Bruce Steenson

“Thanks for a great trip.(on Katrina) It certainly made our weekend. Your service was fantastic and fun, and could not have been more amiable. None of us in the group will have the slightest hesitation recommending you to friends and others looking for some enjoyment in the harbour in the future. In fact, we’ve already made a recommendation. I hope I have the opportunity to do it again myself at some point in the future.”

“Just a note to thank you for organising the Jerry Bailey cruise for us last Friday 15 February.  We all enjoyed the cruise very much.  The staff were
very friendly and their customer service was excellent.  The food was great and the boat was perfect for the occasion. Please extend our gratitude to all who were involved in making the event such a success.”
Thanks again!

Just a short note to thank you for all the organising. The cruise was a great success. A very reflective evening from my Brothers mates rather than a huge
send off in itself (so most of them were pretty well behaved).

Meg and David

were fantastic and should be commended for the way they run their boat. Food, friendliness and service etc were all excellent. David even ran one of the guests who had to leave early all the way across the harbour to Rushcutters Bay in their rubber ducky!

“Stor tack” – that’s Swedish for a ‘big thank

you’ to Sail Australia and the crew of “Sydney”.  Our champagne reception on board “Sydney” was the absolute highlight of our wedding day.  There is nothing in the world that can beat the beauty of a crisp winters sunset out on Sydney Harbour!

The boat was amazing and I will be forever thankful that you took the time out to organise one that could handle the impending stormy weather – have a look at the photos,there wasn’t a cloud in sight!

Please thank the staff whom were friendly, attentive and professional.  They really took superb care of all our guests and there was never a champagne glass empty!

We truly want to thank Sail Australia for helping to make our Wedding Day such a special occasion.

We found you so lovely, helpful & professional from the moment we first contacted you and we are thankful for the memorable moments we shared with our Bridal Party on the “Ultimate 1” on the day.

The relaxing moments and fun times with the bridal party during our trip from Watsons Bay to the reception at L’Aqua Darling Harbour is something we will treasure for a lifetime, we really would like to extend our thanks to our driver also who was incredibly friendly, professional &kept our pageboy Jordan entertained for the entire trip!

We won’t hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends who are also at this wonderful stage in their lives and who may require your friendly service, fantastic boats and affordable pricing.

Once again, thank you for making our special day an unforgettable one…

Reliance5sm

“Thank you very much again for your and Reliance’s input to the wedding.  Given the challenging weather conditions your control was excellent no falls, no soakings, no seasickness and timetabled perfectly. Reliance sparkled and shone brilliantly. Your genial help, dressing the vessel, ice, glasses and the trimmings made ‘Reliance’, bride and groom apart, the focal point of the day. Very many of our guests were admiring of ‘Reliance’ and hopefully you will be contacted for further business in the future.”

“Just a quick note of thanks for organising the Sydney Harbour cruise on Summer Wind. We all had a fantastic time, particularly as Huey upstairs turned on brilliant weather for us.  Peter and his young son Brett were superb hosts and Peter’s preparedness to help us enjoy the day was way beyond my expectations.  Lunching and swimming at Quarantine Bay with 12 family and friends was one particular highlight of the cruise that my wife will cherish forever. I will unreservedly recommend your company, and Summerwind, to anyone in Melbourne wishing to sail in Sydney or elsewhere.”
Charade1sm

“The evening was a huge success and I had a fantastic time.  Please also pass on my thanks to the staff aboard the boat (MV Charade) that evening.  The skipper, crew, caterer and service staff were all so friendly and professional and helped to ensure the evening ran smoothly and was good for all.  The food was delicious and my guests seemed to enjoy themselves as much as I did.”

“I wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that the cruise on the Penguin was fantastic, Matt and the boys did a great job and we had a wonderful time.  Many thanks again”

Andrew Roser

“Just wanted to let you know what we had a great sail in the Whitsunday Islands.  The guys there did a very professional job throughout all stages of the process.  I can certainly recommend them to others!  Thanks for finding the boat for us.”

“Just a note to thank you for your help in the organisation of our 21st.  “The “Mulgi“, and the crew were terrific and by all accounts everyone enjoyed themselves.”

Anne Stanton

“Thanks for your help in arranging our day – it was a big hit with our clients and was well worth the upgrade..  Would have to agree – it was well worth the extra cost – what’s that they say – only have one chance to make a first impression!” (chartered Charade)

Grant Bailey /Managing Director /United Network Pty Ltd

“Just a quick line to thankyou for your help with organizing “Dreamweaver” on the Saturday. Everything went without a hitch, everyone really enjoyed the day and the crew were lovely. I was particularly pleased as I love sailing and the sea so I will definitely think of “Sail Australia” for my next boat excursion.”

Sonya Quach

“I would like to thank you for helping me organise a successful and most enjoyable Christmas party.  It is always hard trying to please everyone, but on behalf of those who attended I think I can rightly say that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Cruising around Sydney Harbour is always wonderful, but the delicious food and excellent service provided by the crew on the Derwent Hunter made this Christmas Party one to remember.”

Samantha Kelly/ Strategic Innovation Group

“A quick note to thank you for recommending the “Derwent Hunter” for our management outing this year.  Warren and his crew were excellent!  Running a hotel we know what guest service is about and these guys have it.  Nothing was too much trouble and the whole day ran without any hitches.  The boat itself let us run with thoughts of yester year and the romantics could envisage cruising the south seas.  All of us had a great time and will highly recommend this boat and it’s crew.  Once again, thanks to you for the suggestion – a million times better than the more modern boats we saw around.”

Nicolas Bottiglieri/General Manager
Parkroyal Parramatta

“We had a great time! Thanks for your professional assistance and recommendation of a boat that suited our requirements.  The staff and crew (of River Princess) were also very professional and inviting.  It was a great evening.”

Maurice Castagnet

“Just a quick note to say thank you very much for organising our Social Sail on Sydney Harbour. We had a very enjoyable afternoon and a special thanks to Mikkel Brinch our skipper.
Thanks again”
