As Australia’s longest-established skipper-yourself company, we have been matching vessels with charterers for more than three decades. Our charter management structure, commitment to safety and customer service standards are second to none.
The only facility of its kind in the Whitsundays, our private jetty is at Shute Harbour, a sheltered and tranquil harbour - the safest in the region. We offer guests a unique pre-charter sleep-aboard, ample parking and the privacy to load and unload vessels at their own pace.
As the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands, the WRAY base is just one hour’s sailing time from the nearest island. From our jetty, we can easily deliver your vessel to any Whitsundays marina and despatch chase boats to restock or clean vessels mid-charter.
Most of our key people have been part of the business for more than five years and know the industry inside out. The WRAY management team - which is supported by energetic reservations and marketing teams - is represented by experienced industry personnel who put investors’ interests first.
Our boatyard and haul-out facilities are equipped to handle all vessel maintenance on-site. Services include vessel maintenance and annual slipping. Commercial skippers are available to help boat owners manoeuvre and become familiar with their boats and the area.
With mechanics and shipwrights on site every day of the year, there’s no need to call in contractors. We can prepare vessels for charter with just 48 hours’ notice and pride ourselves on meticulously maintaining vessels in our care.
We have long-established trade relationships, innovative marketing ideas and a proven sales record. We have close ties with Australian and international boat builders and offer an impressive fleet – with a focus on brands renowned for safety and user-friendly features.
Our base is one of Australia's best and ensures our charterers’ pre and post charter experience is enjoyable. We have an air-conditioned reception, gift shop and lounge, briefing room, car parking, toilet and shower facilities, sundeck, slipway, jetty, boatyard and more.
We use our knowledge of the Australian charter boat market to achieve the best returns. There are considerable and significant tax benefits associated with vessel ownership. We recommend you speak to your financial planner or investment advisor to maximise your returns.
We have the expertise to turn your sailing passion into income. Your vessel will join an impressive fleet marketed for year-round charter. We ensure your investment is carefree – and you spend up to 21 days a year sailing the Whitsundays in your vessel. Read our Charter Investment brochure (Download PDF).
