Beluga is an explorer-style motor yacht, custom-built by Moonen in 2006 and last refitted in 2017. She was built as a go-anywhere yacht with 4,000nm range, a wide beam, abundant relaxing space, and elegant design.

With modern wood styling throughout, Beluga’s interior layout sleeps up to 10 guests in 5 staterooms, including a master suite, 2 double cabins (with splitting wall which creates 2 single beds in each cabin), 2 twin cabins and 2 pullman beds.

Beluga offers an abundance of onboard space, including four impressive areas and multiple decks providing privacy, as well as numerous dining and lounging options. Her expansive sundeck features a jacuzzi fitting up to four people at once while soaking up outdoor views, whilst a secret spot is hidden up the ‘monkey island’, also known as the ‘Grand Crow’s Nest’—the ideal place for whale watching, reef spotting, or enjoying a champagne sunset.

The experienced team of 6 crew on-board is led by Australian Captain Ross. He and his crew will ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience with insightful local knowledge.

When not out on tour, Beluga is moored at tropical Port Douglas, providing perfect access to the Great Barrier Reef. Beluga spends most of the time touring throughout the East Coast of Australia, from as north at Cape York to as south as the Whitsundays.

Beluga’s space and flexibility make it the perfect charter option for all kinds of guests wanting to explore the Great Barrier Reef and beyond. Whilst on board, guests can indulge in the luxurious amenities available aboard the vessel, to a range of aquatic activities on Australia’s East Coast.

Extended Private Charters

Beluga sleeps up to ten guests across five impressive rooms, with configuration flexibility to suit all kinds of travellers, from groups of couples to extended families.

Holiday Charter

Beluga’s elegant and comfortable design makes it perfect for an intimate and extended holiday in remote luxury. Using Beluga as a floating five-star hotel, guests can soak up the tropical ambience of one of the world’s most dynamic coral landscapes with leisurely snorkelling and diving, while enjoying canapés, sunshine, and unhurried luxury onboard.

Research Charters

Beluga has been used for exploration of the Pacific Ocean, with an extensive résumé of research charters. Beluga has been featured in documentaries highlighting the importance of ocean conservation, and the vessel and its crew are proud participants of the Great Barrier Reef Census, a project by Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Guests are welcome to participate in these ventures and contribute to research and management for this exceptionally beautiful and fragile area.

Animal research and conservation is an extensive part of Beluga’s repertoire. Beluga offers Minke Whale expeditions as they travel through the Reef in the winter between June and July—encounters with these curious, eight-metre gentle giants are unforgettable and come teamed with a professional diver for snorkelling and diving encounters. Beluga also has previous experience visiting villages and turtle nurseries in Papua New Guinea.

Fishing Charter

Beluga is frequently chartered for high-end fishing experiences. Beluga is a popular choice for mother-shipping charters seeking marlin and other game fish, available during season from September to November, as well as other tailored charters.
