The Yot Club 2022
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, Seadeck has cruised the river over the past couple of years, and Yot Club been sailing into the city's waters for a while now, too. The latter has been making quite a big splash, in fact — 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 2022, Yot Club's next series of shindigs will float through town in February. The glamorous, custom-built vessel calls itself "the world's first super yacht entertainment venue", and it's certainly something that southeast Queensland hadn't seen before it hit our waters. 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, 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 City Botanic Gardens River Hub, with tickets starting from $39.95 depending on the day and time you're planning to hop onboard.
For its current run of dates across weekends between Saturday, February 12–Sunday, February 20, you can pick festival-themed sessions in both daytime (12.30–3.30pm) and evening slots (6–9pm), opt for a Sunday lunch (11.30am–2pm), end your weekend with some Sunday arvo R&B tunes (4.30–7.30pm) or make a Friday night of it (7.30–10.30pm) with DJs on the decks.
