Why Choose Us?
Whether you’re planning your first event or you organise a different one every month, you come to realize that the venue is just one thing to decide on.
We’ve Got Karisma!
There are so many other important factors that need to be suited to your occasion and executed perfectly to ensure that it is uniquely memorable to you and your guests.
And with so many boats and waterfront venues on the harbour to choose from, it’s wise to ask, why should I choose Karisma over the other?
Who We Are
A company made of passionate people committed to quality, innovation and customer satisfaction.
Karisma Cruises started in 2011 when our first vessel was built and launched in Thailand and soon-after brought to Sydney waters. Originally designed for the Hawkesbury River as a houseboat to be hired out for private use, the vessel had a week stop-over in Cockle Bay, Sydney Harbour.
It soon became clear that Karisma was better fit to shine on the waters of Sydney Harbour. Its modern fit out and stylish exteriors received immediate and ongoing attention from the public eye. After many enquiries from people wanting to book the vessel for private charters and much deliberation, Karisma was converted to commercial use and a charter survey was acquired to operate on Sydney Harbour.
We grew to become a recognised charter operator, with a reputation for its unmatched service and well-appointed vessel.
Still, before anything else, we’re passionate about what we do. Through our experience, we came to believe there’s no place like Sydney Harbour to create a truly remarkable event for you and your guests on any occasion.
That knowledge is what drives us to continue to deliver impeccable service from start to finish, supported by our fantastic team and our trusted suppliers, like Fine Spun Catering who have helped us serve our customers with incredible food for over 3 years. We thrive knowing that every single guest we host has our utmost dedication from the initial planning up to the event and later feedback.
And there’s no greater satisfaction than reading their testimonies and knowing that we are making a mark on a fun and thriving industry.
