How Much Is A Yacht Charter In The Whitsundays?

You can’t really answer, “How much is a yacht charter in the Whitsundays” until you decide which vessel you want to hire. The most popular luxury yacht charters are for smaller groups of around 8-12 people. The price for this size of yacht charter is generally around $8,000 - $9,000, which is the total cost for 3 days. 

Some 3 day yacht charters are for larger groups, such as Apollo which fits 26 people, and Atlantic Clipper which fits up to 50 people. These price tags will be much higher, but you can split the costs with a larger group. Most yacht charters are all-inclusive, so the price covers the vessel rental, fuel, national park fees, crew, food, gear, equipment, linens, and everything else! Alcohol is usually the only thing not included, though most yachts allow you to bring your own.
