— Alani Whitsundays


“To create unique, lasting memories and experiences in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef by delivering exceptional services for every client and every charter. Whilst we continue to fulfil the desire of protecting the magic that the Great Barrier Reef holds. We want to continue to expand our capabilities to meet the demands of the increasing local and international markets”.


Alani began operating luxury yacht charters in late 2006, by entrepreneur and owner Mr. Andy Hoare. The Yacht chartered between Sydney and Hamilton before being awarded with the contract of ‘Luxury Charter Vessel’ for Hamilton Island from 2008 onwards. Since then, Alani has been based on Hamilton Island, all year round and the only Superyacht to offer this calibre of charter in the Whitsundays.

In 2016, Mr Hoare upgraded the structure of the charter business by employing a business manager to integrate the yacht and house experiences. The new structure created a comprehensive yacht and property management, sales, marketing and staff management role. This structure is unique, enabling a more professional management approach to charter bookings and customer service while allowing the Captain to focus on all engineering aspects, complete vessel maintenance, commercial activity and safety requirements as well as the maintain high standard of yacht presentation at all times.

A primary aspect of the new structure is the transition from just general chartering, to more corporate/business- based events. Alani is able to offer a diversity of events incorporating day charters, photo shoots, promotional days, overnight stays, functions at either house or on the yacht or any combination. The vessel at 82ft can host 35 guests on day charters and events or up to 6 overnight guests. The House can entertain up to 60 guests or accommodate up to 13 overnight.
