Reasons to charter a yacht through an agent 

  • It costs the same!

Are there any extra or hidden fees when booking with an agent? Usually no, but it depends on the agent. Travel agents are commission-based, meaning a small percentage of the hire cost goes to the agency. In our case, we pride ourselves in maintaining a no-hidden fees system, so guests will never a cent more when booking through us rather than directly. As such, you can book with ease, let us take care of the details and benefit from our wealth of local knowledge accumulated from over 20 years in the industry!

  • Events made easy 

Whether you’re planning a corporate or private event, booking your superyacht occasion is made easier by booking through an agency. With our local team on the ground to assist you with all of the specifics, you can rest assured we’ll have everything perfect for your day, right down to the little details. We specialise in birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and New Year's parties, corporate and team building, product launches, engagements and hens/bucks parties.

  • Luxury is more luxurious without planning

Ditch the worrying and planning by going through a travel agent with your next yacht hire. Simply advise our staff of your preferences and secure your hire dates and we will sort out the rest! We'll book your airport transfers, accommodation and everything in between too to ensure your total Whitsunday stay is perfect. From catering to water toys to important hire conditions and the whens, wheres and hows, hiring a superyacht through an agent is the most stress-free option for your next holiday, event or corporate incentive.

  • Local knowledge

By booking through a local agent, you will benefit from the abundance of local knowledge at your disposal. Many yachts and superyachts are stationed in the Whitsundays permanently, whereas some are only available in the area seasonally. As such, it’s smoother to have a small team of expert Whitsunday agents to assist you in tailoring your itinerary while utilising their local knowledge and connections.

With a range of yachts, luxury catamarans, superyachts and megayachts, Sailing Whitsundays has a vessel for any and every kind of occasion!
