M.Y. Flying Fish Takes Up Residency at Orpheus Island Lodge, Offering the Ultimate Private Yacht Experience

The M.Y. Flying Fish – Northern Escape Collection’s opulent 32m private superyacht, will take up residence at Orpheus Island Lodge this season, offering a rare and indulgent opportunity for guests to experience the world-class lodge and unspoilt island paradise from the privacy of a luxury yacht.

Having recently undergone a $2m refit and refurbishment, the glamourous M.Y. Flying Fish will provide an exclusive, floating hotel experience for private groups of up to eight guests. Interior living areas feature across three decks, complete with mahogany finishes and indulgent furnishings, ideal for sharing time and making memories. Four spacious and luxurious staterooms are outfitted with their own private ensuite bathrooms, the master with a spa bath. A classically designed exterior features a comfortably shaded alfresco dining area, multiple sun lounging areas, a helipad, and a fly deck saloon lounge where guests can enjoy panoramic views of the Coral Sea and take in Orpheus’ spectacular sunsets.

After waking in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and enjoying breakfast on board, guests can be transferred at leisure to Orpheus Island by their dedicated host, where they can take part in a daily signature experience such as local snorkel, guided island hike, cocktail class, low tide walk, sunset cruise or whale watching (when in season), or spend the day enjoying the island – exploring secluded coves by motorised dinghy, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing the catamaran, or simply relaxing by the infinity pool, enjoying a rejuvenating treatment at the resort’s Gwandalan Spa, and dining on chef-hatted meals showcasing locally-grown produce.

Northern Escape Collection’s Owner, Chris Morris said the M.Y Flying Fish’s Orpheus residency is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for private groups to treat themselves at one of Australia’s most breathtaking destinations.

“If there’s one thing the last year has shown us, it’s that we should make the most of every moment because you never know what’s around the corner,” Mr Morris said.

“Sharing amazing adventures in a spectacular location can be really powerful when it comes to reconnecting with friends and family, so with only a few windows of availability remaining at Orpheus Island Lodge for 2021, we are launching our M.Y. Flying Fish private yacht package so that more guests will be able to enjoy this incredible part of the world and make up for that lost holiday time.”
