How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Yacht?

Planning your private yacht charter is an exciting activity, but it can be difficult to predict how much money you’ll need to pay. You can better prepare for your vacation and budget for your boat rental needs if you have an idea of how much a yacht charter in the Sydney harbour area will set you back.

Yacht charters may give you all that you need for a one-of-a-kind and spectacular vacation – whether your main purpose is to party like there’s no tomorrow, enjoy a romantic night out on your anniversary, see stunning landscapes, or simply relax on the water.

Sailing around the Sydney harbour area, the pristine blue water is surrounded by historical landmarks, white sandy beaches, sheltered coves, homes with incredible architecture, islands and plenty of mariners on various water-craft. The Harbour is also home to a wide variety of marine species, including dolphins, seals, seabirds, and even the rare shark or stingray. 

Of course, such a magnificent vacation on a luxury yacht doesn’t come cheap, so how much does it typically cost to hire a luxury yacht? The boat you choose, the facilities on board, the length of your trip, and where you plan to charter all play a role in determining the total cost of your yacht vacation.
