Fabulous Experience

It was a brilliant day - a fabulous experience which we would all recommend to anyone. The international visitors said they had not done anything to come up to it.


An Absolute Pleasure

From the initial quotation through to the events of the night, I found the Flagship staff and the boat crew to be very accommodating with any requests and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Warner Music


We just want to drop you a note of thanks for everything you, Kate and the crew did for our birthday party last Saturday night. The boat, Coast, the menu and the service were excellent and met all of our (high) expectations.

Thai Airways

Beautifully Presented

Your team onboard could not have done or said another thing to have made the trip more enjoyable. They were wonderful. Looking after a diverse group of people. The food was beautifully presented and served. Portions were generous and the quality very good.

Basaka-Jon Fine Foods

By Far the Best

We have chartered five different vessels over the last 10 years and the Commissioner II has been by far the best for comfort, layout - in fact everything. You know you have had a great time when 4 hours goes by so fast. Couldn't recommend it higher.

DTS Communicate


Hello Michael I was on board MV Commissioner 11 on Boxing Day to enjoy the start of Sydney to Hobart. Just wanted to say thank you for a superb day on our Sensational Sydney Harbour. You and your team made the day most memorable for all of us. Perhaps there will be events including Boxing Day in the future that we may like to enjoy on your cherished and classic timber 87. Sincerely Jaz


Perfect for Our Function

The skipper was more than obliging to our needs and requests. He went out of his way to ensure that all had a great day. Without that type of co-operation, things can go wrong vey easily. The boat was perfect for our function and people actually commented on how clean and well maintained it was.

Oxford Hotel


The team on Lady Rose provided exceptional service for the 2 days of hire. In fact, they went beyond the call of duty which was very much appreciated by staff and guests. I am delighted to recommend their services if asked.

Victor Goldstein Event Management


Our guests had an amazing time on the cruise – they were raving about the gorgeous boat and friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable staff for the rest of the trip! It was such a remarkable way to see Sydney, and they said they had to keep pinching themselves to make sure it was real! So thank you to the whole AQA team for everything, they were fantastic

Universal Pictures

Better Than Great

I wanted to let you know what a great success our lunch on Oceanos II was. Mel and Vicki are absolutely wonderful hosts and the presentation of the boat was gorgeous. The food was better than great (our guests were all totally blown away by it). Thank you so much for helping us with this wonderful event, we will certainly recommend you and your team to everyone.


Truly Professional

Flagship Cruises have a truly professional team. Everyone knows the fleet well, and all the people we talked to had practical and smart advice to give on boat types, pick-up and drop-off points, food, wine and beverage selections. The only thing that bettered the support on the ground was the actual boat charter itself – perfect timing, an attentive and personable crew, and terrific quality all around.

Beautiful NYE

We just want to thank your for the highest level of professionalism that so much contributed to our beatiful New Year's Eve on your yacht Commissioner II Your crew were friendly and attentive, food and drinks delicious and abundant (and, when the crew got to know that I'm vegeterian, they offered me vegeterian dishes without any special request from my side!) and all the premises were clean and cosy. Very much hope to come back again!

Olga and Dmitry - Moscow

Thoroughly Enjoyed

I just wanted to let you know I had wonderful feedback from my client regarding the Commissioner II dinner cruise. The overall experience of the vessel together with quality of food & beverage was positively received by all! They loved the old worldly feel of Commissioner and thoroughly enjoyed the night. On a personal note, thank you very much for Flagship’s excellent service. You were extremely helpful and always so prompt throughout the organisation of the event, and I sincerely appreciate it. Thank you!

American Express

Top Notch

I tip my hat to you all for last night. The vessel, service, quality of food, food, food again, staff, drinks services, wonderfully engaging and talented SPANK band …… all a credit to you all. The customers and staff were thrilled and all had such a wonderful time. I could go on for paragraphs, but a 10 out of 10 from us. Thank you for all your incredible hard work and planning behind the scenes, and top notch delivery on the night. What a very cool night, helped by the Sydney weather.

Williment Travel

Compliments All Around

Many thanks to you and Michael for all your help with the organizing and smooth running of the day. Mum has received many calls from guests saying how much they loved it all. The wait staff were excellent - quick and efficient, the food was excellent. Many of our family have operated restaurants and are therefore quite fussy, but it was compliments all around. It was really great to be able to use the plasma screen - the photo montage worked really well. The boat was weather proof - I think everyone was very comfortable. There's really nothing that I would have changed!

Sarah Thompson

So Much Fun

We would like to thank you both for one of the best days that we have ever had on the harbour watching the 18ft skiffs race, we obtained tickets on line and let me tell you that we had so much fun...met the nicest people on the cruise, the food was great and the commentary was spot on, and was certainly value for money. We had driven to Sydney for this occasion (7.5hrs) and we were not disappointed, everything was so well organised that we could not fault anything. If you would like to use this as a testimonial please do...if anyone wanted to use Your boat for a function we could certainly recommend it. You and your crew are first class. Very professional! Once again thank you for a fantastic day.

A Magical NYE

For New Year's Eve my partner gave me this gift - the best gift I have ever received! A night aboard the Commissioner II to bring in the new year, and it was what can only be described as magical. The whole evening was brilliant. The prompt and stress-free pick up, the amazingly friendly staff, the restroom facilities were top class - definitely was not expecting such good facilities aboard a boat. As we had paid upfront and our package included food and drink, I half expected poor quality and quantity... But the food was great, and the champagne kept flowing, there was definitely no shortage of food or drink. The staff are a credit to flagship, everyone I had an interaction with was very positive and helpful, I thank them greatly for given up their NYE to make mine a memory of a lifetime! Having space to move about and a prime spot outside deck to watch the firework was amazing. We were in the parade of lights, sailing up and down under harbour bridge, with first class view for the midnight fireworks. This purchase was totally out of our budget but completely worth it, I felt VIP all evening, and will not forget this night for as long as I live!
