The Decoy Paddle Steamer is available for Perth Boat Hire and is one of the most iconic charter boats on the Swan River. She can hold up to 220 guests. As a consequence, she is the perfect wedding venue for both wedding cruises, wedding ceremonies as well as wedding receptions.
The Decoy was built in West Australia and is a hugely popular venue for doing Swan River boat charters. The steamer has a licensed bar and kitchen. She serves food, as well as locally brewed beers and grown wines.
In addition to being a charter vessel, the Decoy also facilitates a range of entertainment throughout the year including our famous live Music Cruises on the Swan River, Jazz cruises, Perth’s only Riverboat Burlesque and Comedy shows.
The vessel can also be chartered for any occasion. To discuss your wedding, corporate, or other private event, please call 0405 353 353 or email us an enquiry.
