With one of the most spectacular coastlines on the planet, Gold Coast has no shortage of impressive backdrops for boat parties. But to throw a truly memorable boat party you need a truly memorable boat as your floating venue.
This is where Flotespace comes in.
As Australia’s leading boat hire specialists, Flotespace has the pick of private charter boats for group events for different budgets and group sizes.
Unlike a lot of traditional land venues, hiring a boat for a party offers you the flexibility to do your thing, your way. You can BYO food and drinks, have a barbecue on board or book five-star catering in advance – it’s your call.
