Our Story

Funcats Watersports was founded in 1976 and has been committed to customer satisfaction ever since.


Over the years, the business grew in size and popularity and has become the largest catamaran hire business in Australia.


Our business has become an iconic part of South Perth and it is not uncommon to have the entire fleet of 40 catamarans sailing on the Swan River in front of the city.

We do our best to ensure a wide selection of rentals to suit everyone. and in more recent times Funcats has introduced both stand up paddle boards (SUPs) and kayaks into the hire fleet. 

Funcats really does have something for everyone! We hope to see you soon


Still have questions? Take a look at more of our frequently asked questions

Do you offer gift cards/vouchers?

Yes we do! Give the gift of an experience on the river with a funcats gift voucher, you can either buy one through out website here or drop down and visit us at the river to pick one up!

At what age is it safe to take children on a catamaran?

5 years old is the youngest age we will allow children on the catamarans.

If you wish to take young children on a catamaran we suggest that you discuss this with us on the day. Many factors such as sailing experience, how windy it is, and the conditions on the day very much influence the advice we give to hirers.

Do I need a skipper’s ticket / boat licence to hire a boat?

No licence is required to take any of our boats out. Within minutes you will be enjoying your day on the beautiful Swan River.

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept all major credit and debit cards, and cash.
