About This Boat

You can enjoy and relax while cruising along the Sydney Harbour aboard a privately styled 43' "Santa Cruz" sports cruiser. Hire our boat for as low as AUD $450 per hour with a minimum of 3 hours charge.

Recently completely refurbished, Santa Cruz is a classic privately styled HMG 43 sports boat suitable for corporate hospitality or private boat hire on Sydney Harbour.

"Santa Cruz" has been painstakingly refurbished from top to bottom to a better than new condition. The contemporary interior flows out to a large aft deck with ample room for up to 16 guests.

It has a large swim platform for casual social cruises, and the enclosed fly-bridge provides a sheltered vantage point to take in the sights of Sydney’s world famous harbour.

A range of menu options are available, from cocktail party canapés and
casual BBQs, to lavish seafood buffets. BYO catering is also available by discussion.

Santa Cruz is a perfect boat for wedding transfers and photo shoots, and is
also available for off shore charter by quotation.
