Here’s why you will love exploring the Whitsundays on board Mandrake
Mandrake was originally used as a sparring partner for Alan Bond’s America’s Cup winner Australia II and was sailed by some of Australia’s most talented yachtsmen. Originally she was built for ocean racing, she was a fierce competitor, in the mid 80’s.
Now you can follow in their footsteps, as you take the helm or hang out on the rail as you sail from one beautiful Whitsunday destination to another.
Take a 2 day, 2 night sailing cruise aboard the Mandrake with up to 14 guests and be swept off your feet sailing many of the Whitsunday Islands.
You will sail through the coral-fringed islands of the Whitsundays, snorkel the beautiful coral gardens of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, visit the stunning Whitehaven Beach, and many more iconic destinations! Smooth sailing is guaranteed, and you’ll sleep peacefully in the open plan accommodation.
