Charters & Functions
Our heritage vessels are available for charter for your special occasion!
What better way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, family gathering, local club outing etc, than cruising on Sydney Harbour aboard one of our 100+ year-old historic vessels.
Please note that as crews for our heritage vessels are all volunteers, all charters are subject to a crew being available.
James Craig offers many desirable features which will add a wow factor to any function. Whether it be your wedding, Christmas party, corporate & networking function or private dinner; this very unique ship will make your event stand out from the rest.
We can offer affordable functions dockside at lively Darling Harbour, or you can charter around Sydney’s beautiful harbour with up to 180 guests. For more information, please select the function type:
SMALL VESSEL FLEET
The cost to charter one of our heritage vessels includes the required crew, who are all volunteers. There are no galley facilities available on our smaller vessels, therefore you can either BYO food, beverage and all incidentals, or have the event catered by our specialist caterer, Earth Catering. They are very experienced in catering on our vessels and understand the heritage nature and associated restrictions onboard. Leanne Sherry can provide quotes for various food and beverage packages and can be contacted on email@example.com or (02) 9557 1422.
Once you have confirmed a date and time, we require a 50% deposit to be paid within 7 days to secure the charter, with the balance due 2 weeks prior to the event.
Embarking and disembarking of passengers for our heritage vessels is at our Heritage Docks & Workshop at Gate 4, James Craig Road, Rozelle. (Please click here for directions.)
For bookings and further information on the small vessel fleet please contact our Functions Coordinator on (02) 9298 3868 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
