Sail Sydney Harbour on your own private catamaran


Welcome aboard Alila, a stunning private catamaran that can take you out onto the water, to experience world-famous Sydney Harbour in three unforgettable ways:

Catamaran hire

Private charters, corporate events, family get-togethers, grand romantic gestures or just an exciting yet wonderfully relaxing way to see Sydney’s sights: this is boat hire done beautifully. Get in touch to see how we can work with you, to organise the perfect day or evening out, with the option of our amazing five-star catering.

Overnight stays

Escape the everyday with a magical night spent alone aboard Alila, moored in one of Sydney Harbour’s prettiest bays and sleeping in Alila’s unique open-air saloon.

Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise

Why limit yourself to a restaurant for lunch, when you can dine on food catered by one of Sydney’s top chefs – award-winning Grant King of Gastro Park and MasterChef fame – as you cruise past the city’s iconic sights by luxury catamaran? It’s easier than you think.
