AUSTRALIS – a Boatbookings favourite from Monaco Yacht Show

Many boats stood out this year as a charterer’s dream, but our visit to AUSTRALIS was one that stood out from the crowd. Resting at anchor outside Port Hercule, she looked at home among even the largest of super yachts. This Oceanfast 48 was originally released in 2010, and following a thorough contemporary re-fit in January she was introduced to the Mediterranean charter market in Summer 2013. She’ll be spending this winter in SE Asia and will be available for charter in the Maldives and Thailand. AUSTRALIS1AUSTRALIS2

The re-fit has provided the boat with a wonderfully warm and inviting interior, with a comfortable but contemporary edge. She also has a whole new inventory of equipment, toys, linens and water-sports. Her all-new crew, including experienced and relaxed British captain Mark provide the perfect charter boat for families looking to relax whilst remaining active! The British chef lived and worked in Italy for 10 years meaning she provides authentic Mediterranean cuisine but can cater for all tastes. Perfect for winter charters in SE Asia and next summer in Mediterranean. AUSTRALIS3A4Contact us for more information.
