What our customers say

“Our group spent 5 days on Lunasea last week and we were so pleased with our decision to have booked our Charter with QYC.. The team at Abel Point were superb from the get go … Louis, Jock and Christine all went above and beyond … and Diver Tony came out went way down in order to clear a prop wrap just outside the harbour wall!!! Fantastic effort from all concerned at QYC and we thank you so very much!”

Craig S.A.

“We have just enjoyed a 7 night Whitsunday cruise on ‘Dreamtime Princess’ through QYC – a fabulous experience. The company is professional, efficient, informative and great fun to deal with. The vessel was comfortable and in excellent working order. The whole experience was great. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend QYC or charter through them again.”

Sally T

“Just back in dark and wet UK having spent an amazing week sailing around the Whitsundays on board Gypsy Rose II. Lovely yacht with great facilities, really comfortable with everything thought of. Great efficient service from QYC including the very detailed and helpful briefing from Scott. Great value, would highly recommend!”
