GALAXY I

Posted on

This 86ft (26m) Superyacht has a spacious open area saloon with comfortable lounges and features a Fly bridge on the upper deck for relaxing.

Galaxy I is designed around 3 spacious decks allowing guests to mingle as a group or to find their own space. The forward deck is ideal as a sunset venue complete with canapés and pre dinner drinks, while the saloon deck is a perfect example of why alfresco dining is the preferred dining option in this area of Australia.

Comfortably sleeping 6 passengers, the staterooms of Galaxy I continue the attention to detail seen throughout the entire vessel. The master stateroom boasts a king size bed, with marble ensuite. The stateroom also has it’s own TV and DVD player and stereo system. Two guest staterooms feature twin bedding and own ensuites, again with their own TV and DVD player.

All interior areas are air conditioned and the rear saloon deck can be enclosed for air conditioning as well. Flat screen TVs, DVD players with a full library, and a surround sound stereo system ensure that creature comforts are never far away. Sleek, sophisticated and superbly appointed, Galaxy I is designed for indulgence and will satisfy even the most discerning guest.

This is an all weather vessel. The charter would only be cancelled in the event of very extreme weather conditions, such as a cyclone.

SEA SICKNESS
It is fairly uncommon for passengers to suffer from seasickness on a harbour cruise. Should the water become choppy due to windy conditions, the skipper will cruise the more sheltered areas of the harbour. However, if a passenger does become unwell for any reason, we can arrange for them to disembark at the nearest wharf or by water taxi.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
Our chef can accommodate most dietary requirements. However in extreme cases we recommend passengers arrange their own catering.

CRUISING WITH CHILDREN
Children of any age are permitted on-board with parental supervision.

CRUISING WHILST PREGNANT
There are no restrictions with regards to a Sydney harbour cruise whilst pregnant. Just ensure you notify the chef of any dietary requirements.
