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 !!

We had an amazing time on Lynne and John's magnificent boat, Sydney Sundancer. We chartered the boat for 4 hours for a birthday party. Lynne's organisation made everything to do with food + drinks catering so flexible and easy. On the day everything worked like clockwork. The deckhand on board also helped with waitressing which made the afternoon so leisurely.... More

Over the years we have been on a number of boats on the harbour for Australia Day This year was by far the best. John & Lynne's cruise is unique. The yacht all dressed up the 'Australian music' John & Lynnes hospitality - at the end we felt we have been friends for years. BYO food & drinks reduced the... More

It was definitely the most amazing cruise I've ever had been able to join and enjoy. Lynne and John are absolutely lovely and waited on all their guests hand and foot. John is a fabulous skipper and knows the best spots and the program of the different events during the day to offer you an unforgettable experience. It's also a... More

A days outing to remember... not too long... not too short. As always, the guests seem to all get along in a jovial manner with lots of laughs and memorable moments. Our skipper got us to all the main events on time and in the best position. Doing it this way, what you eat and drink is up to what... More

At the end of August, we spent a marvellous week on the ketch, the Sydney Sundancer sailing round the many beautiful islands of the Whitsundays with our hosts John and Lynne Boyce. For me the highlight was the extraordinarily beautiful corals we saw at various sites round the islands. Such a marvellous range of colours and varieties. John and Lynne... More

My dad and I chose to spent New Year's Eve 2016-2017 with John and Lynne on board of Sydney Sundancer. We had the most pleasant experience. The logistics of the night were planned carefully and executed masterfully in such a way that everybody was on time and we made it to the exclusion zone just in time. John was able... More

We spent the most relaxing day on board Sydney Sundancer. John made sure we were up with the action and we couldn't have asked for a better view of the pre-race preparations and race start. Lunch was absolutely delicious (thanks Lynne) and the entertainment great. We met some lovely people and I couldn't think of a better way to spend... More

John and Lynne welcomed our group of 50 aboard their home and showed us a great time! John's a crack up! Very good on the mic. It was a great day, very accommodating and knowledge of the harbour was exceptional. Highly recommended!

My husband and I( 59 yr.olds) spent 4 glorious nights aboard Sydney Sundancer with Lynn and John. They were the perfect hosts , attentive to our every wish. They sailed with such ease making it relaxing and fun. They made every effort to accommodate getting us to the areas of our preference. Lynn's meals were fabulous in taste and presentation.... More
