When you think of exploring on a yacht, your mind probably wanders to summer days spent on the deck sunbaking, sipping refreshing cocktails and splashing into lukewarm waters before heading into a balmy night under the stars at sea.
As November rolls around and the weather gets warmer in some areas across the globe, these magical locations are perfect for exploring this yacht season. Explore the iconic sights of Sydney and the Gold Coast in Australia and indulge in stunning tropical islets across the Caribbean. Plan your yacht charter with Ahoy Club this November yacht season across these beautiful destinations and enjoy all the features that a luxury yacht has to offer, whilst exploring paradise.
Yachting in Australia
Australia is a dream boating haven and November is the prime yacht season in this destination. During November, the weather in Australia is perfectly comfortable, without the searing heat of the summer months but the slight warmth of Spring. The local wildlife all come out to enjoy the weather as well, so you’ll have the chance to enjoy lots of animal experiences along the way and explore beautiful hidden coves and bays across the coastline.
These are the best locations across Australia to indulge in the privacy of your own luxury yacht and immerse yourself in the Spring sunshine.
One of the most iconic cities in Australia, Sydney, is warm and bursting with colour and life in November. It’s also home to Sydney Harbour, widely considered to be one of the most beautiful harbours in the world and filled to the brim with yachts during the warmer months. With Ahoy Club, you can join all the Spring fun and festivities in a luxury yacht like MISCHIEF or the lavish and modern CHAOS
