They are better known for their ferries, but SeaLink Travel Group has branched out into boutique luxury territory with its newly acquired super yacht ‘AUSPRO’.
AUSPRO has joined the Captain Cook Cruises fleet on Sydney Harbour offering a deluxe charter and private cruising vessel.
With her own full time captain and beautiful classic interior, AUSPRO is positioning itself in the high end corporate entertaining and 5-star private functions market.
Responding to the recent growth of the super yacht charter industry on Sydney Harbour, Jeff Ellison, CEO and managing director of SeaLink Travel Group, said this is a direction SeaLink is excited to take.
“This is part of our three-year growth strategy for Sydney Harbour,” he said. “We have listened to our key trade partners, and they have asked us to deliver a boutique, intimate experience for their five-star guests.”
Ellison says the new super yacht is the first of many new initiatives planned for SeaLink and Captain Cook Cruises in the coming months.
AUSPRO is a 30m motor yacht fitted with a Gyro Stabiliser for super smooth harbour sailing and has a range capable of offering extended overnight trips. The lavish super yacht can accommodate 45 guests for a VIP function or eight overnight guests and features two staterooms and two cabins.
The master stateroom has a queen size bed, private lounge and two ensuites, one with a spa bath. The other guest rooms accommodate a further six people, with a large queen size stateroom and two additional twin cabins, all with ensuites.
