Sleep Aboard Offer
We provide a sleep aboard service which offers you the option of sleeping on board your vessel the night prior to charter departure. Check-in is 4:00pm. This gives you time to provision your vessel, unpack and relax the night prior. Your briefing will commence the next morning on board your vessel at 8:30. You will receive a 10-15 minute sleep aboard brief, which involves a quick orientation of the basics on board such as lighting, electrics and toilets etc. We look forward to greeting you in our office prior to boarding whereby we will quickly complete paperwork. Contact our reservations team to book your Sleep Aboard.

Please note that where the Vessel states Max Passengers, this is the number of passengers allowed on board according to the boat survey.
When the Max Passenger numbers on board exceed the number of cabins, the extra Bed is the Drop Down Bed in the Saloon/Dining area, (which is the Dining Table which converts to a bed) which usually accommodates, 2 people, however, on some vessels the Drop-down Bed may only be big enough for a single Adult or a child. (The Forepeak Berths are not in use as cabins.)
The Cabins are double occupancy for couples or friends/children who are happy to share a cabin, there are a few single beds in some of our vessels, however a single person may take a Cabin, or the Drop Down Bed in the Saloon/Dining area.
Please contact our team to clarify the sleeping arrangements during your booking or if you decide to add extra people on board please advise our team in a timely manner to make sure that it is possible to accommodate your extra guests on your vessel.
Please note that recommended number of passengers may differ to Max Passengers as for your comfort on board we sometimes recommend less people for your comfort and privacy, so your guests will each have a cabin and access to a bathroom and frees up the space for Dining.

The security bond will cover against any loss or damage to the vessel including groundings, rigging, loss of dinghy or outboard, stuck anchors, blocked heads, prop wraps caused by sheets, moorings, anchor ropes, dock lines, dinghy painters, halyards, floating rope and the removal thereof, chase calls due to charterer (i.e. blocked heads).
The bond will be released after completion of your charter if there is no damage to the vessel after the Dive inspection. If there are no deductions from the Security Bond, it will be refunded to the Charterer within 14 days of Redelivery Date.
In the event of any deductions from the Security Bond for insurance excess or consequential credit card or banking charges, demurrage, repair of any damage or loss of equipment, or any accident, breakdown, recall or repossession of the Boat, the balance will be refunded to the Charterer as soon as is reasonably practicable once the repairs are completed or the deduction is calculated, whichever is the latter.
Regardless of clause 13.3, even if the fault is caused or contributed through no fault of the Operator or Charterer (for example, such as striking a marine animal or submerged object) the risk is that of the Charterer’s and the Charterer is not entitled to any refund of Charter Fees and is liable for all damage assessed against the Boat. It is recommended the Charterer takes out appropriate insurance cover for such events.

Have you ever seen people relaxing on a yacht and wished it could be you? Good news, it can be, with a Sail Guide on your Charter.

Our Sail Guides have the expertise and local knowledge to take you to all of the best locations including stunning beaches, fishing, snorkelling and diving spots, secluded bays and scenic walks to name a few, making the most out of the Whitsundays on your Queensland Yacht Charter. Your sail guide will require a private cabin and all meals and beverages provided daily throughout the duration of your holiday. The same is applicable if you wish the services of a hostess/cook.
