Your day on Lady Enid
A true sailing experience through the Whitsunday Islands on board the luxury sports yacht Lady Enid. Departing from the Port of Airlie Marina, you are more than welcome to sit back and relax, or join in and learn how to hoist the sails.
Throughout the day, the attentive crew will be at your service, engaging in conversation about the history of Lady Enid and the Whitsunday Islands.
Barefoot luxury at its best, sailing to one of the world’s best beaches, Whitehaven Beach. Visiting Hill Inlet, swimming in the crystal clear waters of Whitehaven Beach, snorkelling pristine Whitsunday island reefs, beautiful memories will be made.
We welcome you as our guest, not just a passenger. With a maximum of only 24 guests, well below our capacity of 36, and three crew at your service, you will want for nothing more.
The gourmet meals are certainly a feature of this Whitsunday experience, including morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. As we sail back into the sunset to Airlie Beach a glass of sparkling and antipasto will be served.
Age of Elegance
Lady Enid recreates that classic age of yachting enjoyed in the 1960’s when sailing was more about elegance and style than corporate sponsorship and carbon fibre.
The experience of sailing on this beautiful and rare classic Australian yacht gives as much to the day as the destination of Whitehaven Beach itself. Become involved as much or as little as you like, help set sails, take a turn on the helm or lean back and relax with your favourite book, listen to music or simply daydream and be beguiled at the uninterrupted beauty of the Whitsunday Islands.
