There’s nothing quite like taking in the stunning sights of Sydney Harbour, unless of course, you get to do it cocktail in hand, aboard a world-class superyacht. The Jackson is the all-new superyacht experience set to hit Circular Quay, bringing a harbour dining and bar offering that is unequivocally luxe. Want to step aboard? Here’s everything you need to know.
Update 09/05/2022: The Jackson has officially arrived in Sydney with bookings available now via the link below. With a capacity of up to 400 guests cocktail style, 300 guests banquet style, and plenty of capacity for private events and functions The Jackson is THE luxury yacht to hire for a spot of the high life.
Specially designed for Sydney, the $15 million vessel stands tall amongst the sea of towering ships. Copping a versatile events deck alongside a sophisticated restaurant, The Jackson offers a rare opportunity to indulge in the high life, but the jewel in its crown sits atop. A stunning cocktail bar sits pride of place on the top deck, offering guests the very best viewing position of Sydney’s spectacular Harbour. According to Nick Lester, general manager of the new brand, the vessel was named after the iconic waters of Sydney Harbour (AKA Port Jackson).
“Everyone knows that Sydney looks its very best from the water so we were inspired to bring a harbour dining and bar experience like no other for all Sydneysiders and visitors alike to enjoy,” he said. “Not everyone can afford to charter a superyacht, so we have created an accessible luxurious experience that currently doesn’t exist.”
In terms of food, The Jackson has gone all out, bringing seafood chef Tom Kime along for the ride. The curated menu is set to celebrate the best of local produce, sourced fresh and crafted to suit the uniquely high-class environment. According to Lester, The Jackson is also aiming to revive Sydney’s nightlife.
Exclusive use of the whole vessel has the capacity of up to 400 guests cocktail style or 300 guests banquet style. Whilst the events deck offers unspoilt floor-to-ceiling views of the harbour, there are also intimate private rooms with access to the balcony, state of the art audio equipment and enough room for a seriously balling wedding. Best of all, you can even score pickup courtesy of The Jackson’s dedicated tender.
As the gloomy sky turns to clear blue this summer, The Jackson will become a consumer bar and restaurant and we’re particularly looking forward to the Spring 2022 events calendar where the yacht will showcase a number of Special Events onboard the vessel.
“The Jackson has its own dedicated luxury tender, the Jackson Flyer, which will provide a deluxe alternative to water taxis for guests to board at scheduled pick-ups from Manly and Rose Bay or disembark at a time that suits them,” Lester said. “We can’t wait to welcome Sydney-siders back to the harbour on The Jackson this summer as it promises to be the best spot to catch up with friends and loved ones, and celebrate reconnecting after the tough year everyone has had.”
The Jackson has officially arrived in Sydney as of the 5th of May 2022, with bookings available for the first departures now via the link below.
