The Whitsunday Holidays team live and work here. We’re not a call centre and we’re available 7 days a week. We actually have been on board the yachts we represent. Our Reservations Consultant Clare Rushby has personally sailed many bareboat yachts around The Whitsundays and been a guest on Jalun, Alani, and Lady Pamela.
We asked Clare to share her thoughts on the appeal of chartering a luxury yacht and sailing The Whitsundays. Here’s what she had to say about one of her favourite Whitsunday Holidays charter yachts, the luxury crewed Jalun:
*Since arriving in The Whitsundays last year Jalun has proven to be very popular. I spent 3 nights aboard Jalun and was seriously impressed. The captain/owner is extremely passionate about sailing and the Whitsundays, and even more importantly about giving the guests a good time and making sure they have the best experience possible. It is also great value for money – there are many free water sports on board and the 5 star food is delicious!”
With a Master Suite, VIP Stateroom and two Twin Cabins, all with their own private ensuite, and 100 foot over 3 levels, Lady Pamela by world-class ship builders Benetti-Azimut has the luxe appeal of interiors in the Italian style of Versace.
