It lies in Pittwater Bay, a body of water sheltered by the exclusive Palm Beach peninsula, which is 28 miles from Sydney’s city centre and where many wealthy Australians have swanky holiday homes.

‘It is the perfect venue to either reset from the world in ultimate comfort or host friends and colleagues in a way like never before.

‘The design and construction of Lilypad was a feat in engineering to ensure guests could experience luxury accommodation on an entirely stable surface, whilst drifting with the rhythmic sounds and movements of the ocean.

‘Growing up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and spending much of my life around boats, I always had a vision to create something truly special that people can now enjoy as their own, a design space and service that would eliminate the pitfalls of the traditional boating experience whilst amplifying the rest.’
