Explore the Southern Hemisphere on M/Y MYSTIC TIDE
Intrepid yacht charter guests, however, who choose Australia as their base from which to explore the magical region, are in for a treat and are rewarded with an experience unlike any other they have had on a yacht before. One need only consider the allure of the Great Barrier Reef – one of the seven natural wonders of the world – to appreciate the attraction of a yachting experience in Australia. An Australasia yacht charter offers guests the opportunity to spend days cruising Australia’s Far North Queensland coast, dropping anchor to discover a marvelous underwater world of awe-inspiring coral reefs and dazzling tropical fish.
Northern Queensland is also a gateway to the Pacific Islands, where a menu of freshly shucked coconuts awaits on islands such as Fiji. For a more French influence, Vanuatu, Tahiti and New Caledonia offer a slice of Europe in a tropical setting. Other destinations in the region, such as Papua New Guinea, truly represent the final frontier in South Pacific yacht charters. Natural beauty, lush rainforests, secluded bays and an intriguing culture lie in wait.
Fortunately, more and more yachts based in Australia are appearing on the charter market, including M/Y MYSTIC TIDE. Built in 2009 at Nordhavn, she is the ideal springboard from which to dive into an Australian yacht charter. With cruising speeds of 10 knots and a length of 26.21m, she is perfectly proportioned for an exploration of the vivid coral reefs and unspoilt islands of the region.
A complete refit in 2014 may have equipped M/Y MYSTIC TIDE with state-of-the-art equipment but a pervading sense of class still remains. Extensive outdoor areas for al fresco dining under the Southern Cross, and a bright, contemporary interior which features marble and polished wood finishing touches. She can accommodate eight guests in four stunning staterooms.
Arguably the yacht’s best feature, however, is the extensive selection of tenders and toys on board, including an underwater sea scooter, wake boards, sea kayak, kneeboard water skis, stand-up paddle board, fishing equipment, inflatables, and snorkelling equipment.
