Sundowner private charter – the perfect venue for every celebration

• Birthday • Hen’s Night • Buck’s Party • Corporate • Graduation • Anniversary • Engagement • Wedding •

Sundowner is the perfect venue for any celebration. Whether you’re organising a private birthday party, social club gathering, corporate function, conference event, charity night or kids birthday party Sundowner is an ideal venue.

Sundowner is a fully covered purpose built catamaran designed for parties, and unlike a yacht, we have a flat surface and no trip hazards. There is ample room to move and socialise, and high heels are welcome.

Organising an event on Sundowner is easy and best of all, we can set it up for you and clean up when you’re gone.

Sundowner can be decorated or themed for your cruise.

  • There are a variety of entertainment options from your own ipod to hiring a DJ or live musician
  • Bring your own food or get your event catered
  • Get creative and decorate Sundowner
  • Private charters can be booked for any time throughout the day, pending availability

Decorations & Styling

Private charters may organise decorations with some limitations. Decorations must be secure enough not to blow away, but must not damage the vessel. No crepe paper or confetti type decorations, due to the risk of staining the decks, and/or polluting our beautiful waterways. No balloons unless handled by one of our professional decorators.

There are many possibilities that will suit Sundowner, such as balloon garlands, artificial flower walls, real flowers, fabric drapes, fairy lights, and more.

We are happy to recommend the following Airlie Beach decorating companies:

  • Divine Weddings Whitsundays
  • Balloon Emporium
  • Shivoo Event Hire
  • Teepeevents & Styling
  • Karen Hill Floral Design
  • Or you can choose from other decorators in Airlie Beach. If they have not worked on Sundowner before, it is advisable that they come and see the boat before quoting you, to work out what is possible.
