Superyachts and Sydney Harbour go hand in hand. Sailing underneath the Harbour Bridge, past Sydney Opera House and out to the Eastern Suburbs or Manly is a surefire way to get a taste of one of the world’s most spectacular harbourside cities. So when a spectacular 40m Italian-built alloy yacht turns up, it can make a splash.
The Infinity Pacific is owned by The Pacific Hotel Group, hoteliers who are no strangers to luxury. With the Sofitel Noosa Pacific, Novotel Sydney, Manly Pacific and the Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific as part of their portfolio, they know how to look after their guests. The yacht itself is a showstopper. With three levels, five bedrooms, floor to ceiling sunroom, formal and informal dining room, upper deck, soaker tub and bar, it’s not your average vessel. The master suite stretches across the full width of the yacht, a rarity that makes cruising a dream. There’s also the ensuite and walk in shower, the combined space larger than plenty of hotel rooms. With a chic interior design scheme, it’s also a lot more stylish than other boats on the harbour.
Beyond the bed for the night, guests are well looked after by the eight person crew – the chef whipping up a menu designed by Aussie celebrity chef Peter Kuruvita, who is well known for serious seafood and his Sri Lankan influence on local menus. Expect Seared Yellow Fin Tuna with Ruby Grapefruit to be paired with top notch internal wines and plenty of French champagne. Sit down for a full meal in the formal dining room or head up to the top level to sprawl out on the deck on cushions, with canapés and cold drinks straight from the bar.
The Infinity Pacific will be available for Charter until March 2019, docked at The Foreshore, at Sydney’s Superyacht Marina in Rozelle. Take it out on the harbour, or go further afield around Australia.
