Karisma is a very modern boat with 360 degree views from the upper and lower levels. A lot of money has gone into making this a versatile and high end boat suitable for both corporate style events and classy boat parties!

Karisma is an open plan boat with everything onboard that you might need to impress guests while cruising Sydney Harbour. This includes a large screen and microphone in the air conditioned bar lounge area. For the parties there's a dance area with great lighting indoors and out. For an extra charge and onboard Jacuzzi can be arranged.

Karisma is one of the more stable boats available and so it is perfect for seated dining or guests who may be sensitive to boat travel. Dining can be done over one or 2 levels, at tables either casually or more formally. The bar on Karisma stocks quality drinks and the service is of a very high standard.
BYO cruises are max 50 guests and food needs to be pre-preapred/platter styles
Check out the full list of Karisma’s features! It may be the perfect boat charter for your next event.

Sophia Otto - Birthday Cruise
Thank you so much for a fantastic evening. From start to finish Pippa was so helpful in assisting me to organise this event for my 30th. I was honestly amazed as were my guests with the boat. Photos do not do the size justice. I could not have picked a better boat for the evening. The staff were fantastic and it was such a great evening. Thank you :)
Nick Harvey - Bucks Party
Great day out on the harbour. Crew were fantastic and would highly recommend.
Anonymous - Casual Cruise
All aspects of the boat and food were great except for the Jacuzzi which was half empty to prevent sloshing which defeats the object. Service in the party planning as well as the crew on the day was fabulous.
Peter Varvaressos - Christmas Party Cruise

Daniel Kumar - Party Boat
