Powerboat hire in the Whitsundays


Hire a powerboat in the Whitsundays and explore the Islands in style.

Powerboats are sometimes referred to as power catamarans. The definition of a powerboat within a bareboat charter fleet is a live-a-board boat without sails. However, when hiring a vessel for a sailing holiday in the Whitsundays, all boats can be used as powerboats; they can simply be operated with the motor on.

The advantages of hiring a powerboat

One of the main advantages of a powerboat is that because sailing infrastructure is not needed, there is more living space. You’ll notice that most power catamarans have split levels, which is a great layout for social groups. Larger vessels often have two helm stations.

Powerboats are generally faster; a bonus is you are short on time and want to see as many locations as possible.

Catamarans provide many of the same advantages as powerboats. You can read about the pros and cons between a catamaran and a monohull to help you discover which charter boat is right for you.

Powerboat Hire with Whitsunday Rent a Yacht

Whitsunday Rent a Yacht are fortunate enough to have one of Australia’s best powerboats available for a bareboat charter. Lady Lynne, a 2022 Leopard 46 Powercat, is a spacious, elegant, seamless vessel. With all the modern fittings and design features, she feels more like a luxury hotel room than a boat.

Lady Lynne’s accommodation includes two double cabins with ensuites and a prominent owner’s suite. She has a convertible lounge for those wanting to fit a couple more on board.

Perhaps one of her best features is the upper-level lounge. From here, you can manoeuvre the boat from a second helm station, have a BBQ, enjoy the lounges or gather around for sunset cocktails using the outdoor galley fridge.
