Broomstick has a huge deck space to socialise and enjoy the sun, an outdoor shower with plenty of fresh water to wash off the salt and sand after snorkelling the beautiful reefs and exploring Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet. Get involved in the sailing, pulling ropes and winding winches, or sit with your legs hanging over the edge and take in the ride. Skippered by a young Aussie local who knows how to ensure passengers have fun and get to know each other, Broomstick is one of our favourite maxis.

Broomstick was built in South Africa to win the Cape Town to Rio race. From there she went on to compete in many famous events including the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Broomstick finished racing in 2000 and in 2001 was converted for charter tours.

ITINERARY

This Whitsundays sailing adventure gives you the time to explore the islands, including time to relax at the magnificent Whitehaven Beach, walk to famous Hill Inlet Lookout and experience two snorkelling stops on the fringing coral reefs which extend right from the edge of the islands.

An optional scuba dive is available with a rendezvous dive boat, Tornado Dive, which is purpose built to do introductory or certified scuba dives.

This itinerary will cover more than 100kms around the islands and is achieved in 2 days and 2 nights due to the sailing performance and ability of the maxi yacht to sail faster than other charter yachts can go. Not only will you visit the famous Whitehaven Beach, but you will also get to the northern end of the Whitsundays, where the best fringing coral reefs in the Whitsundays are found around Hayman Island, Langford Reef and Mantaray Bay.

For guests who want to be involved, help the crew set the sails, have a turn on the wheel, and get some amazing sailing photos.
