Land ahoy! If you want to know the plushest way to explore the Whitsunday Islands we can only suggest cruising around on the Descarada, a 70ft motor yacht spread across three levels of spacious living. This yacht is capable of cruising from Australia to Canada nonstop: that should give you an idea of it’s power. Even though that is possible, we highly recommend sticking to the stunning Whitsundays. Whilst meandering in between the islands, get up close and personal with the sea life or simply have fun along the way on the Descarada’s high speed boat, inflatable rigid tender, two jet skis, two kayaks and a dive tank station.
DescaradA’s home port is the five star Able Point Marina in Airlie Beach, just over half way up the Queensland coast. Proserpine Airport is located only 25km from Airlie Beach and has daily flight connections from Sydney and Brisbane. The Descarada is ready to collect you where you like: be it Airlie beach or Hamilton Island.
This luxury on sea can sleep up to eight people at a time, making your tour on the Descarada an exclusive experience. The yacht is home to two ensuite double cabins, another double cabin and a twin berth bunk cabin which share a bathroom. All rooms on board are decorated with charming nautical theme and come with TV/DVD, Apple IPod sound dock, AM/FM radio and CD player (not that you’ll be making much use of them: we guarantee you’ll be spending most of your time up on deck).
Why we like it
This is the pinnacle of luxury when it comes to Whitsunday boating.
