A family trip New Year’s Eve was spectacular watching the Fireworks on the YARRA near Federation square. The best spot to watch the fireworks and the boat4hire team were great.

We hired the boat at nigh to watch the Fireworks. Truly spectacular being in the Yarra at New Years Eve .A unforgettable experience. The team at Boat4hire were great. Having a marine license they don't restrict where you can go.

I booked an 8 passenger boat (back on 20th October) for a 'day to remember' with my 2 daughters and their partners who were visiting from England for Christmas. Less than 24 hours before I was due to collect the boat I received a text message saying the boat was 'currently out of action'. I called them and was told there was an electrical issue and that their engineer was on holiday. When I asked what the fault was he started waffling as it was clearly a big lie. I was offered a smaller boat, which would have meant one of my family missing out on the adventure. Therefore I had to cancel and my daughters were really upset. To add insult to injury I have only been offered a part refund with my Mastercard charges being deducted from the refund. I would look elsewhere before using this company as other reviews show this is not a one off. You can contact me on SM if you want confirmation this is a genuine review. Ray Cunliffe
