That is to say, more and more clients choose not to purchase the yachts, but to charter yachts for 1-3 days even one week.


III. Current Situation of Yachts

Meanwhile, there are about 12 catamarans and 5 tourism and sightseeing and party boats. The rental unit price of luxury yachts is A$600-2,750/hour.

How to Rent Yachts in Gold Coast

Since there are mainly two yacht types for rental in Gold Coast, you should firstly determine whether you need to rent a luxury yacht or a catamaran. The catamaran has the high cost performance and is applicable for water activity, but its disadvantage is not very luxurious. The advantage of luxury yacht is applicable for the high-grade parties such as birthday and proposal, but its disadvantage is high rental cost. Generally the catamaran allows BYO foods and wine for free, the total cost is equal to the yacht rental fee (rental unit price*hour number), so the price is affordable and friendly. For rental of a luxury yacht, you should firstly screen the applicable yacht according to own budget, and then calculate the accurate rental cost.


Total price =yacht rental fee (rental unit price*hour number)+BYO foods and wine fee+foods and wine fee+fees of other optional items. The quay fee and waiter fee are not charged in Gold Coast, which are included in the rental unit price. The most friendly point is that, the yachts in Gold Coast do not have the price differentiation of high season and off season.


For example, if a client plans to hold a yacht birthday party in November, and hopes to invite 30 friends to attend. The client has a total budget of A$2,000, and wants to adopt BYO foods and wine. Since the rental unit price of most luxury yachts is more than A$1,000/hour, the selection of luxury yachts can be eliminated basically. Moreover, the luxury yachts usually need the client to select the set menu of foods and wine provided by the luxury yachts, so the client’s budget cannot be met. Therefore, the client can rent the catamaran at the unit price of A$600/hour for 3 hours, and adopt BYO foods and wine for free. Therefore, the total price is A$600*3=1,800.
