From tinnies and fishing vessels to jaw-dropping superyachts, the 51st annual Sydney International Boat Show (SIBS) has wrapped up after another successful year.
Showcasing more than 1,000 boats and 250 exhibitors from around the world, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest recreational marine exhibition transformed ICC Sydney and Cockle Bay Darling Harbour into a mariner’s paradise this August.
Among the prestige watercraft on display was a new superyacht on the Australian charter market, Oneworld.
Launched in February 2018 and now available for charter through Australian Superyachts, the 31.5-metre luxury vessel features modern interiors and expansive deck spaces that can host up to 100 guests for day charters.
On the second evening of the boat show, Australian Superyachts, in partnership with Swiss watchmaker Chopard, invited an exclusive guest list to board Oneworld in a showcase of the vessel’s contemporary styling and multi-level entertainment decks.
VIPs were treated to a flute of sparkling Dom Pérignon on arrival, courtesy of LVMH, and a decadent grazing table by Simon Johnson, while Hennessy Cognac and Möet Champagne flowed freely throughout the night.
Chopard had also put together a stunning display featuring a collection of watches and dazzling diamond earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces, surrounded by bursting bouquets of baby pink peonies, white roses and lilac freesias.
On board Oneworld
Set to redefine luxury yachting in Australia, Oneworld is the perfect on-water venue for exclusive functions – from corporate retreats and product launches, to weddings and birthdays, to private holidays.
Oneworld can accommodate up to 12 guests overnight in five luxuriously appointed guest suites, each with their own ensuite bathroom and state-of-the-art entertainment system.
With a personal onboard chef and European-trained crew, Oneworld comes fully equipped with a range of toys and tenders including a FunAir water slide, stand-up paddle boards and kayaks, a five-person Aquavia Jacuzzi, and diving and snorkelling equipment.
The yacht has a comfortable cruising speed of 15 knots, and will be available for hourly, daily and overnight charters around Sydney from November until July; and the Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef between August and October with a flexible cruising schedule depending on the season. Charter rates start at A$25,000 per day and A$110,000 per week.
