Tell us what the biggest launch is on your current yacht fleet?

The biggest yacht in our fleet would be AIX, the newest charter yacht in Australia. 44 m built by San Lorenzo and launched this year. She can accommodate up to 10 guests overnight.

Where is the most amazing destination the yacht life travels its clients to?

The most amazing destination would have to be The Mediterranean. Since post covid, we have had much more Australian interest in travelling to Europe for that beautiful Mediterranean sun. It’s an amazing destination where you can travel to 2- 3 countries in 7 days. This year, the Monaco Grand Prix will be a big hit from the 25th – the 28th of May 2023.

How do you best curate the super yacht experiences to cater to a market that looks for the best-of-the-best service?

Our expertise and knowledge of the industry. We live and breathe it and are so passionate about what we do.

Can you provide transport by air to any yachts on your fleet?

We offer a full concierge service providing helicopters, seaplanes, private jets, and luxury car transfers. Making it more accessible and managed by just one company is a customer convenience.

What has the biggest party you have thrown in the water?

The biggest party we have thrown on the water would have to be AQUA RUGBY. Three days, five superyachts each day with up to 70 – 100 guests on each yacht for 4- 6 hours. Something truly magical to bring superyachts and to be a part of the first-ever Aqua Rugby experience.

Tell us more about the collaboration with Yacht life and Aqua Rugby.

We are honoured to be the yacht partner for Aqua Rugby for Two years in a row. We provide the yachts for this amazing event every November in Manly, Sydney. It is a great way to showcase what we can offer and do while watching the rugby on a floating pontoon and networking with like-minded people. Such a great event to be a part of.

Share your story about Yacht Life’s most recent trip to Monaco.

We recently made a 6-week trip to be a part of the Monaco Yacht show, which was an amazing experience. As our Australian client base is now wanting to look at the Mediterranean as a charter destination, we thought it would be beneficial to travel over and view some of the charter yachts available for our clients. Viewing the yachts in person and meeting the captain and crew is always great. This is our point of difference with our eye for detail when selecting the right yacht for our client. Our favourite yacht was an 88m yacht called Project X, which charters for around US $1,100,000 per week for up to 12 guests Built by Golden Yachts.
