Since this maxi was converted into a Whitsunday Charter Maxi yacht in 2001, she runs a 2 day 2 night trip departing every Wednesday, Friday and Monday. Taking up to 28 guests, this trip is suited to people who want a Maxi-racing adventure cruise!
British Defender has turned heads since the day that the yacht was named by the Duke of Edinburgh on London’s Thames River. Today she is still turning heads after a 3500 man-hour refit in 2001.
The amount of headroom on this yacht adds to comfortable live-aboard quarters below deck. Single berths and double berths are available, there are also 3 showers and toilets and a dining/lounge area, all in an open plan layout. This yacht will take you to all the best destinations in the Whitsundays including the gorgeous Whitehaven Beach and most colourful snorkelling areas.
Included in your trip is all snorkeling gear and tuition, 3 meals per day, courtesy bus transfers from accommodation to the boat, bed linen and bath towels. Vegetarians can be catered for on request.
