The Ena Experience

Welcome aboard Steam Yacht ENA. A destination of opulence and luxury for once in a life time events.  Much more than a boat cruise. Embark aboard a journey of history, nostalgia, and gastronomy. 

Ena will enchant you with her detail, beauty and style.  More akin to a piece of art than a sea-faring vessel, the 113-year-old treasure, described as “flawless and without equal”, is widely regarded as the world’s finest.

Her gleaming brass and gold are complimented by warm radiant varnished timbers. With luxurious fabrics, etched glass murals, timber carvings and sophisticated appointments adorning her cabins.  It’s not hard to see why she spent so much of her life accessible only to society’s elite.

Ena’s expansive white beach deck invite guest to mingle comfortably while enjoying the changing foreshore scenery.  Entertain up to 49 guests with Canapé style dinning, or impress guests with formal dining for up to 20.  It really is the most divine way to dine.  In both cases, first-class waiters serve sumptuous food and fine wines which are complimented by an opulent setting of crystal, china and silverware.

While Champaign, cigars and laughter evoke memories to be, below deck a beautiful & gleaming steam engine silently propels her guests from one stunning vista to the next. For to charter a boat like ENA is an experience few privilege, but all delight.

We hope to enjoy your company aboard Steam Yacht ENA - We’re located in Docklands Melbourne and are available for exclusive cruises on the bay and river.

State of the Art - 1901

Plying the waters between Sydney, Hobart and Cape York, Steam Yacht Ena carries over a century of Australia’s maritime history within her decks.  Arriving in Melbourne in 2014, Ena returns again to the role of luxury cruising for which she was originally created.

On Deck

The expansive white beach deck invites guests to stroll comfortably while enjoying the changing foreshore views. First class waiters serve exceptional food and wine, while bespoke crystal, crockery and silverware complete the luxurious package.

The aft deck can accommodate formal dining, with tables being positioned to take in the surrounding scenery.

"SY Ena stops everyone in their tracks, and has them lost for words when they go aboard."

Every little detail

Throughout the entire vessel, gleaming brass and gold compliment warm radiant varnished timber, luxurious fabrics and finely appointed fixtures and fittings. Below deck the elegant ladies' cabin has magnificent seating, stunning finely carved varnished woodwork, etched glass murals and opulent appointments. The gentlemen's saloon aft has the addition of day beds and folding card table. The main saloon features a beautifully detailed inlayed timber table that is complimented by period appointments.

The History


The History


S. Y. Ena was built in 1900 as the private vessel of an affluent Sydney banker.  Sir T. A. Dibbs and his chosen company could slip away from the bustle of the city and relish in the natural surrounds of Sydney from the seclusion of Ena’s timber decks.  114 years later Ena offers these same cruising privileges to her select guests here in Melbourne.

Steaming down the Yarra and out into Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne’s city skyline provides a stunning backdrop to the intimacy of a private charter.  

 

With a capacity of up to 49 passengers, this steam yacht offers a cruising experience that cannot be matched.

A cruise on Ena sails beyond the limits of modern luxury cruising.  The faithfulness to her original construction and the authenticity of her Edwardian detail harkens back to the long, golden, leisurely days of the early 1900’s.  This vessel is the best example of a distinct moment in our nation’s history, showcasing the craftsmanship and refined elegance of our past. 

We welcome you aboard Steam Yacht Ena where we can offer you the distinctive pleasure of modern fine wines and dining on-board one of the few lasting luxury vessels of yesterday.
