Generous Bow area

With one of the largest Bow spaces of any vessel on the Brisbane River, MV Baroness has room to spare for sitting and enjoying a beverage or standing and mingling for super selfies under the big city lights. There is room for a whole group photo on the Bow as a memento of the occasion.


 Our Upper Back Deck has a huge BBQ and seating for 8-16 on plush outdoor furniture and more chairs/benches.  Should bad weather roll in, as summer storms sometimes do, the Back Deck can be closed off and there are other waterproof areas to enjoy and avoid the elements of wind and rain.

MV Baroness has a fully stocked bar with multiple bartenders to cater to your every whim.  We offer some basic catering options like warm party canapes and cheese platters plus a gourmet bbq.  We also have links on this site to several local caterers.  You must let your private caterer know that you will be onboard a motor vessel. See our catering pages for more details.

Onboard Safety

Our experienced Skipper and Deckhands are regularly trained in up to date fire and boat safety measures.  Stay out of the water whilst the Baroness is moving as any unauthorised ‘man overboard’ incident will force a return to shore and must be lodged with the Australian Maritime Safety Association.


There is no swimming allowed in the Brisbane River but we can take a long day-trip to Moreton Bay and deploy our water trampline. Up to 90 people can come with.  Ask for details.

If you are planning an event on the waters of the Brisbane River,

here are some tips to make your occasion more enjoyable. 

  •  Time of Year – Firstly, know which time of the year you want to book a luxury boat charter on the Brisbane River. Weather plays a big part in the type of experience you are seeking. For instance, during peak summer, it’s often hot and humid, and rain can be frequent and heavy. During the winter, it is drier; however, the evenings can be cold. Fortunately, you don’t have to let the rain bother you too much. Our yacht has many indoor spaces for you to enjoy and the Sun Room and spacious Saloon are completely weather-proof.
  • Food and Drinks – With our commercial-size kitchen,  you can hire a caterer and enjoy professionally-prepared dishes. Or, you can throw some snags on the BBQ and chat as you share a casual lunch together.  We have all the platters, plates and cutlery you could possibly require so there is no need to bring any plastic plates or utensils onboard during your luxury boat hire. 
  • Time of Day – Do you enjoy the sunset and the stars or want a warm day for swimming and sun-bathing on the bow of the MV Baroness? You may choose to enjoy the sunset with bubbly and light snacks to watch the lights of  Brisbane City and sneak a peek inside the waterfront mansions as you cruise the river under the stars.  The MV Baroness is well-lit for socialising under the stars with twinkling bistro lights on the Bow and Back Deck.   
  •  Swimming – Only on a day trip to Moreton Bay can swimming be permitted. The size of the MV Baroness makes it difficult to anchor too close to land so swimmers must be proficient.   The MV Baroness has a swim mat onboard and range of floatation toys for guests to enjoy.  There is also a HUGE water Trampoline available.  Ask our booking agent Janine about it.

How can Baroness Classic Charters help you?

There are many ways for you to use our well-appointed luxury yacht: 

Corporate Events: Plan your next corporate event on a chartered boat. Having your corporate event on a luxury yacht will not only impress your guests, but it will offer your staff a VIP experience in which you can show them how much they mean to the functioning of your company.

Parties and Special Occasions: You can also use a yacht for special occasions such as an engagement party, a wedding anniversary, a wedding, or even a hens or bucks party. Not only will the setting and the views impress your guests − but having this as your background for your photos will be pure magic. 

Family Fun Days: Another option is to charter a yacht simply to unwind. Once onboard, you can enjoy a sunset and a few drinks with friends and family.

Memorials: Did your dear departed love the water and the river?  It may be fitting to celebrate their life with an ash scattering or memorial on the Brisbane River waterways  We allow one-hour cruises for these event and they are priced at $1,000 per hour for up to 100 guests.
