About the function space

The Lady Cutler Melbourne Showboat is the only way to party.

Let the lady help you to celebrate that special occasion. With the stunning backdrop of the Melbourne city skyline, Bolte Bridge, Williamstown and other possible locations such as Brighton boxes, St Kilda Pier and Sandringham beach; the sights and photo opportunities whilst cruising Melbourne's beautiful bay will impress your guests.

Head to one of our stunning decks, drink in hand, water twinkling beneath, stars shining, and toast to the perfect party. Your guests will love soaking up the views from the bow of the boat as the water rushes past, or they can linger on the side balconies of the vessel if desired.

The lower deck has a bar, club lounge and dance floor, while upstairs can be a dining space, a chill out room or a presentation and nibbles deck.

Catering options include finger food, substantial canapes, buffet style or full sit down meals.

Our well stocked bars can serve a large number of guests quickly for a dance party or full professional waiter service is available for a sit down meal.

This is a truly unique and amazing function opportunity.
