Luxury Yacht Charter

Departing: Cairns

Luxury Motor Yacht
  • Discover the Great Barrier Reef in 5-star style
  • Enjoy world-class dining with meals skilfully prepared by a cordon-bleu chef onboard using local, fresh produce
  • Be as relaxed or active as you like. Paddleboard, wakeboard, kiteboard, snorkel, dive, and fish; or lie back with a book on a deck chair or in the spa jacuzzi

Indulge in exquisite luxury as you explore the remote islands and pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef aboard this sophisticated and stylish 115ft (35m) private charter super yacht. Charters depart from Cairns, Port Douglas, or the Whitsundays.

She is the creme de la creme of private charter super yachts in Port Douglas, Cairns the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Based at her home port of Cairns, this luxury super yacht is able to accommodate 12 guests on a daily charter, or 12 guests on extended overnight private charter tours in five staterooms.

This luxurious private charter superyacht stretches 115 feet (35m) and boasts a spacious interior fitted with the finest European furnishings, sophisticated entertainment systems, and elegant touches.

Whether you’re looking to fill your days snorkeling the Great Barrer Reef from Cairns, exploring remote islands, wakeboarding, paddle boarding, or kiteboarding, the boats crew will have you sorted with plenty of watersports gear on board.

Or, if you’d rather just relax, then sunbathe or soak in the jacuzzi as you take in ocean views from the top deck.  

Equipment is also available for deep sea fishing, with the option to devote a whole charter to an adventure fishing expedition.

For the consumate scuba divers we offer full scuba diving equipment and compressor onboard.

After a day of discovering some of the most remote fishing locations, you’ll be able to end it in luxury, with a world-class meal prepared by your onboard cordon bleu chef – potentially the catch of the day – and a well-deserved drink.

Explore the Treasures of the Great Barrier Reef in Luxury

This is the creme de la creme of luxury super yachts in Australia. Based at two ports both Cairns and Port Douglas she is available to cruise all over Australia, Papua New Guinea and the Solomons Islands.

She is yours to enjoy at the highest level of private charter boats.

Cruising aboard this deluxe vessel you’ll be taken on an expedition of the hidden treasures of the far northern reaches of the Great Barrier Reef or the southern islands in the Whitsundays.

From Port Douglas or Cairns, you’ll be able to snorkel, scuba dive, and fish, to your heart’s content among pristine, clear waters, renowned for their varied marine life.

Or relax and soak in the surrounding nature from the top deck while sipping on a cocktail and nibbling on canapés.

During winter months, keep a lookout for breaching humpback whales. 

Sample Port Douglas Boat Charter Itinerary Day One

After a scenic helicopter flight from Cairns along the fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll land in the beautiful seaside destination of Port Douglas, where you’ll then be transferred to your private charter motor yacht that will be home for the next few days.

After meeting your Captain and the crew, it’s time to unwind and begin your decadent getaway with cocktails and canapés.

At your leisure, you will be briefed on the safety procedures and fully familiarised with the yacht and its facilities as the vessel cruises towards Low Isles just off Port Douglas.

Once anchored you’re free to take a dip in the tropical waters to meet the underwater locals or have a play with the water sports equipment.

Dinner, prepared by Chef Jo, will be served on board at your leisure.

Day Two Northern Great Barrier Reef

On the second day, your luxury charter yacht will travel north approximately 35 nautical miles to Rachel Carson Reef as breakfast is being served.

Named after the famous marine biologist it’s here the vessel will anchor in the pristine, calm waters perfect for snorkelling.

Divers will be taken to a spot only a short tender ride away from the yacht to explore the coral formations and marine life.   

For those who aren’t certified, instructor-assisted dives can be organised. During the months of June and July, you’ll also have the unique opportunity to snorkel or dive with the inquisitive and graceful dwarf minke whales.

The Great Barrier Reef is the only place where the annual arrival of these whales can be predicted.

In the afternoon, try your hand at fishing or stand-up paddle boarding. Lunch and dinner will be served at your convenience whilst anchored.

During the evening, the luxury motor yacht will cruise further north to Lizard Island, arriving with the sunrise.

Day Three Lizard Island

Imaginatively named by Captain Cook in 1770 – after the many goannas and monitor lizards that call the island home – Lizard Island is today a national park of more than 1,000 hectares.

Home to prolific bird and marine life as well as the country’s northernmost island resort, the island is made up of grasslands, paperbark swamps, mangroves, and 24 beaches boasting powdery white sand.

It is also a world-renowned tropical marine research destination, so you know you’re in for some spectacular underwater scenery.  

The superyacht will anchor in Watsons Bay, and after a leisurely breakfast, you can spend the day snorkelling, diving, kayaking, paddle boarding, or even kite surfing in Blue Lagoon.

And if you’d like to indulge in a little pampering, Lizard Island is home to an exclusive resort, where an appointment at the spa can be easily arranged.

Lunch and dinner will be prepared on board by Chef Jo. As night falls, sit back with a cocktail and watch as the marine life feed under the submerged lights of the yacht.

Day Four Ribbon Reefs

Today the charter yacht will make its way to the Ribbon Reefs; a string of 10 individual coral reefs each separated by a channel. It’s remote location and classification as a green zone make it an incredible site to snorkel and dive. You’ll be visiting reef ‘number nine’.  

You may spot a pod of playful spinner dolphins, and if you’re visiting around June and July keep a lookout for the curious minke whales, who will be just as fascinated by you as you are of them.

Cast a line from the back of the boat into the waters teeming with coral trout, nannygai, and jobfish; your catch will be prepared into a fantastic evening meal by Chef Jo. 
  
You’ll then sail to Lizard Island at sunset for your final evening. 

Day Five Lizard Island Flight Home

After breakfast, you’ll have time for a final snorkel, paddle board, or kayak. You’ll then be transferred to the airstrip on Lizard Island to begin your journey home, taking with you lasting memories of your time spent on one of the most luxurious private charter yachts on the Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
