Sailing Into Luxury: Sea Raes Unveils Second Sydney Season

Cool Sh*t, Sydney / 22 November 2023

Because ordinary yachts are so last season.

As the vibrant sails of Sydney Harbour unfurl with anticipation, the grand return of M.Y. Sea Raes marks the commencement of another opulent maritime season. A floating ode to coastal elegance, Sea Raes embarks on its second Sydney sojourn, inviting locals to revel in the lap of nautical luxury. With design echoes from the iconic Raes on Wategos and a history that includes hosting luminaries like Margot Robbie, this luxury yacht sets to redefine the very essence of luxury living on the water.

A floating masterpiece, Sea Raes was acquired for a princely sum of $10 million, followed by an extravagant $6.5 million facelift, transforming it into a haven of opulence. Ready to cater to the discerning tastes of up to eight overnight guests and up to 30 for day charters, this fully crewed super yacht isn’t just a vessel; it’s a floating boutique hotel. Imagine savouring culinary delights curated by Rae’s chef Jason Saxby while being caressed by the sea breeze against the backdrop of Sydney’s iconic skyline.

Beyond the glitz and glamour, Sea Raes has become synonymous with star-studded events. Hollywood sensation Margot Robbie, for instance, chose the venue to host an exclusive event for her gin brand, Papa Salt. The yacht has also played host to French winemakers, Rameau d’Or, solidifying its status as the go-to venue for upscale soirées.

Guiding the culinary journey on board is Executive Chef Jason Saxby, the gastronomic genius behind Raes on Wategos. The menus, crafted with locally sourced, sustainable produce, offer a delectable odyssey that mirrors the exquisite dining experience of Raes on Wategos. From salt-baked snapper with seaweed and lemon myrtle crust to the decadent sgroppino with seasonal sorbet, each dish is a masterpiece in its own right.

Initially setting sail in the Whitsundays, Sea Raes found a new home in Sydney due to overwhelming demand. According to Marty McCaig, General Manager of Raes, there’s truly nothing like the experience. The super yacht promises an unmatched fusion of relaxation, celebration, and adventure, providing the same level of hospitality found at Raes on Wategos.

As Sea Raes charts its course for a second Sydney season, it invites discerning guests to indulge in an unparalleled luxury experience. Whether it’s a day charter with friends, a romantic overnight escape, or a private event, Sea Raes guarantees a level of opulence that transcends the ordinary.
