Seeking Investors for Aquila Charter Boats, Sydney

Following strong demand for charters on Sydney Harbour last season, we are seeking investors for a new Aquila 44 and Aquila 36 to be managed and operated by our new charter boat business ‘Charter Boat Central’. We have very limited space so there is strictly available for one boat only of each model. We beleive that each model built to 1E survey will present a competitive and niche top end charter product for Sydney harbour, with healthy returns expected. With a falling AUD, the Sydney Tourism industry is in the front seat to benefit and we will be working with industry experts and agencies to ensure we reach specialised markets, while we also take care of all management services to provide a concierge service for the boat owner who also gains from the financial and tax benfits, including ability to claim back GST and…

Seabbatical – Planning your adventure

We plan to take our little Seawind 1000 catamaran ‘Seabbatical’ from Sydney Harbour, to Lady Musgrave Island. As I still have the demands of running a business and kids at school, this will be a mini seabbatical and so finding time is important but demanding. We will wait for the South Easterly trades to kick in which usually start around Easter time in Sydney. So in May we will send the boat north to Brisbane which is also as the cyclones start to slow down. Trade winds blow from the South East from around May through to October each year. These trades strengthen the further north you go while in NSW they are often aligned with low pressure fronts moving through from the south. These low pressure systems move further north during winter and further south during summer. During summer we are more affected…

Turning a dream in to reality – buying a bareboat 

‘Pirate Pete’ is the proud new owner of the brand new Seawind 1260, that Cumberland Charter Yachts will be welcoming in to the fleet in August this year. We asked him what his background story was in buying the Seawind 1260 and why he chose to have it chartered in the Whitsundays. Here is his story: Where it all began I guess my story began in 1986 when I was at university studying to be a PE teacher. A friend and I hitch hiked from Canberra to the Whitsundays for an adventure as we had never traveled that far north before. We had no money (hence the hitch hiking) and camped by the side of the road or people who gave us lifts offered to put us up for the night. We arrived in Airlie Beach and stayed in a backpackers for a week…

Seabbatical – The Real Deal

In an earlier issue of Nautilus Marine Magazine, I introduced the concept of a ‘Seabbatical’ as a means of enriching your life by taking time out earlier in life and bring about a cruising adventure to explore the islands and oceans of Australia, the Pacific or even the world. So I’ve decided to embark on my own Seabbatical journey and document the experience along the way. Turning 40 helped encourage me to pull my finger out and start putting some things into action and with my business continually growing and ratcheting up the stress levels like a frog in a frying pan, its time to see how I can get on the water too. I don’t intend to check out of life full time though and I don’t think you have to – its all about balance. All elements of my business have been…
