What better way to see Sydney harbour with your guests than on your own ‘pocket’ super yacht whilst being looked after by your own crew.  The Count is ideal for formal or casual entertaining.  How you want to spend your time aboard is the exciting part!

You can choose to cruise or sail, or try something more adventurous by choosing of offshore sailing experience.  We can also anchor at one of the many beautiful harbour beaches to enjoy lunch, relax in the sun on our spacious teak decks and sun bed and perhaps a swim if you desire.

An evening cruise is a lovely choice if you wish to experience the sun setting over the city and the Sydney harbour bridge with the spectacular backdrop of the city coming alive at night.  A spectacular backdrop for that special celebration or marriage proposal.

If you’re looking for an elegant and intimate venue for a marriage proposal, wedding breakfast or exchanging wedding vows then we can arrange a bespoke experience for your special event to suit your needs.

The Count’s expansive teak deck provides the ideal area to accommodate all of your guest for intimate cocktails and canapés.


It’s often difficult to find that alternative corporate entertainment venue that will set you apart from your competition.  Sydney Harbour is a great playground and The Count a perfect venue for entertaining guests.

You may choose to do a short cruise and then find a protected bay within the harbour, or perhaps treat your guests to a true sailing experience taking in the northern reaches of the harbour of Watsons Bay and Manly.

Board and executive meetings with a difference
Consider holding your next board or executive meeting aboard The Count for a meeting with an edge.  The Count’s saloon can accommodate six to eight members of your executive team in a unique atmosphere.  You may choose a short cruise on Sydney Harbour before we anchor in a protected cove for the real work to begin.

Adventure offshore sailing
If you would like to share a little more adventure and you have a small group of clients, you can choose an offshore sailing experience.  Choosing this alternative allows you to experience what it feels like in classic yachting events such as the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. The Count accommodates nine guests comfortably for offshore sailing experiences.

Sailing regattas
There are various corporate regatta opportunities over the sailing season.  The Count provides an ideal platform for corporate entertainment.  Guests can choose to be involved with the crew or to sit back and watch The Count go through her paces.  This is a great way to work with your colleagues and clients away from your normal corporate environment.

Corporate Branding
We can also arrange your corporate branding aboard The Count for the event including battle flags, and if you would like to consider hull decals and your brand name on our sail then we can happily discuss these longer term options with you. ADVERTISING OPPORTUNIITES
