How much to charter a superyacht for a day?

Most superyacht day charters in the Whitsundays cost around $6,000 - $8,000 for 4-6 hours. 8 hours charters tend to cost about $10,000 - $18,000. Smaller yachts like MV Alfie have the cheapest prices. The larger, more extravagant yachts that fit over 30 people, like Texas T, have higher prices. 

Here are some examples of superyacht day charter costs in the Whitsundays:

  • MV Alfie - 12 guests - $5,500 for 6 hours
  • La Mar - 12 guests - $6,534 for 4 hours, $8,580 for 6 hours
  • Nisi - 15 guests - $6,600 for 4 hours, $8,580 for 6 hours, $9,900 for 8 hours 
  • Aurora - 24 guests - $8,800 for 4 hours, $13,200 for 6 hours, $17,600 for 8 hours 
  • Texas T - 36 guests - $3,200 for a 2-hour sunset cruise, $5,400 for 3 hours, $14,800 for 8 hours 

Superyacht day charters are the most affordable option when it comes to luxury boat hire. Because you're only using the yacht for 4-8 hours and you aren't utilising any overnight cabins, the cost is slightly cheaper than an overnight charter. However, you have less time to experience the wonders of the Whitsundays!

Day charters are ideal for short celebrations, quick cruises to Whitehaven Beach, or intimate days out on the water with amazing food and stunning views. Most day charters run for 4, 6, or 8 hours, with sunset cruises being a nice option as well.

How much to charter a superyacht for 3 days?

Chartering a superyacht for 3 days costs around $30,000 - $50,000 on average. But there are some vessels that fall outside that range! For example, MV Alfie is a small luxury yacht that only sleeps 6 guests. You can charter this one for $18,000 for 3 nights. Or you can opt for the mighty POPS Superyacht which costs a whopping $90,000 for 3 nights but provides the ultimate and most extravagant experience. 

Here are some examples of 3-night superyacht charter costs in the Whitsundays:

  • MV Alfie - 6 guests - $18,000 for 3 nights
  • La Mar - 6 guests - $35,970 for 3 nights

  • Aurora - 8 guests - $40,000 for 3 nights
  • Pleiades II - 10 guests - $55,000 for 3 nights
  • Oneworld - 12 guests - $52,000 for 3 nights
  • POPS - 12 guests - $90,000 for 3 nights

Most superyachts only fit around 6-12 guests on overnight charters because cabin space is limited. But every yacht is equipped with glorious private cabins, many with ensuites, entertainment, and water views. Overnight charters are like staying in a 5-star hotel right on the water!
