SV-MC Luxury Charter Boat | Port Douglas
SV-MC Port Douglas
A one day boat charter or even an overnight boat charter is the dream of most ocean loving people and there is no better place to think about chartering a sailing boat than on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
The Great Barrier Reef is known as the most pure body of water in the world and home to the largest species of marine life and the largest variety of hard and soft corals so if you are an underwater photographer, scuba diver or just a person who loves to snorkel about you will be constantly amazed at what you will see at every different location your sailing boat anchors at for the day or evening.
Spending the night moored out on the Great Barrier Reef is one of the most peaceful and awe inspiring things you can do as you see the colour of the sky light up as the sun sets in behind the tropical mountains and the sun rises up over the ocean in the morning.

Personalised Boat Charters
Day charters and overnight charter requirements are all individualised just like every guests is on this sailing boat so we ask that you ask the world of us and we will see what we can deliver. Each private charter is negotiated on each guests differing requirements and of course the locations that our sailing journey extends to.
***Suggested Itinerary - 1 Day Charter***
Destination: Low Isles
On one day charters we can accommodate 12 guests for a day of snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef and we recommend taking our guests out to Low Isles which is about 15 kilometres east of the Port Douglas boat harbour.
This islands original lighthouse was built in 1878 to help ships navigate the reef as this area was a well-known place for Beach De Mer fishermen and today the more modern lighthouse that takes pride of place here is still in operation but no longer manned by a light house-keeping family. The accommodation here is now used by scientists and marine biologists as they study the ocean and its environment. Guests can take a look around and visit the little museum that shows some artefacts from days gone by.
The snorkelling here is very nice with around 150 varieties of hard corals and 15 varieties of soft coral all of which attract differing marine animals. Low Isles is also very well known for its high population and sighting of sea turtles.
***Suggested Itinerary - Extended Charter***
Destination: Lizard Island form Port Douglas to Lizard Island with return flights back to Cairns airport.
Leaving the marina at around 7.30am guests can choose to overnight on the boat for the early morning departure and then head out to Mackay Reef or the Undine Sand Cay (dependant on the tides and weather) as the sun begins to set high in the sky.
After 3 hours we arrive at our destination in time for a swim and then a relaxing lunch on board the yacht before we sail off again for another 3 hours to our next destination Hope Island East where we will anchor and enjoy some snorkelling and our first evening on the ocean watching the sun set.
As you rise in the morning one of the first things most guests like to do before breakfast is enjoy a swim and a snorkel and then a nice walk around Hope Island East. Here you will see a variety of migratory sea birds that nest on this tropical island.
After a nice breakfast we set sail for Cooktown which will take us around 3 hours before we reach the Endeavour River where we will anchor and take you for a walk around this little historical township seeing all the places on interest and meeting some of the locals.
As we overnight in the river we will all enjoy a gourmet barbeque dinner and fresh salads as the sun sets in the east and then settle in for the evening under the stars with some soft back ground music to compliment the occasion.
Today we are going to visit an island that is very well known among the rich and famous as a tropical hideaway that they are sure to be away from the lenses of the paparazzi so they can relax and be themselves for at least a few days. This place is called Lizard Island and it has the most bluest of blue lagoons you may have ever seen and you will have the pleasure of swimming and snorkelling in this lagoon on an extended charter.
We leave Cooktown early as it will take us around 6-7 hours of blue water sailing to reach Lizard Island and Watsons Bay where we will anchor for the evening.
Over breakfast we discuss your preferred options for the day as some guests may be leaving the charter on a plane later in the afternoon or you may be on an extended charter of 5,6 or even 7 days.
Lizard Island offers several interesting island walks and its beauty will have your camera snapping away at every opportunity. The snorkelling here is superb and for today you can explore Watsons Bay and enjoy some time on the beautiful beach.
Your flight back to Cairns
The charter plane usually collects guests later in the afternoon and then you fly back to Cairns on a twin engine 6 seater high wing aircraft that offers spectacular views for your camera lens as the pilot tracks down along the coastline at around 1,000 feet giving you the most beautiful visual ending to your magical holiday on the Great Barrier Reef
We will have to book your plane transfer at the time of booking your private charter yacht and we will need to know all of the passenger weights at that time. Also please note your luggage is to be in manageable soft bags that can be easily stored on the boat and in the aircraft hold. This flight takes approximately 1 hour. Should you require overnight accommodation in Cairns before your departure flight please advise at the time of booking.
Day 5, 6, 7 or longer
If time is not an issue and you wish to explore Lizard Island more or other areas such as the world famous Cod Hole then we have a new itinerary that we can discuss with you as there are so many other regions to explore and if you have the time we have the places.
Certified Scuba Divers
You will need to pre-book to have a certified dive master lead you to see some of the most spectacular spots on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Just ensure you bring your dive card along with you. All equipment will be supplied on the charter at an extra cost. Cost is dependent on the locations and frequency of dives.
