Are you dreaming of crystal clear waters, idyllic hideaways, and the most fun you can possibly have on a boat? Well, get your mates together and prepare yourself for a Whitsundays sailing adventure like no other, with Prosail.

You’ve seen the photos, you’ve heard the stories, you might have even posed for the gram at Hill Inlet lookout, but have you ever thought about getting the crew together and setting off on your very own yacht for three days of sun, sea and good vibes?

Sounds expensive, right? WRONG!

Did you know, if you get a group of 10 or more ocean-loving wanderers together, you could be looking at a ___ night private sailing experience with Prosail, complete with skipper, from just $220 per person, per night?

Seriously, who needs Croatia, when you’ve got the Whitsundays on your doorstep.

Charter your own private yacht

Booking a skippered yacht charter means the Whitsundays is your oyster.

There is no set itinerary on any of the private charters – you literally have the whole boat and crew to yourselves.

This means your trip can be totally customised to what you and your group want to see and do, how much time you have, the weather conditions and tides.

So whether it be for a birthday, bucks/hens, footy trip, or just getting a group of your best people together to go on vacay in one of the most beautiful places in the world – this experience allows you to design a trip that is exactly what you’ve always dreamed of.

Pretty sweet, isn’t it.

My experience with Prosail

Some friends and I had the pleasure of boarding Broomstick last year for an epic 3 day/2 night charter trip around the Whitsundays.

‘Broomy’ is a beautiful 76ft racing yacht that can pick up the pace with some wind in her sails. She has 20 individual beds, so the more, the merrier!

I would need about five hours to tell you everything about our charter, but in a nutshell, we had the best time, ever.

We sailed sideways, we explored beautiful reef, we waved to whales and we ate delicious food while marvelling at the stunning sunset.

We island-hopped, we sunbathed, we made the first footprints on a deserted island, we partied, we hiked, we practiced yoga, we sleepily watched the sunrise, we took photos and we made memories that will last a lifetime.

During the trip, I was continually in awe at the magical surroundings in every moment, both above and below the waves, and I will never forget the peace and serenity I felt on Broomstick.

The trip was relaxing, energising, adventurous and wild, all at the same time and while watching the sunrise over the glassy ripples with a tea in hand each morning, I truly felt at home.

I honestly could not recommend this experience more.
