Check Availability

Hestia is a well designed sailing catamaran currently legally limited to 33 guests but is actually larger and more stable than the other catamarans in the fleet with a max capacity of 30 guests.

One of the key attributes of this catamaran is the amount of seating space available from the 4 main areas - the rear cockpit, saloon area, fly bridge and the unique pod area by the front trampolines.

The boat has recently had a major refit to give it a modern and homely feel and is well equipped to cater for a range of occasions for which your friendly hosts are keen to impress. ...

Jemma Carson - Party Boat
We hired the Hestia for my 30th it was perfect weather and we found a little bay to pull up in and swim and have a few drinks, a barbecue and a dance to some tunes. All of my guests have thanked me for such a great day. I would do this again tomorrow, it was the best way to celebrate my birthday. Thank you so much Phil, Archy and Doug
Malcolm Gay - Party Boat
The boat, skipper and especially the crew, Archie, were fantastic. I must say that Archie was amazing, so helpful and obliging, absolutely suited to her role, one of the most delightful lady's I have meet. We all had a terrific day. It would be good to perhaps have a commentary of the important and historical sights of the harbour. Three cheers to all concerned.
Christian Adams - Casual Cruise
An exceptional day on a great boat, with a friendly Crew. I can only recommend it - perfect day! Beautiful spots, a nice swim, good music and great service combined with a great BBQ and a lot of drinks! Thanks for the special sightseeing Tour with our tourists!
Sharne Patient - Christmas Party Cruise
Our Staff had a great xmas party, unlike a restaurant we actually got to spend time mingling with everyone, plus had our food cooked for us and enjoyed a fantastic time on the stunning waters of Sydney Harbour.
