Bareboat Yacht Charters Whitsundays Qld

For those who can sail, the most popular choice is bareboat charter, In other words, you choose the boat you want and crew it yourself. Sailing in the Whitsundays is a yachties dream. The channels between the islands are deep and the majority of islands are within line of sight from one another. The vast majority of the islands are National Parks (66 out of 74 islands).

In addition, because the island chain is a sunken mountain range rather than a string of coral atolls, safe, protected anchorages are numerous and spread evenly throughout the islands.

The line-up of yachts in Abel Point Marina at Airlie Beach are world class. They range from two berth yachts, perfect for couples, to sleek and roomy nine berth yachts of ocean going size.

There are modern cruising catamarans with up to 10 berths which can be treated as a motor cruiser or if the whim or wind takes, set to sail power.

There are modern, reliable motor cruisers, which traditional yachties tend to call luxury floating homes.

First timers unsure of the yacht or the waters can enjoy the services of a skipper who will stay on board until no longer needed.

The base stays in daily contact with all of its charter boats.

In addition, the boat can be provisioned ready to sail, down to select dietary items if requested.

Scuba dive equipment can also be loaded on board.
