Client Reviews

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.

Other features:

  • Length: 16.26 metres
  • Up to 50 guests for cocktail function
  • Private shower and two toilets
  • Fully equipped galley
  • Fully licensed bar
  • Extensive sound system
  • 2 double staterooms with ensuites
