What is a bareboat charter?

A bareboat charter is a holiday charter in which you hire a boat without a crew. In other words, you are your own skipper on either a sailing or power vessel. No license is required for a Yacht Charter in the Whitsundays, unlike other locations worldwide. With a sailing boat, previous experience is helpful, however we will offer a brief training session before you head out, for either sailing or powered yachts. If you aren’t comfortable captaining your own ship, we are happy to arrange for guided charters as well, offering the services of an accomplished sailing crew and even cooks, if desired.

We have a thoroughly maintained, modern fleet comprised of 28 yachts available, designed to accommodate all budgets. Our models on offer include Fountaine Pajot Catamarans, Catalina Yachts, Montebello Catamarans, Seawind Catamarans, and Tasman Catamarans. You can read more information about each yacht on our website.

The Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef

The Whitsundays, located off the Queensland coast are located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, making them an ideal point from which to explore the natural wonder. A bareboat yacht charter is not permitted to visit the Outer Barrier Reef, but there are many tours on offer to take you out there. Meanwhile, enjoy the innumerable locations in the Whitsunday Islands where you can anchor your vessel and experience some incredible diving and snorkelling. 74 islands make up the Whitsundays, and there are countless places not to be missed. Whitehaven Beach is a must-see, a pure white sandy beach which is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Because of the Whitsundays’ location in relation to the Great Barrier Reef, the islands are protected from some of the larger ocean swells, keeping the waters calm and peaceful. This makes a Whitsunday Yacht Charter the absolute perfect option for your sailing holiday.
