Relax on the deck of a pristine boat, sip a flute of champagne under the canvas of a star darkened sky with only the sound of waves patting the hull. Sound like a dream? Swap that hotel suite for a nautical night aboard an original French Bennetti yacht.
Leaving from scenic Rushcutters Bay, where the boats that raced from Sydney to Hobart are moored silently, you are whisked off on a two-hour tour that heads to the myriad corners of the darkening harbour as the sun sets. Following your jaunt, the yacht moors in an idyllic spot where you spend the entire night. Before your skipper rows away to leave you in peace, a delicious seafood meal is served. Even the vessel's interior gives off a romantic vibe - dark mahogany wooden trimmings and a cosy cabin. This is more chic water caravan than palatial floating palace - P Diddy wannabes need not apply.
