The most romantic vessels in our fleet

A popular choice for couples, Summer Breeze is a 34” Beneteau Oceanis. Sought after for its value, intimate layout and comfort, she accommodates a couple in style.
Chantilly is the most luxurious yacht in our fleet. A Beneteau Lagoon 400 catamaran, she features a large “owner’s suite” with ensuite. Chantilly offers space, with an alfresco area on the deck and a large indoor area with 360 views.
Highland Fling :
A Beneteau Oceanis 41, Highland Fling is a near new monohull that’s reasonably easy to handle. With a shaded rear deck, external shower and two bathrooms you’ll be all set for a romantic sailing getaway.

How does a skipper yourself yacht charter work?
Often referred to as a bareboat charter, which means a yacht that doesn’t come with a crew, skipper yourself yacht charters are the ultimate freedom. When you sail your own charter yacht in the Whitsundays, you don’t need a license or qualification. No sailing experience is required.
You’re given a training session before you set sail and you can always opt for a sail guide at a daily rate if you want more time with an experienced skipper. Your vessel is fully stocked with all of the comforts, kitchen appliances and bedding you will need.
You are required to bring your food, however, we can make provisioning arrangements for you so that when you board your fridge is stocked, the bubbles are cold and a seafood platter is waiting for your first romantic evening.
Chat to us about preparing for your yacht charter so that we can ensure all the planning is done and any extras have been organised before you arrive.
Uninterrupted time together in the uncrowded and unspoiled natural beauty of the Whitsundays is the ultimate romantic escape for your shared bucket list. If you’re looking for a holiday which can provide you with days of adventure and nights of relaxation in a spectacular location, then look no further than sailing the Whitsundays.
