Perfectly positioned at The Middle Harbour Skiff Club and sitting right on the beach, The Boathouse at The Spit, Mosman is the ultimate waterfront venue. The rustic Boathouse features gorgeous warm timber and imported stone with lavish gold-leaf painted ceilings. It offers you a touch of exoticism in relaxed splendour. A range of complementary decor in a variety of styles is also provided.

Wedding venue snapshot:

  • Located at the Middle Harbour 16ft Skiff Club.
  • On the beach with a waterfront view.
  • Rustic interior.
  • Complimentary in-house styling.
  • Capacity of up to 280 seated with a dancefloor, or up to 450 cocktail reception.
  • Operable walls allow for smaller room sizes for more intimate events.
  • Award-winning catering.
  • Exciting menus are sourcing the best local produce.
  • Nearby licensed venues with options for both an indoor or outdoor ceremony.

  • Zest Waterfront Venues have two locations. The first at Point Piper, and the other at The Spit, Mosman, both of which are hugely romantic.

    At The Boathouse at The Spit, Mosman, step inside and immediately embrace the venue’s charm, charismatic warm timber and imported stone with decorative gold-leaf painted ceilings. The marvellously warm and intimate interior can host up to 280 guests for a seated dinner and dance. The room benefits from operable walls, allowing for the space to be adjusted to best suit your guest count.

    Completely transform the space with small personal touches to a more spectacular arrangement. Zest’s Boathouse has the flexibility to rig anything from their existing rigging points within nooks in the ceiling - majestic chandeliers, to colourful drapes and hanging installations.

    The venue has an impressive collection of in-house decor, much of it is free of charge for couples to use, in a wide range of styles to create or complement your wedding theme. Whether your theme is rustic, vintage, modern, or a unique twist, The Boathouse provides a variety of complementary decor. Items include table runners, candles, lanterns, napkin rings, French goblets, feature lighting, and furniture. Although the venue offers in-house styling as part of all their packages, you are welcome to provide your own decor or stylist.

    The friendly events team are more than happy to assist and organise any outside requirements to streamline the planning process. Suppose you’re considering an elaborate set up (which the venue very much lends itself to). In that case, the good news is that they can be flexible to longer set up times as most of the space is not used for lunch service.

    For those who are looking for a local ceremony spot, Zest is situated directly across the road from the Spit West Reserve, a lovely zestful place for an outdoor ceremony with ample parking. Mosman Art Gallery is also straight up the hill for couples wanting their service in an indoor location.

    With a wealth of experience and exciting food concepts, Zest’s award-winning chefs can offer guests outstanding cuisine with a variety of dining options, whether it be a seated meal, sharing platters, or their roving degustation style menu. Suppose you would prefer to steer clear of the excellent A La Carte dining experience. In that case, The Spit will cater to your needs and suggest an alternative layout arrangement to create a more informal setting.

    My husband and I had our wedding at Zest and we could not have asked for a better venue. Not only was the location great but the staff, service and food was exceptional. All our guests were impressed. I highly recommend Zest!!

    Anushika! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Dorian. Wishing you the most amazing marriage :)

    Absolutely amazing venue for our wedding. Maree was great leading up to the wedding. Sean was lovely - making sure we were well fed and everything was running smoothly on the night. Food was amazing, venue looked spectacular with our minimal adornments. Food stations superb. Wish friends would have their wedding here so we can enjoy more of the food. Loved it.

    I could not have wished for anything better. All our guests raved about the food and said that it was the best food that they have had at a wedding. Very attentive staff that tailored made everything to our wishes. I would give them 10 stars if I could.

    Yay Lucy! I am so glad you had an amazing time! It was an absolute delight to work with you both! Happy One Year Anniversary for a week (and a bit) ago! :)

    I am still blown away by how smoothly our wedding went. A big part of this was thanks to our venue, Maree, and the Martins. The venue is stunning firstly and creates such a warm environment. Maree made the process seem easy and gave us plenty of notice without push to gather ideas/information etc. Communication was great from the get go, especially in the final weeks and days. Looking back I was mostly stressed about how it would all pull together on the actual day at the reception. I honestly had nothing to worry about. Everything was set up to perfection, and the coordinations from both Martins kept us calm and prepared throughout the night. I genuinely felt like they wanted us and our friends/family to have the best time. All the staff were attentive and amazing. Since the wedding I have had many guests tell us it was the best wedding and best FOOD hands down they have been too/had. Also a great decision for us was to get the dumpling station - I still have family rave about it when I see them. Its something fun and unique!. If I have one suggestion for the venue it would be to remove the extra cost per hour if your vendors require more than 2 hours before the reception to set up. Myself and some of the vendors found this unusual but it certainly didn't deter me and all of this information is in the contract. Overall it was the best day/night we have ever had, thank you Zest and team!

    Oh Emily, it was such a pleasure to work with you both! Your relaxed attitude to planning made it an absolute joy to create an amazing wedding day for yourself and John. With regards to bump in, we unfortunately do need to charge that additional bump in as it means we can't take a lunch booking :( Wishing you both an amazing marriage!! Maree x

    Wow, where do we start? Thank you to Maree, Karen, Martin & Martin for executing so well the best day for us. There was no detail missed. Everyone was in awe with the set up of the venue, and the food, of course - was amazing! Thank you for your professionalism and help with the journey. We enjoyed every moment planning because your team made it so easy. Thank you!
