 Silent Night:

Max and Judith Max Macintyre & Judith Van Hulst are the owner operators of Silent Night and they are a hands on operation. Max skippers the yacht every week and Judith still does the occasional trip though mainly is kept busy with the behind the scene operations. Max has been sailing in the Whitsundays for more than 12 years. Still driven by the thrill of sailing and the beauty of the region, his passion has not faded. “We aim to put a smile on everyone’s face.” Silent Night offers the perfect balance between comfort and the thrill of performance sailing with space for all to sit above and below deck.

Brad now skippers his own boat every week and Bri takes care of the business side of things, in amongst her other duties as a young mum. Their philosophy for Summertime is fun, fun, fun, life’s short with not a moment to lose. Dive, sail and kayak a trip on Summertime is jam packed with activity followed by a soak in the hot tub with a chilled drink at the end of the day. “It’s the kind of holiday that we love to have.” A holiday cruise to remember.
