Owner description: Sydney Sundancer is a ketch rigged motor sailing yacht, thus combining the stability and comfort of a motor boat with the grace and serenity of a sailing yacht, and is licensed to carry in excess of 70 guests plus crew. However, we prefer to limit the number of guests to around 50 thus ensuring everyone's personal comfort at all times (through adequate space). She is super luxuriously fitted in teak below deck (see attachments) and there is a large canopy which extends virtually the whole length of the vessel giving perfect protection in all weathers. We have won the prestigious Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) award for the Best Wedding Reception Vessel in Australia in 2007 & 2010 (this award is judged over 3 years to demonstrate consistent excellence) and in 2008 we were inducted into the ABIA "Hall of Fame" (only 6 wedding suppliers in the whole of Australia have been so honoured). This is particularly noteworthy because ACTUAL Bridal appraisal of our service (in a number of categories including "value for money") in their own wedding, is THE evaluation criteria on which the award is based ! We are also the only charter boat ever, to win both the City of Sydney Council Award for The Best Decorated Boat on New Years Eve, and The Australia Day Council's award for The Best Presented / Best Decorated Charter Boat on Sydney Harbour (2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013), so you will appreciate just how much effort we invest in making each and every cruise a success !!

My dad is almost 70 and has dreamed of going to a Sydney to Hobart Race for almost 50 years. So you can imagine his surprise and shock when we gave him a day with John and Lynne on the Sydney Sundancer for Christmas last year. I knew from my first contact with John that I had made the right... More

I took my two adult sons on a once in a lifetime evening cruise to see the Sydney fireworks. Ito was everything we hoped it would be. The captain, his wife (the fabulous chef) and crew were wonderful! The drink was top shelf and non-stop. The food was excellent and plentiful! Many of the guests were repeat. The overall experience... More

What a fantastic experience! We had an absolutely wonderful evening about the Sydney Sundancer and were looked after fantastically by John and Lynne. We had first class views of the Harbour Bridge and the fireworks. The Bollinger was flowing all night and the food was first class. I think my partner actually had third helpings of Lynne's Hazelnut and Strawberry... More

From reading the last 2 reviews I think our September week came between them. We had a lovely time and it was truly a vacation- even though we did take the “washing up” option. No phone, no schedule, nothing but sea and sun and fish fish fish! Also amazing coral, soft coral and sponges! Moose was christened “super snorkeler” by... More

With a private charter for a week, we were able to experience some fabulous snorkelling on reefs, where they used their experience to guide us 'first timers' to just the right... More

It's taken me a long time to write this review. Wasn't going to till I read a couple of superb reviews. 6 of us spent New Year's Eve 2013/14 on Sundancer.

Dear “BasilEdinburgh” I want to thank you for your review on tripadvisor. I would have responded earlier (as you probably observed in our initial correspondence, we answer all emails promptly) but Lynne and I only became aware of your review on the first day of an overseas holiday. I did not want to respond until I had an opportunity to... More
