Southern Cross Yachting

Yacht Fleet

The Southern Cross Yacht Fleet

Southern Cross offers the largest yachting fleet of skippered charter boats on Moreton Bay. Attached our rates for the various vessels as well as some basic specifications below. For corporate events, please contact us and we will deal with your request on an individual basis.

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.

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
