Now in its 31st year, the world-famous Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is set to be a sell-out. Dream Yacht Charter has secured our spot on the Marina on Pier E, come and have a chat with us on the stand and see the exciting new developments for 2019.

Brand New Bali 4.1 Australian Debut at SCIBS

As the Bali Catamaran Sales agents for Bali Catamarans we are excited to introduce the new Bali 4.1 model into the Australian market. The Bali 4.1 has been refined to be even more spacious and practical with features such as a full-sized fridge, clever storage solutions and a fully open living space. To celebrate her debut we are offering a Charter on the Bali 4.1 in the Whitsundays, come and have a personal tour of the boat and enter the Competition to win.

“The build quality is excellent, and the renewed design amplifies the seductive atmosphere. The Bali 4.1 remains alive, enjoyable to sail, simple to handle, and the innovations seen on board are both relevant and very well implemented.”   – Philippe Echelle in Multihull Magazine

For anyone wanting to become a Charter Boat Owner, the Bali 4.1 will also be available for purchase as part of our Ownership program – an exciting opportunity for any sailing enthusiast.

Our Guide to Charters

Our company stands for inclusivity and has designed its charters to make sailing available to all regardless of sailing experience. We’ve launched a movement to encourage more women at sea, which is being led by our partnership with Anna Mourou as she circumnavigates from 2020. Anna founded a woman’s sailing network in Sweden, which now has 3,000 members. See her She Captain Instagram  #shecaptain

A lack of sailing qualifications is not a barrier to going on a sailing vacation. We offer bareboat yacht charters, where you sail the boat yourself, or, if you can’t sail, are not confident or want to completely relax, we can provide a sail guide.

For those seeking a high quality, luxurious vacation, our crewed yacht charters are personalized to the preferences of you and your guests, offering an attentive yet discrete five-star service. Our expert crew is experienced in hospitality and have extensive local knowledge. They’ll work with you to design a tailored itinerary and menu to ensure your vacation is everything you could wish for.

With our by the cabin charter’s you can reserve a double cabin in +15 exotic locations on our catamarans with up to six cabins available on each. These guaranteed departure organized mini cruises allow you to relax and take in the destination highlights, while our crew sails the yacht, manages the itinerary and serves you delicious on-board meals.
