SeaLink's new superyacht for Sydney Harbour



SeaLink Travel Group today announced the purchase of the luxurious superyacht, "AUSPRO". She will join the Captain Cook Cruises fleet on Sydney Harbour in mid-November as a deluxe 'premium-end' charter and private cruising vessel.

Building upon Captain Cook Cruises' legendary focus on service, "AUSPRO" will deliver an extraordinary new level of luxury and sophistication. With her own full-time Captain and beautiful classic interior, "AUSPRO" is ideal for high-end corporate entertaining, five-star private functions, intimate weddings or celebrations and extravagant overnight getaways.

Responding to the recent growth of the superyacht 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 as it increases focus on attracting elite clientele locally and internationally.

"This is part of our three-year growth strategy for Sydney Harbour.  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 continued: "Our goal is to strive for consistent improvement. This is the first of many new initiatives planned for SeaLink/Captain Cook Cruises in the coming months."

Built by leading Italian superyacht manufacturing company Azimut, "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 superyacht 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.

The stylish saloon is finished in gloss mahogany and teak curved timbers, Italian cream leather upholstery and a padded ceiling with plush carpets. Extra detail in lighting and audiovisual enhances the luxurious ambiance. The galley is modern and stylish with European appliances and the flybridge has a fully equipped wet bar, glass fridges, BBQ and LCD TV.

Crew accommodation is for four crew plus a captain's cabin with a ship's office that allows for a liveaboard captain.

Captain Cook Cruises is currently upgrading AUSPRO with galley enhancements and a new exterior paint finish.
