There are usually 20 chairs appropriately located around the top deck.
Sydney Sundancer’sunique service includes complimentary photos taken during your cruise. Images will be handed to you at the conclusion of the cruise on a USB stick, so that you can easily distribute them to your friends and family.

    What cool storage is there onboard?

    There is very little room for storing food in our fridge. However you are welcome to place any food that needs to be chilled in the supplied eskies.

    Is there a BBQ onboard?

    Yes we have a barbeque on board. There is also a medium sized barbeque but charterer is responsible for the cooking / barbequing and all handling of food and drink when self – catering, because of Covid 19 regulations which are in force regarding the serving and cooking of food. Best for the charterer to call us prior to the charter for advice and discuss what they intend to cook

    Is drinking water included?

    No guests must bring their own water for BYO charters

    Can I dropoff supplies at the boat before the charter?

    Only in special circumstances. Additional charges apply. Call us for details.

    Are BYO spirits allowed?

    Yes guests can BYO spirits but the charterer is responsible for advising all guests that Sydney Sundancer is a licensed premises. Therefore, all laws relating to alcohol consumption remain in force even though your guests have brought their own drinks. Any decision made by the captain regarding intoxication will be made in the best interests of safety and the enjoyment of the remainder of the ships company. By law, the captain is responsible and his decision final.

    Is ice provided onboard?

    No ice is not provided. Charterer must BYO ice. We suggest 1 KG per guest and definitely to bring their drinks aboard cold.

  • Is there a sound system and what connectivity is there?

    We have 4 x twin sets of speakers aboard. Two on the aft deck, 2 on the main mast and 2 in the cockpit. There is another two the saloon area. We have an iPod with over 3,500 songs, guests iPhones and androids can be connected directly to our system or via Blue Tooth.

    Are there any water toys onboard?

    No, but guests are welcome to BYO toys and we do have an electric pump which they are welcome use to inflate. Guests are responsible for inflating and then later deflating "blow up toys" before returning to the wharf.

    Can we have a DJ?

    Yes, providing the DJ's equipment is not too large. Charterer is reminded that when we are at anchor in a bay or close to other vessels we cannot have the music too loud because we have to be mindful of how sound travels over water and that both nearby vessels may not have the same taste in music and also homes on the waterfront will not appreciate very loud music! However when cruising in the middle of the harbour music can be louder.

    Is swimming allowed?

    Yes swimming is allowed. Just bring your own towels. We have a very large swimming platform at the rear of our yacht with a long ladder making it very easy to get in and out of the water.

  • Is there a heating equipment onboard?

    We have a small gas stove with an even smaller two shelved oven underneath, it is really only suitable for re-heating already cooked food. If used, there will need to be someone in galley the whole time the oven is in service (for safety). Whilst they are on duty in the galley, they may feel very isolated from the fun everyone else is having up on deck because no drinks are permitted to be taken below deck. If clients want to use the oven (internal dimensions are 370mm wide by 400mm deep and the vertical distance between shelves is 90mm), I suggest they use appropriately sized tin foil baking trays. Using the oven to re-heat food is quite time consuming especially for large groups.

  • Smoking - is it permitted and are there any restrictions?

    Smoking is permitted ON DECK ONLY, and preferably down wind from other guests. We do provide ashtrays which must be used at all times. Absolutely no ash or butts are to be discarded into the harbour!

    Footwear - are there any restrictions?

    Please be advised that black rubber soled shoes, stilettoes, or high wedged shoes are not permitted to be worn on board.
