Karisma – Currently the newest edition to Sydney Harbour!
Where it all began…


Karisma (previously known as Leisure Line) was built and launched in Thailand in 2011 and soon-after brought to Sydney waters, originally designed for the Hawkesbury River as a houseboat to be hired out for private use. Karisma was shipped from Thailand to Port Kembla – Wollongong and on its journey to the Hawkesbury, had a week stop-over in Cockle Bay Sydney Harbour. Needless to say, she received immediate and ongoing attention from the public eye with people wanting to hire for commercial charters. With this in mind and after much deliberation, Karisma was converted from outboard motors to inboard motors and a charter survey was acquired to operate on Sydney Harbour.

As a result, Karisma Cruises was established in November 2012 to provide the experience that so many were enquiring about. Since then, Karisma has been out on Sydney Harbour waters for all types of occasions ensuring some of the most iconic sites in the world are viewed and enjoyed in absolute diverse style. Just a few highlights in Karisma’s short life so far were having special guests on board such as Jessica Mauboy, Ricky Martin, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia Derossi, Russell Crow and Sydney Swans AFL Team. Everyone is blown away by the charm of this vessel. One thing is definite, this is just the beginning!
