12 guest superyacht to be based down under.

Ahoy Club has announced the addition of the largest ever commercial superyacht in Australia. In November 2019 the company will welcome the 54m Mischief to Australian shores, with the company citing growing demand for the superyacht charter market in the country.

The digital yacht charter platform recognised the significant amount of ultra-high net-worth Australian travellers that leave their shores to charter vessels abroad, without considering the option to charter locally due to the lack of superyachts set up for term charters.

Each year there is an escalating number of international guests visiting Australia, yet there were limited options to charter compared to other leading yachting regions such as the Mediterranean and Caribbean.

Exclusively available to charter through Ahoy Club, the arrival of Mischief will excite many well-seasoned charter clients who are familiar with the superyacht standards around the world. The vessel features six suites and has a capacity of 12 passengers. The upper deck has a bright and airy sky lounge, with the main salon featuring a large marble bar.

Ian Malouf, Managing Director of Ahoy Club explains: “We are very excited to bring Mischief to Australia so people can experience true seven-star service and a product that seasoned travellers are accustomed to internationally.”

Equipped with 13 permanent crew, the superyacht will be available for charter at a rate of AU$495,000 per week + expenses and also available for day charters from AU$15,000 per hour. As with all Ahoy Club’s charter vessels, Mischief will be available at a far reduced rate through Ahoy Club, with the platform offering a total savings of AU$64,350 + tax savings for Mischief.

“The savings we provide gives our charterers the opportunity to upgrade to larger vessels and experience better value,” says Head of Charter, Ellie Malouf.

Alongside Ahoy Club’s digital platform, the company has a large and global concierge team which provides fast, transparent, seven-star services. From expert charter advice to world-class itineraries and impossible restaurant bookings – Ahoy Club are involved with guests’ charter journey every step of the way.

Ahoy Club is a one-stop-shop for travel agents, offering a consistent, reliable and efficient service, as well as commissionable rates for every yacht charter booking. The company also works in partnership with travel advisors to design itineraries for every yacht charter booking for their clients.
