As the global financial wobble continues to play out on stock markets around the world and intrude into family lounge rooms each night on the news, one sector of Australian business is sailing ahead, the bareboat charter industry.
Bavaria sailing in the Whitsundays
Never has there been a better time to charter a yacht. No expensive overseas currencies to worry about. The food and language is familiar. Travel time and airfare costs are modest in comparison to heading overseas.
“The key ingredient in today’s holiday is convenience. From a mid afternoon departure from Brisbane, we can have a family on the water in the Marina in three hours, boat fully stocked and ready to set sail around the islands before lunch the next day.” says Stewart Key of Bavaria Charter Australia. “The first night is exciting, the second serine usually in a coral fringed bay, surrounded by turtles and phosphorescence, having a BBQ under the stars.”
Australians are visiting charter yacht destinations for the serenity of blue seas, tree lined islands and warm balmy nights. In the current climate, it makes sense to escape and go sailing.
A review of the market amongst charter operators shows that demand is holding with only the time between booking and arrival getting shorter. Prices are solid as are returns.
So if you have been thinking of buying a yacht and putting her in charter then perhaps now is the time to act. Bavaria Yachts own program Bavaria Charter Australia is designed to help you select the right yacht in the right charter fleet and get the right return on your lifestyle investment.
