The Lady Cutler Melbourne Showboat is Melbourne's largest cruising events venue. This iconic multi-level vessel features two dance floors, a VIP lounge area, a fully serviced bar and kitchen for on board catering and outdoor decking for cruisers to enjoy the views as we cruise along the Yarra River into the bay of Williamstown and St Kilda.

Since 2007, we have hosted 2,000+ cruises in the corporate, entertainment, wedding and private celebration sectors. Our highly professional crew of Marine Specialists, Event Managers and dedicated Chefs will provide you with a personal VIP service to meet your specific needs and standards.

Our family owned business takes great pride in delivering unique event ideas, exceptional service and tailored cruises to suit your needs.

In light of the recent pandemic, our staff have been working tirelessly to 'change with the tide', and we are pleased to announce the launch of our new 'BurgerBeers by the Pier' restaurant. During this time our staff and crew have been tasked with finding Melbourne's freshest food suppliers, sourcing the richest flavours and fine tuning the delectable recipes so we can tailor the BEST BURGERS in MELBOURNE! As of Monday 12th of October, 'Burger Beers by the Pier' will be serving unbeatable burgers daily between the hours of 4-8pm (takeaway and delivery available) with an on board whisky bar *link to whisky bar page soon to be open to the public.
