throw a party on boat, and I've had zero experience to deal with any cruise agent. Justine Espagne from Smart Cruise Sydney have been very responsive for all the questions I sent over, I think I "spam" her more than 30 emails on all sorts of enquiries. She is responsive and patient and thoroughly explained every single one. The boat is spacious and clean. Skipper and Chef are professional and friendly. If I am going to throw another party on boat, I will definitely choose Smart Cruise Sydney.

Smart cruiser hands down is the best company to book any boat hire! Marc went above and beyond to ensure I find the perfect vessel for my event! I had celebrated my 25th on the Enigma vessel and not only was the boat absolutely stunning but the crew itself (David) were so amazing and accommodating! I will surely be going through Smart Cruiser to book any private boat hire in the future! I have already recommended this company and also the Enigma boat to all my friends and family. Thank you so much Marc for ensuring my event went off without a hitch! Cannot fault!! 100/10 !!! - Florence

The packaged you recommended worked a treat, the boat was fantastic I loved how we could fit everyone outside but also everyone inside. Angela the DJ was great! she played whatever we wanted and she was also an amazing photographer for us and took some great group shots of everyone. The staff on board were professional and the food was greatCan't praise how the party went any more, my only complaint is I wish we booked it for longer!and thank you Marc for all your help and answering my many questions, you were so professional and helpful 🙂

The cruise I booked with Marc and Smart Cruiser Sydney was a huge success, mostly due to Marc's assistance. He was prompt in responding to my queries, professional to work with and knew exactly what we needed after our first conversation. The cruise was the highlight of their trip to Sydney and if I were ever needing to book a cruise in Sydney again, I would have no hesitation in giving Marc a call.

The Boat:

Built to the highest international standards for luxury yachting, Sydney Sundance is more like a floating private hotel. There is a very large foredeck to laze away the days in the sun, while the aft deck has plenty of room for up to 12 people to settle back, enjoy a sunset and delicious dinner. The huge rear transom area means some of the most enjoyable snorkelling and swimming you could ever have are just a step away. “Toys” like floating arm chairs, fishing gear, masks, snorkel and fin are standard equipment.

We Love:

  • Combine the confort & stability of a motor boat with the grace and serenity of a sailing yacht.
  • The deck is so large that Sydney Sundancer is licensed to carry more than 70 guests (plus crew), however the owners prefer to limit the number of guests to around 50.
