The Yot Club 2020

The next-level party boat has two bars, a stage and a dance floor — and it's sailing through Brisbane again.

Brisbane has long been partial to a party boat. The Island did the honours from the 80s through until early last decade, and Seadeck has cruised the river over the past couple of years. Now Yot Club has started sailing into the city's waters, and it's making quite a big splash — as you'd expect from a huge yacht with two bars, a stage, a dance floor and, in normal times, a 400-person capacity.

Returning for the second half of 2020 under COVID-Safe guidelines — so no, it won't be jam-packed — Yot Club's next series of shindigs will float through town on selected Saturdays. The glamorous, custom-built vessel calls itself "the world's first super yacht entertainment venue", and it's certainly something that southeast Queensland hasn't seen before. Sprawling over two levels, it measures nearly 40-metres long and over 22-metres wide, and blends a licensed floating club and a luxe function space.

With lounges across an open deck and undercover, a VIP room in the hull, both general and ticketed events set to welcome guests, and the promise of bands and DJs on its lineup, Yot Club wants to be the region's one-stop watery hangout. It serves up more than water, of course, thanks to a menu of classic and creative cocktails, plus brews chilled in the 45-keg-capacity cool room.

Yot Club sets off from South Bank's Ferry Terminal One, with tickets starting from $49. You can head along to a Saturday session on August 15 and 22; September 19 and 26; and October 3, 10, 24 and 31 — with cruises departing at either 12.30pm/1.30pm and 6pm/6.30pm. More events for November and December are also planned.

Yot Club's latest Brisbane season runs on selected Saturdays, with bookings currently available until October.
