And are worth every penny.

Australia is one of the world’s most desired destinations for holidays. The images of kangaroos, Uluru and Sydney Harbour Bridge are easily recognised but there is so much more to visiting Australia. Especially for those looking for truly unique and luxurious experiences. Chartering a yacht in Australia gives you direct access to not only this island country but some unrepeatable moments which will stay with you for a lifetime.
Sydney Harbour is a must-do on the most avid traveller yet there is nothing more spectacular than seeing it from a yacht during the Vivid festival. Vivid celebrates light, music and ideas as a way of illuminating the city and its inhabitants. It is vibrant, colourful and interactive. The iconic Sydney Opera House along with the whole city transforms under the varying light the full perspective of which can only be seen from the water. It is mesmerising and captivating watching the light dance across the water to your yacht. M/Y ONEWORLD, built by Gulf Craft, and her crew love showing guests their homeport during Vivid.
The Great Barrier Reef is not just one reef but comprises of 3,000 individual reefs. As the only living thing visible from space, the view from a helicopter is spectacular but nothing compares to the view from below. A kaleidoscope of tropical colours which move and shimmer as the waves gently sway, the fish dart in and out of the coral and the sun refracts through the warm shallow waters. Never has one charter location brought some much colour to your life. M/Y SILENTWORLD has the full complement of dive equipment, toys and tenders to fully explore this UNESCO World Heritage treasure.
