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 !!

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

My wife and two boys (aged 8 and 12) have just returned from a wonderful week cruising around the Whitsunday Islands with Lyne and John aboard the Sydney Sundancer. 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. We wanted to spend a special night on a boat in the Harbour and picked Sundancer after doing research on various boats and prices and were really looking forward... More

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

Both John and Lynne were amazing hosts. John was always willing to share his knowledge of the breathtaking water front mansions, from their history, to their current owners. I would highly recommend them as i dont think anyone else could have done a better job.

After my boyfriend told me he booked a private charter for just the two of us I didn't know what to expect, but I can't begin to explain how incredible the experience of this charter was. It was beyond my expectations and definitely a relaxed and peaceful day. John and Lynne were absolutely lovely company who had so much information... More

30 of us spent 4 hours on Sydney Sundanceer with John and Lynn on Saturday afternoon sailing around Sydney Harbour, celebrating 3 of our birthdays. We had an EXCELLENT time. Couldn't have been better. John and Lynn were very friendly, relaxed hosts and made us feel very welcome as soon as we stepped on the boat. The vessel itself is... More
