Santa Cruz

If you are looking for an intimate location on Sydney Harbour then here it is. Santa Cruz is a 43 ft sports cruiser built in Sydney specifically for boat hire.

Recently refurbished to the highest standard, Santa Cruz is the perfect entertaining vessel for groups of up to 18 guests who are looking for an affordable and relaxing, yet lush boat hire experience.

In 2013 Santa Cruz had on board Britain’s Prince Harry, who was here for the Royal Australian Navy International Fleet Review. Prince Harry was on board Santa Cruz for a transfer to Kirribilli House for a meeting with Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

This vessel offers a luxurious main deck studded with cushioned seats, designer furniture and state-of-the-art equipment guaranteed to meet your every demand. Open the large sliding doors in the main deck and get greeted by a 360 degree view of your surrounding.

The main deck opens up to the vast fore-deck area where passengers are welcomed by the sheer power and majesty that is mother nature. This vessel is operator driven, thus ensuring the best experience all year round. 

Furthermore, Boat Hire on Santa Cruz is made extremely comfortable thanks to the climate control air-conditioning, which makes Santa Cruz a suitable boat hire vessel all year round.

Before lunch, drop the anchor in a beautiful bay and swim off the large swimming platform on the back deck. The swimming ladder allows for easy access to and from the water, plus there is a fresh water wash down for after your swim.

Boat Hire on Santa Cruz has a new Bose custom installed sound system, with speakers throughout the vessel. The system is Bluetooth, AUX and iPod/iPhone compatible. There is also a CD Player, TV, DVD and VCR on board.
