Queensland Sailing

A Queensland sailing charter is the best holiday that money can buy. Every one dreams of having their own yacht anchored in a quiet bay sipping champagne as the sun goes down and this can be a reality for you, if you charter a yacht somewhere in Queensland for your next holiday. Some charterers love this type of holiday so much that they come back year after year for the wonderful relaxing experience. There are many places throughout Queensland from which you can charter a yacht and explore sheltered and beautiful waterways. The Gold Coast has the Southport Broadwater. The Great Sandy Straits inside of Fraser Island and the Keppel islands are really popular. Probably the most popular place in Queensland is the magnificent waters of the Whitsunday Passage. Here there are some 74 islands, hundreds of headlands and quiet bays and some of the best beaches imaginable. Further to the north Hinchinbrook Island and the Cairns region are also extremely popular for a Queensland yacht charters holiday.

In the Whitsunday yacht charter region there are two main places to charter from. Hamilton Island yacht charters are really convenient. You can fly in direct to the Hamilton Island airport and the marina is within walking distance so this makes everything really easy. Sunsail operates its bare boat yacht charters from the Hamilton Island marina and several other companies that operate from the mainland can organize a Hamilton Island pickup. Airlie Beach is the center of the Yacht charter industry in the Whitsundays. Companies like Whitsunday rent a yacht, Queensland Yacht Charters and Whitsunday Private yacht charters all operate from either Able Point marina or from Shute Harbour. Bare Boat chartering from Airlie beach is extremely popular. There are also many crewed charter yachts available and you can enjoy a great day trip on a fast maxi yacht like Ragamuffin or join an extended trip into the islands with companies like Barefoot cruises, Prosail, Oz Adventure sailing and many others.

Most bare boat charter companies company’s will provide tuition if you are not an experienced sailor or they can also provide a paid skipper to show you the ropes for part or all of your Whitsunday sailing stay, so don’t choose not to go if you are a little tentative about handling the boat your self.
