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.

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.

For help, advice and all the latest business plans and pricing, call Stewart Key at Bavaria Charter Australia on 07 4948 0206 or email skey@bavariayachts.com.au

Another breaching whale lands on boat off South Africa
3 men were injured this week when a breaching whale leaped out of the sea and crashed onto their inflatable boat. Apart from not sailing during the migration season, an underwater collision with a whale is one of those unavoidable incidents that any sailor dreads; but a whale that breaches on top of your boat is too terrible to imagine. This is the second such incident to occur in South Africa in as many years.
