Ocean Alliance is the appointed MYBA Charter Central Agent for BELUGA.
BELUGA is an explorer-style motor yacht, custom-built by Moonen in 2006 and last refitted 2011. She was built as a go-anywhere yacht with 4,000 nm range, a robust elegant style, a wide beam, and therefore unusually large volume for her length. She is currently based in Port Douglas, the perfect getaway to the Great Barrier Reef experiences (55minutes drive North of Cairns International Airport).
BELUGA’s interior layout sleeps up to 10 guests in 5 staterooms, including a master suite, 2 double cabins (with splitting wall which creates 2 single beds in each cabin), 2 twin cabins and 2 pull-man beds. She carries up to 7 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience. Timeless styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating feature throughout her living areas to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere.
Did you know the North of the Great Barrier Reef is the only place on Earth where you can swim with dwarf minke whales? Each year, during the months of June and July, the Minke whales enter their winter playground in Australia. This experience is one of the planet’s most captivating and memorable encounters with Mother Nature.
