Who We Are

Karisma Cruises is a company driven by passionate people dedicated to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction.

Founded in 2011, Karisma Cruises began with the construction and launch of our first vessel in Thailand, which was soon brought to the waters of Sydney. Initially designed as a houseboat for private use on the Hawkesbury River, the vessel had a brief stop-over in Cockle Bay, Sydney Harbour.

It quickly became evident that Karisma was destined to shine on Sydney Harbour. Its modern design and stylish exterior garnered immediate and sustained public interest. Following numerous inquiries for private charters and much deliberation, Karisma transitioned to commercial use, securing a charter survey to operate on Sydney Harbour.

Since then, we had grown into a recognised charter operator, known for our exceptional service and well-appointed vessel.

Fast forward to December 2022, when we proudly introduced Karisma II, a larger, modern version of the newly appointed, Karisma I. Custom designed and built by the owners, this vessel was shipped to Sydney Harbour, embodying everything we learned from our years withKarisma I. We listened to our customers, understanding their desires and areas for improvement, and enhanced our already successful product. We kicked off 2023 with great enthusiasm, and both our existing and new customers were thrilled to see Karisma II gracing the harbour for larger groups.

Fast forward once more to November 2023, and we unveiled Liberty, our third and smallest vessel, perfect for families and small groups of friends or colleagues. With three vessels now operating in 2023, catering to groups ranging from 5 to 150 guests, we have the privilege of organizing and executing everything from relaxed charters to the most important celebrations in people’s lives, such as family outings, milestone birthdays, company Christmas parties, and weddings.

At our core, we remain passionate about what we do. Through our experience, we’ve come to believe there’s no place like Sydney Harbour to host truly remarkable events for any occasion.

This belief drives us to consistently deliver impeccable service from start to finish, supported by our fantastic team and trusted suppliers, like Fine Spun Catering, who have helped us serve incredible food to our customers for over a decade. We take pride in ensuring that every guest receives our full dedication, from the initial planning stages to the event itself and beyond.
