Rent a Yacht in Australia

You can find yachts available to rent in Australia and in a multitude dream destinations around the world on the Nautal website. Flexible cancellation or changes up to 15 days before check-in is permitted on selected boats. Before making your booking, you can check the rental conditions of specific boats with their owners. To rent a yacht in Australia promises a luxurious ocean adventure, during which you can sail along numerous beaches and destinations of this country. 


What is the price of a charter yacht in Australia?

Renting a yacht in Australia costs from $7080 per day in low season, while in high season it costs from $10,620 per day. Yachts are generally rented with a captain and the most luxurious vessels even come with a crew. It is important that you check the mandatory and included extras with the owner. 


Is yacht rental possible in Australia with or without a skipper?

It is possible to rent a yacht in Australia both with and without a skipper but you should check out the laws regarding whether or not you need a boat license.  In all Australian states except for the Northern Territory there are strict laws governing whether or not you need a license, depending mostly on the maximum speed of the boat.  If you have a license though, you should be able to find a bareboat yacht charter in Australia without trouble and this will allow you almost complete freedom to cruise the Australian shores and waterways as you please.  If you don’t have a license, it would probably be safer and easier to rent the boat with a skipper, allowing for a relaxing holiday where you don’t have to worry about sailing the boat.

Which are the most popular ports in Australia?

This could actually prove to be a difficult decision as we offer yacht rentals almost anywhere! If you’re desperate to visit Sydney, you can either rent directly from there or choose from a few different nearby locations such as Cronulla. There are also plenty more yachts available to rent in New South Wales.

For those who wish to view the Great Barrier Reef up close on their own private yacht rental, there are a number of luxurious yacht rentals up for grabs in Queensland.  The Great Barrier reef is the perfect location for divers as it is home to a whole host of marine life including many species of sea snakes, sharks, whales and marine turtles, among others. Other popular boat yacht rental locations in this area include Abell Point Marina, Airlie Beach, Shute Harbour, and Long Island

For those wishing to cruise the Southern seas and maybe even visit Tasmania, an island state of Australia located about 240 km (150 miles) to the south of the mainland, Victoria is a good option. You can also rent from Loch Sport

If you want to explore the Indian Ocean and the West Coast, maybe yacht hire in Perth is the right option for you. 


Other Sailing Areas in Australia

Australia’s shimmering coastline is packed full of wonderful areas for sailing or mooring and exploring the mainland. Below is some information to help you pick the perfect place for your australian yacht charter. 


  • The Whitsundays

The Whitsundays is a classic holiday destination, popular with Australians and foreigners alike for many reasons, but one in particular. These islands are the perfect place to rent a yacht in Australia if you want to sail out to the Great Barrier Reef, a trip which takes between 70 and 90 minutes one way.  Whether you want a charter for just a couple of days or even an afternoon, this is the ultimate yacht rental location as booking times and dates are very flexible in this location. 


  • Moreton Bay

This beautiful bay is situated in Queensland, falling on the coast between Stradbroke Island, Moreton and mainland Australia. Being located near Brisbane, you have the option of flying to Brisbane and renting directly from there, or finding something a little closer if you prefer. This area is the ideal destination for both couples looking to get away and cruise the islands or for big families who want an action packed holiday, full of exciting and unique activities. The area is a fantastic place for divers, avid swimmers and sailors alike. 


  • Great Sandy Strait

Yet another option which is perfect for sailors looking to explore Australia’s waters is the Great Sandy Strait, found between Bundaberg and the Sunshine Coast. The transparent water is spectacular for a quick swim and the perfect place to rent a yacht in Australia. The rich variety of marine life here also adds to the once in a lifetime experience.  If you’re lucky, you can see dolphins, turtles, whales and dugongs! 


  • Port Jackson, Sydney

Keep it classic and combine your sailing holiday with a trip to the Opera House and many other top sights in Sydney. Port Jackson is lined by Sydney Harbour National Park but it is also within reach of other must-visit areas such as Bondi Beach. The stellar combo of wonderful weather and stunning scenery make for a fantastic stay on a yacht in Sydney.


What are the weather and sailing conditions like in Australia?

Australia has rather varied weather conditions depending on which part of the country you want to visit. From October to April, you can generally expect average temperatures of around 33°C/91°F. During the winter months (June-August) the weather is typically mild, with average daily July temperatures around 27°C/81°F (although they have been known to drop to 32°F/0°C in certain areas.. The average annual rainfall is 532 mm but sometimes no rain falls for months.  You should also beware of the cyclone season, which runs from November until April in Australia, even though cyclones rarely occur and never usually below 30°S.


When is the best time for yacht holidays in Australia?

This depends on what sort of holiday you want.  The high season for sailing in Australia runs from late November until March, even though this also overlaps with the Australian cyclone season, which runs from November until April.  Even though very few cyclones have actually occurred, you also have to remember that the Australian summer holidays occur during these months, leading to crowded beaches.  The crowds who flock to the seas to cool off can make sailing in the sea more tricky as although most beaches have designated areas for swimming and surfing, people have been known to ignore these guidelines.

If you want to avoid the crowds, maybe it would be a better idea to go during the Australian winter as even though the weather can be a little erratic, the temperatures are rarely extreme. During the winter months, you also have a better chance of finding good deals on boats.


How to get to Australia?

You can fly every day to the east-coast cities from Europe, North America, and Southeast Asia.  It is even possible these days to get a direct flight from the UK, something which has only been made a possibility recently. Fares can vary greatly depending on the season, but the highest prices are usually the two weeks either side of Christmas. Fares are usually lower during the “shoulder” seasons, which run from late February to May and mid-August to November, and the best prices can be found during low season, June to mid-August. Due to the distance from the most popular departure points, flying on weekends does not tend to make a difference to the price. Of course, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can take a ship trip from Asia, which may also give you a little time to explore another country on your way!
