New Years Eve on Sydney Harbour

Sydney’s New Years Eve midnight fireworks are watched by over 1 million people along the harbour and more than 1 billion people worldwide, yet the most spectacular way to experience the fireworks display and light shows is aboard Southwinds, our magnificent 61ft’ yacht designed by Robert Clark and constructed in 1950.

Avoid the crowds, as well as the hustle and bustle along the Sydney harbour front, spending NYE aboard Southwinds right underneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge is the most elegant way to welcome and celebrate the coming of the New Year. Our crew will ensure your vantage point of one of the world’s most watched NYE fireworks shows is unbeatable, with the city’s glorious and much-celebrated fireworks exhibition just metres away you will be taking part in a truly once in a lifetime experience.

Sail in style

This is no ordinary yacht!  Our beautiful yacht, Southwinds, has an impressive English design pedigree and past.  Designed by Robert Clark in 1948, her original plans are now in the Museum in Greenwich and her specifications registered with Lloyds.

Constructed with beautiful Huon Pine and launched in 1950, she would have been one of the fastest and largest yachts in Sydney Harbour at that time.  She has competed in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race and had many notable owners.

Southwinds is exclusively available from Manly Sailing, find out more about this prestigious yacht.
