Whether traveling alone, part of a group or with your family, this sailing experience suits those looking to experience the beaches, islands and reefs of the Whitsundays. There is space on board to relax on the deck, or take a seat in the shaded cockpit. For guests interested in helping to sail, the crew ask for volunteers to help hoist the sails, or you can just simply relax and soak up the atmosphere. Southern Cross is a racing legend, being built for the America's Cup as Australia's 4th Challenger, with sail number KA4 and beating the competing nations to win the right to race against the American's at Newport Rhode Island. Today, while Southern Cross still holds the spirit of a racing yacht, modifications have been made to make it comfortable for guest charters, with features such as a shaded cockpit, downstairs lounge area, dining table and guest bathroom.
