Bareboat Yacht Charters

What is a bareboat charter?

So, what is a bareboat charter? Don’t be fooled by the word bare, because there’s a lot included on our charters. Bareboat charters simply refer to the hire of a boat or vessel without a skipper on board. This means you can truly explore Fraser Island and all its hidden gems at your own pace without a set itinerary. During a bareboat charter you will act as the boat crew for the duration of the trip.

Although you’ll be crew, it isn’t necessary for you to be a qualified skipper or have any boat qualifications. Don’t be afraid if you have no experience, you’ll be provided with a briefing from a fully qualified commercial skipper to make sure you know the ins and outs of the vessel and navigating our beautiful waters before you set sail. Our skipper will drive the vessel out of the marina for you, where you will then be free to spend a holiday on the water in style!
