About Starsand Yacht Charters WA


Simon Milsom, Captain

Starsand is a 65 foot ketch-rigged luxury yacht, handsomely crafted from timber and brass. A winner for the Tourism Excellence in the Fremantle Business Awards in both 2013 and 2014, Starsand is the only yacht of its kind operating as a charter vessel in the Kimberley and off the coast of Perth, it’s been the linchpin of a family-owned business since 1992.

Each year Starsand sails with the seasons up and down Western Australia’s spectacular coast line, skippered by the always fun and ever-reliable captain Simon Milsom.

STARSAND gets its name from a bay on a small island in Japan called Starsand Bay. The beach of this bay is made from beautiful particles that are the exoskeletons of millions of foraminifera – marine protozoans.

Starsand was completely refitted in 2007. It carries 24 passengers plus crew, and can sleep up to 10 passengers overnight. We operate regular twilight sails and day trips for the general public, departing from Fremantle between October and May. Between May and October, we call the Kimberley home. Our 10-day sailing adventures out of Broome are worthy of any ‘bucket list’.

Outside of its regular outings, Starsand is available for exclusive charter. It is fully licensed, offers gourmet catering (self-catering is an option) and comes complete with skipper and crew. Brimming with soul and style, Starsand makes a truly unique venue for functions, celebrations and corporate activities.
