Ali B is one of our most affordable party boats for medium sized groups. One of the key selling points of this boat is its size! Although spacious inside, it’s also narrow enough to cruise close to the shoreline for exploring the many beaches and bays around Sydney Harbour.

The newly renovated 40ft catamaran is suited for both casual events as well as formal occasions. The top deck of the boat boasts bench seating so that you’ll be sure to catch the exquisite views of the harbour. Covered seating and tables are also on the lower deck, making this boat a caterer's dream! The catamaran can hold up to 45 guests and there are both BYO or food and drinks packages as the boat is fully licensed.

A typical daytime cruise would involve anchoring up for lunch in a sheltered bay for lunch and drinks. Create a playlist on your device and connect to the sound system on board and bust a move on the dance floor. Your event on Ali B will be one to remember.

Check out the full list of Ali B’s features! It may be the perfect boat charter for your next event on Sydney Harbour.

Our annual xmas party on a boat needed an upgrade this year due to our staff outgrowing our current personal boat. We were recommended the Ali B and the 2 deck boat didn't disappoint. Selfie Stick for Kris Kringle was the best present on board.
