Here’s why you will love exploring the Whitsundays on board Samurai


Samurai is an awesome 2 day 1 night Maxi Yacht. She has participated in offshore Maxi Yacht races such as ‘Burns Philp South Pacific Maxi Championship’ in 1981 and the famous Sydney-Hobart Yacht race.

Samurai’s overnight maxi cruise offers excellent snorkelling opportunities on her voyage though the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, whilst visiting the famous Whitsunday Islands group, including Whitehaven Beach! You are more than welcome to help out with the sailing or simply sit back and enjoy the view of the Whitsundays.

Samurai is perfect for travellers on a budget and strict time schedule.
