Have you ever sailed past the New Perth Stadium, stopped at Guildford
or any of the Swan Valley wineries from the water?
In our fibreglass boats, you can do just that, with up to seven friends,
in a self-drive, electrical hire boat.

See Perth’s landscape and river as you have never seen it before. You will be your own captain and have the freedom of exploring the Swan River the way you want it.
Swan River, Perth’s favourite playground, is now open to anyone with or without a skippers ticket.
Charter a  boat and explore the winding river
from Upper Swan in the east to Fremantle in the west.

Kids will be entertained with nature at their fingertips and
with our Enviro Club butterfly nets they can help our river system and get a surprise on return.

The boat is Danish designed and seats up to 8 passengers around a central table.
G6, is fully electric powered, no emission and whisper quiet,
and has the option of a full Bimini roof to keep you out of the sun.

We launch from Bayswater Boat Ramp and you have the choice to go towards the CBD or up to the Swan Valley. Bring your picnic, gather your friends/family and hop on board. 

G6 is equipped with life jackets, first aid kid, ropes, boat hook, fire extinguisher,
emergency anchor and paddle, and maps of the river. 

We will provide a 15min safety briefing, driving and route induction and you will be on your way, silently cruising the Swan River, taking in its natural beauty and history.
We are mighty proud of being the first hire and drive, electrical boat business on the Swan and we would love to have you aboard.

Your adventure is set!

Enviro pirates

The GoBoat crew daily recruit ’Enviro pirates’ who are given a butterfly net and a mission to collect rubbish on the water. The efforts are of course rewarded with a thank you and a small surprise.

Teach what sustainability is

Give the children insight into what sustainability is, and let them come into close contact with nature and our living river.

Do you have something special to celebrate?

GoBoat has been the successful setting for everything from celebrating a completed exam, a new job or a marriage proposal. You can decorate the boat as you wish with flowers, balloons and anything else you might feel like, as long as it is returned in the same condition as you hired it in.

Special occasions

Celebrate your birthday or special occasion on the water with the people you love. Visit an oasis of the harbour for a lovely picnic in the sun and celebrate the day in unique surroundings that give you and your guests a festive and unforgettable experience.

Family outing

A trip on the water offers unique togetherness and fun experiences for the whole family. Bring your family aboard and have an unforgettable day that all ages can enjoy. Because a trip in a GoBoat is also enjoyable for the smallest members of the family.

See the City

Take your kids out in a GoBoat and let them gain insight into the history and sights of the river.



Our boats are Danish-designed picnic boats running on reusable batteries that are charged by electricity. With a maximum speed of 3.5 knots (6.5 kph/4 mph), you set your own course and pace, and you can silently navigate the river and quays while exploring by water. The boats are designed with comfort and maritime safety in mind and have ample room for eight people.

GoBoats are developed with a great admiration and respect for the maritime spirit and serve as a breathing space in the city and as a platform towards sustainable, fun and cultural experiences that can be enjoyed by all age groups, tourists, international as well as locals.


A certain sense of freedom is associated with the water, and at the same time, it is a wonderful way to be together. Anyone can operate our boats, and neither licence nor past experience is required, only that the person operating the boat is at least 18 years of age, sober and respectful of the rules of the river conduct, the other sailors and the residents living by the river.


GoBoat Perth is located at Claughton Reserve, Bayswater. We look forward to sending you off on your river adventure, whether the sun is high in the sky or the day is cloudy, whether it is spring, summer or just a day out, our friendly crew are ready to greet you and send you off on your river cruise.
