Cumberland Charter Yachts – A Unique Bareboat Experience.

The gentle lapping of water against your bedroom wall lulls you to sleep as you dream of the scenic views you took in for the day from your floating hotel room. Experience star-filled nights in tranquil anchorages, visit secluded bays, explore rainforest covered islands or sun yourself on world famous Whitehaven Beach. Snorkel the fringing coral of the Great Barrier Reef and come face to face with abundant marine life. Sunsets compete with each other trying to outdo the day before, and your only worry is which direction the wind is coming from.

Set your own pace and plan your own itinerary, confident of the backup and support only a radio call away from Cumberland Charter Yachts and our team of qualified professional mariners. Experience it all and create a lifetime of memories that will exceed your expectations on a bareboat charter in the Whitsundays with Cumberland Charter Yachts.

Boating licenses and qualifications are not a requirement for charter hire however, your experience and boating know how is important to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment on board.

The Power House - Views & More
Wonderful house, spatious, well equipped and magnificent view. Also perfect communication. It also has a garage right under the house in case one has a car. The only thing to pay attention to, is that the house is built on a steep hill. Is actually a short walk up, but if any of the guests has limited mobility and you have no car, one may have to take a taxi to get back home. We actually did it a couple times since one of us could not do that walk, and taxis are easy to book and cost only about 7- 10 AUD from the center or harbour to the house. For us was not an issue and we would love to stay there again!

Amazing Whitsundays Penthouse lifestyle at Reflections
A MUST STAY! This apartment is everything you could want plus more! Luxurious, spacious, modern and not to mention the view. It is beyond perfect. In a great location. All the facilities you could want and need. I found it very enjoyable and easy to book, check in, check out, ask questions etc with the hosts. Their response times to messages was fantastic. They helped us also with sorting our transfers which was hassle free. A definite 10/10. You won’t regret picking this place to stay whilst on your holiday.

Shutehaven Beach House
Breathtaking. Six stayed including my children (5,9) and father (80+). The house is a 15min drive from Airlie and walking distance from Shute Harbor (that has a coffee truck). The house has 270 degree views of water and several balconies, providing private areas. The pool is a great size but ensure you have floaties for young ones as it is deep. The house is very clean and tastefully furnished. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals. Great water pressure in the harbor. All round a truly special and memorable week. thank you!

Executive Whitsunday Penthouse @ 40 Reflections
We had an absolute amazing time at Reflections apartment, and the whole stay was made so much easier with the fantastic communication between the hosts Chris & Ali from the moment we booked till the day we checked out! The apartment had everything and kept our whole family entertained, from the swimming pool, dartboard and pool table. The view was stunning, every time you walked up the stairs to the balcony it literally took your breath away. Will definitely be back for sure! 🙂

It was a pleasure to stay here. The apartment is very clean and as shown in the photos. The views from the balcony, main bedroom and living room are magnificent. We found it convenient having the option to dine at the restaurant on site, and the food was quite good. The property managers were very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.
