Private Charter Boats - Port Douglas

Port Douglas has many new marina berths accommodating luxurious super yachts and private charter boats that cruise the waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef with guests who come to see this iconic reef from all corners of the globe.

Port Douglas is very close to becoming the super yacht capital of Australia over the next 5 years with more and more new luxurious private charter boats arriving and calling Port Douglas their home port. New berthing facilities are being built and the ancillary services are underway to service this growing tourist market segment.          

This hip little beachside town is already world famous and on the bucket list of holiday destinations for the rich and famous with many rock stars, movie stars, princes, princesses, prime ministers and presidents all spending a laid back relaxing holiday and mingling with all the other Port Douglas loving folks.

There are all sorts of private charter boats available, from deep sea fishing boats to sunset sailing catamarans to the luxurious super yacht that can accommodate its own helicopter. We have scuba diving and expedition boats that can stay overnight on the Great Barrier Reef for as many days as the private charter guest requires, and we have boats perfect for intimate weddings on the Great Barrier Reef.

We also charter yachts in the Whitsunday Islands and the tip of Australia  


This is a motor yacht at the luxury end of the private charter boat spectrum that has recently made Port Douglas its home port. She is sophisticated and sleek in every respect and a stand out boat in the marina. She was purpose built to navigate the world’s oceans and stretches 115 feet or 35m and accommodates up to 12 guests on both day charters and overnight extended charters on the Great Barrier Reef.

From her home port she can be re-located to any destination as required by the charterer and places such as the Solomon Islands are just one of our clients favourite locations as it is very special not only for the cultural and wildlife aspect, but also for the brilliant scuba diving and snorkelling that these remote pristine reefs offer those lucky enough to experience them.

For guests who wish to see the iconic Great Barrier Reef there is no better departure point than Port Douglas as this is the closest you can get to the most pure body of water in the world which is home to over 1,500 species of reef fish, 411 types of hard corals, 30 species of marine mammals, six types of sea turtles, 134 species of rays and sharks. Scientists and academics say there are still more marine animals not yet seen or discovered on this iconic World Heritage listed reef system.
