FAST - Maxi's are Fast, they are the Formula 1 of yachts. Maxi's can sail faster than other vessels can go when under motor. So our guests will get to see more of the Whitsundays and leave the other boats in their wake! As long as the winds are blowing ......
SPACE - Maxi's are big yachts, 22 to 24 metres in length, 6 to 7 metres wide... two London buses end to end will fit on the deck. There is plenty of space for every guest to lay out a towel. Plus Maxi's are spacious downstairs, over 2.5m headroom.
SAFE - Our Maxi's are designed and built to race around the world including the Southern Ocean, so sailing the relatively protected waters of the Whitsundays is a walk in the park. Coupled with our weekly maintenance program, Maxi's are SAFE!
WHITEHAVEN BEACH - If we experience stronger winds, say 20 to 25 knots a Maxi will really come alive and sail through to get to Whitehaven Beach when other yachts cannot make it around the exposed North East side of Whitsunday Island. This is where the SIZE of a Maxi and the POWER of sail cannot be beaten!
Guests are welcome to get involved and help the crew, have a turn at the wheel, sets the sails, and pump on the coffee grinders (found on Maxi's) PS. If you don't want to get involved, it is fine to just relax on the large deck
