Yarra River Cruises offers spectacular private boat charters in Melbourne — perfect for pre-wedding celebrations! They boast two striking boats, including the spacious Melba Star, complete with an outdoor deck and quality sound system, and the charming Bianca — perfect for the warmer months. With irresistible food and beverage options and your own personalised playlists, a magical time awaits!

Want to plan an unforgettable hens, bucks, or pre-wedding party? If so, you can't look past Yarra River Cruises' charming private boat charters! Soak up the magical atmosphere, enjoy the fresh air, and marvel at Melbourne's iconic sites. The Melba Star boat is ideal for larger groups, complete with a spacious cabin and dancing area, an adjoining outdoor decking, and your very own beer garden! Located in the middle of Melbourne City, on the Federation Square riverfront, you'll have no issue finding discounted evening and weekend parking. You and your friends can spread out and enjoy premium house cocktails and local beverages atop the Yarra River. You will have complete control over the music and are welcome to organise a form of entertainment to keep the merriment going — whether a DJ or a cheeky exotic dance performance. 

For smaller groups, you may opt for Bianca — a predominantly outdoor boat with a covered roof but open at the sides. Perfect for the warmer months. Enjoy a platter from a local restaurant, or bring your own nibbles — located in Victoria Harbour, Docklands. For a unique, unforgettable pre-wedding celebration, the professional Yarra River Cruises team have you covered!

  • You can also have lots of fun on their bottomless cocktail cruises open to the public every Saturday. You will get a reserved table and are free to move around the cabin and beer garden deck — priced at only $70 per person! A great option for smaller groups.
