This magnificent superyacht will enter the pristine waters of Queensland for the first time this June, where it will call the Gold Coast its home during the winter months.

Drawing inspiration from its esteemed land-based sibling, the iconic Raes on Wategos hotel in Byron Bay, Sea Raes effortlessly combines the relaxed elegance of European yachting with a distinct Australian sensibility. Guests will revel in the opportunity to embark on captivating day trips or immerse themselves in longer charters, all while savoring the finest culinary creations by the award-winning chef, Jason Saxby.

Picture this: you and your companions, gliding through azure waters, basking in the warmth of the sun, as you relish in a gourmet feast curated by Chef Saxby himself.
