Fully Crewed Yacht Charters Whitsundays Qld

If you cannot sail or are travelling alone or do not have the budget to bareboat charter, you can still sail the Whitsundays.

Select your dream yacht, be it a square rigger, a luxury cruiser, a modern catamaran or a traditional cruising yacht, then toss your cap and sunscreen on your berth and let the professional crew do the rest.

Fully crewed vessels cruise the islands during the day and tuck into secluded coves at night. Some even sail to the outer Barrier Reef, located about 30 nautical miles beyond the islands. However, like sailors from a bygone era, the weather will often be your guide and you'll venture wherever a fair breeze takes you.

How much you participate on each trip is entirely up to you. The skipper and crew are more than happy to show you the ropes and will even hand over the helm for brief periods, if you're brave enough! The same goes for the daily agenda. A typical day might include a short swim before breakfast off the bow of the boat, a sail to a deserted island beach for a spot of snorkelling, fishing, island exploring and sunbaking. Or you might just want to kick back on the deck and read a book, How much you do is entirely up to you.

Accommodation varies with each boat, however most fully crewed charters feature individual bunk beds in shared cabins or private cabins for couples.

Generally, all food and equipment (ie. snorkelling gear, fishing gear, linen etc.) is provided by the boat. The advantage of sailing on a fully crewed charter is not a savings in monetary terms but a relaxed, stress free holiday where all you have to do is enjoy yourself.
