Bareboat Yacht Charters
Whether you are a group of young fun seekers looking for good times or a family on the move seeking a holiday with a difference, bare boating holidays can easily be designed to make the most of your holiday time and budget.
The Whitsunday Islands are a world recognised sailing "Mecca" for sailing holidaymakers with well organised bareboat facilities established mainly in Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour.
Bareboat charters are a skipper-yourself type of charter. A certain level of boat handling ability is required but most of the better bareboat charter companies offer a very comprehensive briefing on the first day to familiarise you with your vessel, and the area.
With 70 islands clustered within the Whitsunday "100 Magic Miles" you'll delight in short and comfortable hops between anchorages. Most visitors enjoy the freedom to do their own thing, however a cruise guide is available to accompany you for a day or even for your entire adventure.
Most boats have 6 to 10 berths and prices are very seasonal ranging between $350 and $650 per night depending on the type of vessel and the time of year. Boats are normally chartered for a minimum of 5 days.
As the name would indicate, you are required to provide and prepare your own food on board, but most companies have a provisioning services available at reasonable prices.
