James Craig and Lady Hopetoun

Sydney Heritage Fleet is a community based, volunteer driven, not-for-profit organisation which provides men and women with the opportunity of continuing to be productive and valuable members of the community. It allows them to connect with friends and workmates on a regular basis and importantly to also maintain an active body and mind. It has done this since 1965!

Members of Sydney Heritage Fleet come from all walks of life and the bond that unites them is that they are volunteering men and women dedicated to the preservation of Australia’s maritime heritage. They have a commitment to achieve their goals of restoring and operating heritage ships.  In this process, many old trade skills are resurrected and passed onto younger members.

Hold your corporate functions on one of Sydney Heritage Fleet’s beautiful heritage ships!

The Fleet has function space from intimate Captain’s Table dinners or lunches for 6 or 8 people to ship wide cocktail parties for 220 people. It owns and operates prestigious heritage ships with historic links to Sydney. They can be positioned in prime locations – Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, cruising Sydney Harbour etc. according to your needs.
