Gold Coast Charter Boat BACCHUS is a luxury 62 foot thoroughbred amongst other charter boats. It is available for private cruise on the Gold Coast Broadwater – one of the world’s most magnificent waterways. Bacchus can accommodate 47 day passengers. “Bacchus” – named after the Roman God of Wine – has been operating a wide range of private Boat Charters on the Gold Coast for over a decade.
She is designed, equipped and professionally operated to the highest standard.

If your cruise is at least 6 hours long, the special trampoline can be deployed at extra cost ($50 per hour). The swimming mat and inflatables are free for use.
Boat Memorial / Ash-Scattering Service
Memorialise and remember a passed loved one, family member or friend through a boat memorial on Bacchus. Our new ‘Sky Lounge’ on the bow now allows elderly attendees to sit in comfort and safety as they participate in your ceremonies. Our one-hour cruise price of $750 is only available for Memorials or Ash. For a price comparable to land-based venues, you can get so much more than an event hall. Leave your dearly departed in a place they loved – on the Gold Coast Broadwater. If you choose a slightly longer memorial cruise, you may also hold a wake on board.
