Our fleet includes two magnificent 1850’style tall ships and one 1920’s ferry. All ships are in amazing shape and are some of Sydney’s most iconic and stand out venues for all types of corporate events, including:

  • Christmas parties and celebrations and much more…
  • Client entertainment and relationship building

Choose a Tall Ship for a stylish event, get involved and help hoist the sails or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the tall ship atmosphere and entertainment. Your host and sailing crew interact with guests to ensure your group receives a personalised service that you won’t find anywhere else. Watch in awe as the crew climb the rigging and masts to set the top sails!"

Testimonials

Microsoft
“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with Sydney Harbour Tall Ships. Nothing was too small or too big for your staff and they managed all our tedious requests with a smile and real professionalism. I am glad to have come across your organization. Microsoft is grateful to have chosen Tall Ships in catering for our event. Thank you.“

FUJIFILM
"We would like to pass on thanks and compliments for such an amazing event. All of our senior management team, CEO and MD absolutely loved the journey and it made for a very special start for our Christmas celebrations. The crew were cheerful and friendly, the ship was marvellous and we certainly were lucky with the weather! Amy and I commented that one of the reasons we wanted to hire the ship was because from the start we had helpful, professional service and nothing was a problem.
You were so accommodating to drop us to another dock and you truly went out of your way to ensure the success of the event. It was extremely refreshing to receive such excellent customer service and we would be very happy to not only use the service again should the opportunity arise, but to thoroughly recommend this experience to anyone in our corporate circle."
