Our two beautiful pleasure craft are designed to set the scene for your perfect function. From wedding ceremonies and receptions to discrete corporate functions away from the stress of the city, we'll help organise everything for your private charter, or step aboard one of our regular pleasure cruises; dinner dances and lunch cruises on Port Phillip Bay to Williamstown.

Take your pick. Whichever boat you choose we'll put together a package tailored to your specific needs and ensure your guests have a wonderful and memorable experience.

• The MV Challenger is the perfect vessel for an intimate function and appeals to those seeking an up to the minute decor.

• The MV Mandalay, Melbourne's premier function venue is the perfect lady for a stylish function.

Celebrate your special day in luxury, cruising the waters of the Yarra, Docklands, Port Phillip and Hobsons Bay areas with your family & friends. Both our vessels are available for receptions and ceremonies.
