Yacht Charters & Sailing Adventures

Yacht Charters and Sailing Adventures

Southern Cross offers the largest selection of skippered charter yachts on Moreton Bay. All our yachts are in QLD Transport survey and are comfortably and comprehensively equipped with everything you could require to make your holiday or corporate event special, including sun awnings, refrigeration and dinghies with outboard’s. All you need to bring is bedding and supplies (or we can arrange for these to be on board when you arrive).

Our area of operation is the partially smooth water limits of Moreton Bay covering over 200 square miles of protected waters and beautiful islands stretching from Tangalooma to the Gold Coast. Charters depart and return from our base at Manly Boat Harbour. The harbour is ideally located, boasting a large selection of restaurants, yacht clubs, a pub and shops all within easy walking distance in Manly Village and many beautiful anchorages less than 2 hours sailing time away. Manly is located only 25 minutes’ drive from the Brisbane CBD and 20 minutes from the domestic and international airports.

Skippered Charters

Just relax and come for a Sail…

For those who want to unwind, sit back and relax, we’ll do the sailing for you! Southern Cross Yachting can arrange a day out or holiday afloat to suit any budget. Be it a fully catered holiday on one of our luxury charter yachts or a fun day ‘racing around the cans’ we can arrange a sailing adventure that can be as strenuous or relaxing as you want it to be. Our fully qualified, friendly skippers know the Moreton Bay area better than most and will make your time afloat with us as enjoyable as possible.

Corporate and team building days

For corporate entertaining or as an incentive to your staff and customers, yachting is second to none. Southern Cross Yachting specialises in both organising corporate regattas and entertainment and conducting management training and team building courses. Whether your company is large or small we can design a cost-effective program to benefit your business.

Yachting, by its very nature creates the ideal environment to develop skills in management. It is the ultimate in team activities, demanding leadership, determination, commitment and a spirit of co-operation not available in other forms of adventure-based training. Yachting can be used not just as an activity to get your team working together but as an effective assessment for staff recruitment and promotion.

To successfully lead a yacht safely into port participants have passed tests rarely faced in management!

The training on board the yachts can be complemented with shore-based activities leading up to the event, and debriefing after. These programs are an ideal addition to sales conferences and seminars and can set the theme for major sales promotions or product launches.

Southern Cross Yachting can arrange these activities for groups of any size from a half day to 3 full day and nights. We can arrange everything from catering to hotel rooms and flights and the costs involved are much less than you might think!

A great place to learn all things about sailing, experienced Captains who are only to happy to answer any and all questions, a great experience,

We were lucky enough to spend a day with Jamie on Moreton bay and can’t speak highly enough about it. Three of us with varied previous experience of sailing joined with a father and son to share in a day of learning the ropes. The day was tailored to our varied needs and at all times we were able to ask questions and glean experience from Jamie’s wealth of knowledge. We would highly recommend signing up for a course if you’re interested in getting back on the water after a hiatus. Thanks so much guys! It was a priceless day!

We cannot express how wonderful our experience was with Jamie . He is very professional and patient in teaching us how to handle our new acquisition. Whether you are a seasoned sailor or a novice, it’s well worth spending time with a calm and knowledgeable instructor from Southern Cross. Thanks Jamie
