Christmas Holidays Sailing the Whitsundays 1:46pm, Mon 18 Oct 2021

With only a few months away until the silly season, what better way to spend your Christmas break, sailing the Whitsundays. Why not hire a bareboat and discover the 74 islands have to offer.

Bareboating in the Whitsundays is known for its protected anchorages and generally calm seas. Cumberland Charter Yachts has a fleet of 28 boats based in Airlie Beach, the gateway to the Whitsundays Islands and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Choose from Sailing Yachts, Sailing Catamarans or Power Catamarans, ranging in size from 32 to 47 feet and sleeping up to 10 people.

The Whitsundays is truly breathtaking and there is no better way to explore it, than with your own private yacht straight from our Cumberland base at the Coral Sea Marina.

Wake up to world famous Whitehaven Beach on Christmas day and spend the morning opening presents before a game of cricket on the beach. Dip in and out of the aqua blue water before a BBQ lunch back on board the boat.

Boating licences and qualifications are not a requirement for charter hire however, your experience and boating know how is important to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment on board. A comprehensive half day briefing is included, but if you are low on experience we will suggest spending the first day with our Sail Guide. Or if you would prefer to have someone else do the navigating for you, hire a Sail Guide for the duration of your charter.

Stand up paddle boards and kayaks are available for hire and are highly recommended for the kids. Stinger suits, snorkels are also available as well as a collection of books and dvds’ for your use on charter.
