Sweet Escape Yacht Charters is a locally owned business that operates out of the Great Sandy Strait Marina in the beautiful Hervey Bay on Queensland’s Fraser Coast. Sweet Escape offer you a unique way to explore the world heritage listed Fraser Island waters, and on extended charters, the Southern Great Barrier Reef, in comfort at your own pace! Our cruising area encompasses an area much more vast than Whitsunday bareboat charters and much more sheltered and serene than many rent-a-yacht destinations around the world.
Our mission is to provide our charterers with friendly, reliable service and world-class yacht holidays in one of the world’s most idyllic maritime destinations. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to explore this magical part of the world, taking away memories that last a lifetime!
Many of visitors have chartered vessels from charter companies around the world, including the popular Whitsunday yacht charters, and they all agree, the incomparable experience afforded by Sweet Escape, the peaceful solitude of the destination, the natural beauty of the waterways, the superior vessels in our fleet and the experienced professionalism of our staff, make us their first choice for charter holidays.
Come absorb the beauty of nature and the freedom that comes with chartering your own private yacht and explore the pristine coastline of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef.
Depart from the World Heritage listed Fraser Coast and the world’s first Whale Heritage site, Hervey Bay.
Having grown up in the area and previously operated other yacht charter businesses, partners Rohan and Keira have extensive knowledge of the area, the vessels, and offer a friendly, professional service.
Operations Manager, Rohan, is the friendly face down at the marina, who ensures your holiday goes off without a hitch. Rohan looks after the repairs and upkeep of the vessels and conducts all the briefings on the boats operations, safety procedures, and navigating the area to ensure your holiday with us is safe and memorable. A keen boating enthusiast, Rohan loves to get out on the water as much as possible whether its sailing, fishing, diving or fixing boats- any excuse will do! He will gladly chat for hours to you about your holiday with us and any other experiences on the water you wish to share.
Assistant Operations and Reservations Manager, Keira BBus (Marketing), looks after all the reservations and also manages the business marketing, marina staff and administration for Sweet Escape. Having grown up working in her family’s previous yacht hire business, Keira has been looking after charterers for over 9 years. Keira goes above and beyond to make your experience with Sweet Escape comfortable, safe, enjoyable and memorable, always on hand to answer any question that you might have. Keira has a real sense of adventure, often travelling whenever she gets the chance, and is conscious about preserving that natural wonders of this world so that everyone gets the opportunity to explore.
Our idea of a perfect holiday is sailing on a beautiful boat, in a magical location with nothing but the sound of our favourite music, a good glass of wine and perhaps the zing of the fishing line interrupting the serenity. Rohan and Keira, thank you for delivering everything we could have imagined.
