By the Cabin

Relax and Leave The Sailing To The Experts!

Over the past few years, demand for what are called Stateroom Charters in the U.S., and By The Cabin Charters in Europe have become enormously popular. Whichever name you choose (in Australia we prefer ‘By the Cabin’), this option could be the ideal sailing vacation for people who don’t yet have the skills to bare boat charter, who simply want to relax, or others who want to experience life aboard a crewed luxury yacht, but can’t justify the cost. Sound like it could be for you? Here is how it works. You rent a cabin, just as you would on a cruise ship. But Instead of a thousand new best friends, you’ll be among just a handful, while the professional crew manages all aspects of the yacht, and a chef prepares all the meals. These charters are both memorable and affordable.

Imagine cruising the stunning Whitsundays, leaving the work to the professionals, while you just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds.

On our listed crewed yachts, you will experience a unique vacation and explore pristine beaches, reefs teeming with sea life, as well as splendid anchorages and bays.

Clare is our experienced Charter Consultant. She has lived on Hamilton Island and the Whitsundays for many years. After doing a lot of travelling and sailing around the world, the Whitsundays is still her favourite holiday destination!  She loves sailing in the Whitsundays and can help you plan the sailing holiday to suit your needs (and dreams!). Contact Clare 7 days per week to discuss your Whitsunday Sailing adventure.
