There is a permanent hard roof and removable clears, making it perfect for all weather conditions. It is very comfortable inside with seating around a large central table, barbecue and modern bathroom facilities.
Front and rear boarding ladders for easy beach and water access
We often stop at Wave Break Island in Gold Coast – our slice of paradise. A mecca for all types of marine based activity where you will find fishermen dropping in a line, divers and snorkelers checking out the marine-life and recreational boaties dropping anchor or pulling up on the beach for swimming, BBQs or just for a walk along the white sandy beaches. Wave Break Island is known for its sparkling clear waters, particularly at high tide. Being located so close to the Gold Coast Seaway, there is a regular flow of clean, fresh ocean water in this area. This makes it our favourite swimming spot to treat our guests to, you can’t resist diving in!
You may get the opportunity to see wildlife animals and marine life at Wave Break Island and in the Broadwater. Keep an eye out for friendly bottle nose dolphins, many small colourful fish, manta rays, turtles, sea eagles and much more. If you’re a keen scuba diver or want to have a snorkel, there is a dive site known for its abundance in fish at the northern rock wall. It’s nice and protected from the ocean swells and you can see up to 50 different species of fish.
When visiting Wave Break Island there’s a good chance you will have the Island all to yourself, unless you’re visiting on the most popular days which are weekends, Easter, New Year’s Day and Australia day. On Australia Day and New Year’s Day, Wave Break Island becomes a magnet for revellers and something of a party scene. Boats visiting will often claim their spot a few days before these popular events begin. Hiring a boat to take you to Wave Break Island on these days when water traffic is expected to be high can make for a more enjoyable and stress-free experience.
With a longer charter, you will have time for a snorkel or enjoy a relaxing lunch at Wave Break Island. Otherwise, you can visit South Stradbroke.
For evening cruises, we usually recommend sailing north to watch the sunset and returning to the southern part of the Broadwater to see the city lights after dark which are just beautiful.
Raft Up Gold Coast Yacht Parties
Raft Up yacht parties can cater from 40 to 90 people on 2 to 4 sailing catamarans.
Get the crew together for the event of a lifetime. Whether you are organising a corporate event, a wedding or a get together with a big group of friends, if you want your next event to be truly special you should talk to us about a Raft Up yacht party. Nothing says ‘WOW’ more than a fleet of beautiful catamarans sailing together in one of the most pristine locations in Australia.
Throw in a heap of inflatables, crystal clear blue waters, golden sandy beaches, awesome tunes and beach games, and you have an insta-worthy event that everyone will want to be a part of. Set sail in convoy to a secret beach location for a couple of hours of fun in the sun, sea and sand. Bring your group together with some team building activities or party the afternoon away.
When it comes to creating a special day there really is ‘no limit’ to what can be achieved. Private chefs and wait staff, DJ’s, watersports activities (parasailing, jetboats etc), drones and professional photographers, the list goes on.
You are welcome to BYO everything or take advantage of our extensive catering options from some of the Gold Coast’s best caterers and private chefs.
A raft up party can be anything you want it to be. We would love to help make your boat party dreams a reality!
Wedding /Engagement / Anniversary Cruises
Our beautiful Spirit of Gwonda is the ideal vessel for couple events due to its intimate design, and offers the relaxation of sailing in complete comfort. The trampoline-style fore deck is a favourite spot for snuggling and gives an immersive sailing experience with 360 degree views of the Gold Coast’s stunning waterways.
If you are celebrating a wedding anniversary, birthday, Valentines Day or looking to impress a special date, trust us when we say, there is honestly nothing more romantic than setting sail on your own private yacht. Imagine lazing back in the sunshine sipping on champagne, waves lapping beneath you, the sounds of your favourite tunes filling the air as the wind fills the sails. Sounds blissful right? There are serious brownie points up for grabs with this date idea and as a bonus you get to have fun too!
A scattering of ashes at sea is often chosen by families whose dearly departed had a love of the water or boating. As we too share this love, we will do everything within our power to make the experience memorable for all guests who attend a memorial service on board our vessels. We often find that this time spent on board the boat brings the family together in a special way to celebrate the life of their lost loved one. There is something about being out on the water, surrounded by the beauty of nature that has a very profound meaning at this emotional time and we are honoured to be able to share this with the family.
If you wish to scatter the ashes of your loved one in the pristine waters of the Gold Coast Broadwater we are able to offer a memorial charter aboard one of our comfortable sailing catamarans for groups from 1 – 30 guests.
Our vessel offers the ideal platform for safely dispersing the ashes from the rear boarding steps (which sit very close to water level whilst remaining safe and stable). Our warm and respectful crew will sail the vessel to your preferred location (often the Seaway or nearby a favourite Island) before dropping anchor and recording the GPS coordinates of the location carefully. The spacious and wide vessels are intimate in design though spacious enough to be suitable for families and groups. We sail in the calm protected waters of the Gold Coast Broadwater meaning a comfortable sailing experience for all on board. We can assist with catering and beverages or you are also most welcome to BYO food and drinks on board.
