Falling in love with sailing is so very easy for many reasons: the sense of relaxed freedom having escaped the ordinary of daily life, the sheer exhilaration of gliding silently and effortlessly through pristine waters teaming with colourful life, the thrill of adventure with each passing moment and choosing your next destination on a whim, and the deep satisfaction of harnessing the power of nature to achieve your next port of call.

A sailing holiday in the Whitsundays Queensland is the premier destination for sailors of little or no experience and expert skippers alike. Setting sail from Airlie Beach, the cruising grounds are particularly well protected offering calm waters, sheltered bays, and anchorages only a few hours apart, with many options to stop and enjoy along the way including national parks and island resorts such as Hamilton Island, Hayman Island and Daydream Island.


If you’re an experienced “yachtie” ready to head out and enjoy this sailing holiday playground the Whitsundays is renowned for, rest easy knowing your boat is well equipped with premium sails, well serviced winches, reliable lines and sheets, comprehensive safety equipment and a nice clean hull. Our boats are designed for cruising, handle well in moderate conditions the Whitsundays enjoys year round, and are set up to be manned by minimal crew. Yachting has never been easier or more enjoyable!
