How Much Is It To Hire A Luxury Yacht In The Whitsundays?

The cost of luxury yacht hire in the Whitsundays will vary depending on the vessel and the itinerary. Generally speaking, the bigger the yacht, the more you’ll pay. Some charters charge by the hour, and some charge by the day. Some offer multi-night packages for a lump sum, or they charge a weekly fee. But the more people you bring on the yacht, the more ways you can split the cost and actually make the price more affordable for everyone!

Many luxury yachts for hire in the Whitsundays can fit a range of people! You can hire a superyacht for a day and fit anywhere from 12 people to 36 people, sometimes more. Day yacht charters are perfect for large group celebrations such as weddings, parties, or corporate events. Overnight superyacht charters generally fit between 6 and 12 people, as cabin space is more limited. So prices can range from a few thousand dollars a day to much more than that depending on the experience you’re looking for.
