Skipper yourself.

The term bareboating (aka bare-boating) simply means hiring one of our extraordinary sailing catamarans without a crew, a captain or any provisions. We’ll be teaching you to do all of this yourself. YES ! – You become the skipper. But don’t worry, we teach you everything you need to know to confidently set sail (or motor) around the glorious and Ancient Ngaro Sea Country of the wonderful Whitsunday Islands.





So how does bareboating work?

We provide a world class boat, you choose to become the skipper, you select your crew (family / friends), and you provision the vessel for the charter holiday and experience of a lifetime – In doing so you charter the boat under a Bare-Boat hire agreement and take our yachts out sailing yourself. An inspiring experience. Our Skipper Yourself Bare-Boating option, is our most popular.

Portland Roads – Sailing the Whitsundays offers the industry’s leading boats at the best price for those wanting to ‘do it themselves’ in paradise.

Bare-boating is perfect for the experienced sailor or repeat customers to the amazing Whitsundays. A full briefing is provided (and included in you charter pricing) to ensure you are at a competent level before departure. Additional training can be given if you are a bit rusty…

The briefing is so thorough that even novices can give this a go – Your briefing includes Navigation, Safety, Boat Handling, Water Safety, Boat Rules, Sailing, Motoring, Anchoring, Mooring and Emergency Safety Management Systems. After your briefing, if you are still not 100% confident, we offer additional sail training, which many of our novices pre-book to maximise their holiday enjoyment and safety.

Do I need a license to go bareboating?

No, you do not need a licence or experience. We are so excited and very committed to helping anyone new to sailing get out and onto the water. Adventure Still Lives. We are passionate – We are professional. In our caring hands, anyone can respectfully learn to handle any of our extraordinary sailing vessels. 

We will always be Fair and Friendly with you. And Fabulously Fascinated by our World Heritage Listed backyard; Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the Ancient Ngaro Waters and Islands of the Wonderful Whitsundays.

Bareboat vessels come fully equipped with everything required for a comfortable stay. You need to arrange your provisioning and pack your items such as sunscreen, swimming gear and cameras.

There are many private charter companies which can take up to 10 people out for a day among the islands, including stopping over at Whitehaven and Hill Inlet. From high-end catamarans to speed powerboats or sailboats where you can take the helm, there is a private charter in Whitsundays for all adventure seeking styles.

Questions Relating to Boat Hire from Airlie Beach

What is the weather like in airlie beach.

Airlie Beach is a sub-tropical environment which means fine, mild weather most of the year. There is a wet season over summer which only has occasional showers. Winter in Airlie Beach doesn’t feel like winter at all, with an average temperature of 23 degrees Celsius.

It’s possible to sail the Whitsundays at any time of year , with each season offering its unique attractions. 

Do I need a license to charter a boat in the Whitsundays without a skipper?

The need for a license will depend on the type of boat you want to hire and where you want to go. There are several considerations when it comes to a license.

  • If you want to take a self-drive boat out to the islands and Whitehaven Beach with Airlie Beach Boat Hire, you need one person to hold a valid boat license – National or International.
  • Unlicensed boats can be hired through Airlie Beach Boat Hire to fish and sightsee in designated areas. Please note that if you hire a day boat without a license, you can’t go to the islands.
  • If you hire a bareboat from a yacht charter company in the Whitsundays, you do not need a license or sailing qualifications.

Do I need sailing experience to go on a bareboat charter?

We do suggest that one person on your charter has some basic boating knowledge and we are required to have at least two crew members over the age of 18 on each vessel.

Our experienced staff will support you all the way, helping plan your itinerary, giving you a comprehensive briefing on how to operate your vessel and staying in regular contact over VHF radio.

If you are feeling unsure about your sailing experience or your ability to handle a boat, you can hire a sail guide for an hourly or daily rate to make sure you’re confident with skippering the boat yourself.

We also run the Whitsunday School of Sailing , which is an option for anyone wanting to brush up on their sailing knowledge or learn the basics before a charter.

How do I know what bareboat to hire?

The vessels in our fleet can accommodate up to 10 guests. You can choose a sailing yacht , a catamaran or a motor cruiser. The boat you hire will depend on your budget, availability and how many people you need to accommodate.  

To help you decide between a catamaran or sailing yacht, we’ve completed a list of pros and cons. Most families and large groups who charter in the Whitsundays opt for a catamaran.

Where can I go on a bareboat around the Whitsundays?

There are 74 Islands within the Whitsundays group with more than 40 anchorages. You’ll be able to visit secluded islands away from day crowds as well as all the Whitsunday highlights such as Whitehaven, the Hamilton Island marina and our top snorkelling sites.

Where you go will be determined by the weather and the things you want to do. We have created these suggested itineraries , however, please chat with your briefer to help customise a trip on the day you set sail.

Shute Harbour Boat Hire Airlie Beach

Whitsunday Rent a Yacht Base

Whitsunday Rent a Yacht is based 10 minutes from Airlie Beach, in Shute Harbour. Unlike other charter companies which operate from the public Coral Sea Marina, we have a private base and jetty, which gives exclusive access to our vessels and facilities.

Shute Harbour is worth a visit in its own right. The Conway Ranges National Park surrounds this tranquil haven, and the marine life is abundant here. When you hire a boat from Shute Harbour, you are instantly closer to the islands, with the nearest overnight anchorage less than an hour away. Comparatively, hiring a boat from Airlie Beach means that the commute out the islands is at least two hours longer.

If you are looking at Airlie Beach boat hire, then look no further than a bareboat charter with Whitsunday Rent a Yacht. We’re the longest operating, Australian owned bareboat charter company and hiring a boat with us means you get exclusive access from Shute Harbour.

Sailing Catamaran Bareboat Charter Boats

Experience the true beauty of the whitsunday islands on your own boat.

Well, not quite your own boat – but one you’ve chartered for your sole use – just you, your friends and family. Chartering your own ‘bareboat’ means hiring a vessel with no crew – so you’re in charge – but don’t worry, there is a detailed and comprehensive briefing beforehand (no boat licence required!) and the VHF radio on board connects you with the base.

The friendly bareboat team will help you plan an itinerary tailored to your requirements, as you carve out your own adventure amongst the islands.

Whether you are a couple, a group of friends or a family (larger vessels accommodate up to 10 guests) you can enjoy the freedom of choosing your own route, and filling your days with scuba diving, snorkelling and fishing. Or take a hike on one of the islands - mostly uninhabited National Parks - and discover untouched beaches with white sand and crystal clear waterfalls tumbling into cool pools.

You can charter a sailing yacht, a catamaran or a power cruiser, each with different benefits - see below for our tips – and you can go it alone or ask for a sail guide and hostess to accompany you. At night, you can gaze up at the endless expanse of starlit sky, sheltered from the breeze in an inlet or secluded bay, and contemplate the universe.

Catamarans are becoming more and more popular as charter boats. Hiring a catamaran offers the following advantages:

Extra space both above and below decks - larger catamarans can comfortably accommodate up to 10 people.

Catamarans provide a stable platform, with little to no heeling over when sailing. When at anchor, there is no rolling, guaranteeing a peaceful night’s sleep.

Catamarans have a much shallower draft than monohulls, which allows anchoring close to shore, and having two engines is a bonus - if one goes, you still have the other one!
