Ready for a Team Building Day with a Difference?

Book your corporate day out on ‘Merit’

No sailing experience required. 


How is it possible that a bunch of non-sailors can crew a Volvo 60 in Brisbane?

When you book your team a corporate day out with Grand Prix Yachting, you not only get the chance to feel what it’s like to be on a high-performance racing yacht, your team will gain skills they might never have dreamed of. Our crew is well-trained in making sure your team members enjoy a role suited to their strengths and abilities.

What an opportunity for your Corporate Team Building Event.

Choose a full day event or, if your group is really ready for action, ask us about a two-day sailing experience.

“Wow! … Thank you for the experience of a lifetime.”

The Yacht

‘Merit’ is a Volvo 60 Ocean racing yacht, built of kevlar and made for speed. At 60 feet long there is plenty of space onboard for your group of up to 24 people.

Owner/Skipper Michael Schwarzel holds a Royal Yachting Association Offshore Yachtmaster Certificate and is a qualified sailing instructor.

Experience? He’s crossed oceans, won trophies, dealt with those moments at sea you’d rather avoid, plus rebuilt ‘Merit’ almost from scratch after Cyclone Debbie. With his ‘plan, prepare, execute’ approach, even novices feel safe and have an excellent time participating on board.

Available dates for Team Building

‘Merit’ is available for corporate charter in the Whitsundays.

For dates, please get in touch.

For race event dates, see Grand Prix Yachting’s Race Events opportunities.

“I’d never been sailing before, much less on a vessel built for speed. What a truly enjoyable experience.”

Matt Giannini

“Don’t miss this great opportunity to experience offshore yacht racing at its best.”
