Bella Vista - $650
Free champagne, complimentary canapés and nibbles and magnificent view from the wrap-around deck.
The Bella Vista, of course, gives passengers stunning views of the harbour, the foreshore and the Sydney skyline but, moreover, it combines style, comfort and technology to provide an unforgettable floating venue for a magnificent party.
This majestic and stylish vessel's name, rather aptly, comes from the 3 metre high glass walls, the spacious wrap-around deck and the open-top roof deck. Combine these 360-views with an open bar on each level, some sumptuous food and cocktails and the greatest New Year's Eve show on earth and we're in for an unforgettable evening.
