The Weekend Edition: OASIS, a new party vessel from the Seadeck crew

OASIS, a new party vessel from the Seadeck crew, will soon call the Brisbane River home
We might be biased, but we think the Brisbane River is one of the most picturesque waterways in Australia – why don’t we take better advantage of it? That’s the exact kind of thinking behind OASIS, a new entertainment vessel setting sail next month. This floating three-level party spot will boast VIP tables, a number of cocktail-slinging bars and a rotating roster of local and internationally renowned DJs. It’ll be cruising up and down the river day and night from late April – take a peek at the ultra-cool vessel before it takes the water …

Boats are a common sight on the Brisbane River, from tinnies and yachts, to the odd party vessel cutting hot laps up and back along our iconic estuary’s most prominent reaches. OASIS, a newly constructed $10-million lifestyle and cruising boat, is looking to redefine floating frivolity in Brisbane. When it raises anchor and casts off from the dry dock in late April, OASIS will waste no time showing off its chic three-level, 500-person capacity interior (envisioned by designer Alex Zabotto-Bentley), with each tier boasting its own distinct aesthetic. The lower deck will feature a rich and opulent design scheme comprised of copper, dark hues and a pressed-tin ceiling, while the middle floor will double as a lush oasis within OASIS – think greenery, marble and wood features conjuring a sleek jungle vibe. Up above, the top deck will likely be the most in-demand level, with a candy pink and white striped deck accented by pops of mint green and tropical plants. Each deck will be equipped with its own bar, sound system and array of seating and standing areas (including full-service VIP tables and bookable spaces).

In addition to serving sensational river views and equally enticing cocktails, OASIS will be the spot to catch DJs and artists every Saturday and Sunday, with a weekly roster showcasing local talent and top-tier international acts. The entertainment line-up for the boat’s first couple of weekends has already been announced, with Fig Jam, Faint One, Geordie, Anna Sonnenburg, Darren Sommerville and Apollo performing the first afternoon session of OASIS Saturdays on April 22, before Kessin, Paluma, Madan Miguel, Nestor Vargas, Pish and Jacob Tompkins keep the good times going on Sunday April 23. On Saturday April 29, OASIS with host an arvo party in collaboration with La La Land, with a line-up featuring headliners Torren Foot and Airwolf Paradise.
