Sydney is the world’s best place to celebrate New Year’s Eve on board a luxury yacht

25 Nov 2015 – By Laurie Foulon


Boat International magazine has published an article with the  Top 5 destinations to celebrate New Year’s Eve on a luxury yacht and Sydney Harbour is number one in the list. 

The sight of Sydney’s firework display is one of the most mesmerising ways to usher in the new year. Your experience of the magnificent pyrotechnic spectacle as a guest onboard a luxury superyacht elevates the world’s top destination to a whole new level of enjoyment. 

Superyacht anchoring during Sydney Fireworks

Joachim Howard, Managing director of the luxury yacht charter division at Ocean Alliance, shared with Boat International advice on where to anchor your superyacht on New Year’s Eve.

As a Charter guest onboard a superyacht on Sydney Harbour for NYE you are afforded the luxury of a designated area for anchoring. This allows large yachts to anchor in position safely with vessels of similar sizes.
The superyacht exclusion zone is situated directly South of Bradleys Head and in my opinion is one of the best positions in the harbour to view the fireworks. Between the anchorage and the Harbour Bridge there is a stretch of fireworks barges that give our guests the most dramatic viewpoint to bring in the new year.

If you are still unsure where are you going to celebrate New Year’s Eve, have a look at our collection of Sydney superyachts and let’s us inspire you. We help you find your yacht and design your experience to make sure you have the best celebration of the New Year floating serenely in the Harbour waters.
