East Coast Sailing Boat Charter
Amazing day trip around the harbour


Amazing day trip around the harbour! The guys were cool and careful. They cooked for us and took care of everything! Boat was quite big and we had a lot of flexibility with where to go. Thank you very much for a great day!

We seriously loved every minute of it

Whitney Sellnow

Hi Kylie, Our crew had an AMAZING time!!!! We seriously loved every minute of it! Well, I did at least!

The lounge area below deck was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable (a few people on board commented on this as well). Also, the staff was very helpful and flexible which we all really appreciated. From start to finish your service has been top notch! Would definitely recommend your boat to people in the future.

…Perfect from start to finish

Bruce & Kerry, AUCKLAND NZ

We would like you to know how much we enjoyed our Vivid Dinner Cruise on Sunday night.

It was perfect from start to finish and the special treatment the wheelchair people received was a real credit to your organisation.

Thank you so much

East Coast Sailing Hens Boat Hire
The skipper and stewardess went above and beyond

Angela Shmith

What a fantastic evening! I recently organised a cruise for my friend’s hens. Everything from the booking and lead up, to the cruise itself was seamless. Prior to the day, the events team was quick to respond to any query and very helpful with all the booking details. On the day of the cruise, the boat was absolutely perfect (we hired the Seawind 1160 Catamaran). The skipper and stewardess went above and beyond what we expected, helping with serving and cooking food and ensuring we all had a wonderful time on the Harbour. Thank you Eastcoast Sailing, we will definitely be back!
