Sydney 2000

Many vessels ply Sydney Harbour, but there is only one MV Sydney 2000. It is the most prestigious cruising restaurant on our waterways. Built in Western Australia with an interior created by world-renowned yacht designer Jon Bannenberg, MV Sydney 2000 is an interpretation of the dynamic sophistication that is Sydney. 

MV Sydney 2000 can be chartered exclusively for your event, or you can choose from three exclusive dining decks and five private dining rooms. Each deck operates as a separate restaurant, complete with independent Cruise Director, galley, cocktail bar, dance floor, entertainment facilities and first class service. Panoramic viewing windows on every deck present the harbour like a picture postcard, whilst each deck has a covered outdoor area, plus the 360- degree open Star Deck. The Sky and Club Decks have raised centre plinths and feature baby grand pianos.


  • 3 Independent decks with galley, stage, dance floor & bar
