Beneteau 323 - 'Lazyitis'

With spacious easy to glide around cockpit and decks, a walk through transom, and a swim platform with a shower and ladder means you will be exploring the fabulous snorkel and dive sights around the Whitsundays at will.

The aft cabin boasts a 7 foot king size bed, while the forward cabin is near a shared ensuite, it is the perfect bareboat to charter for a couple on their honeymoon, or 2 couples.

A two burner stove and gas oven in the fully equipped galley makes cooking a breeze and a small BBQ out in the cockpit gives you a choice of dining experience - alfresco under the stars.

The cockpit has a central steering wheel close to all the sheets and lines needed to easily sail the boat single-handedly if needed, while everyone else is up on deck soaking up the sun.

What a great experience and wonderful charter holiday. From the moment that we met the Cumberland Charter Yachts (CCY) skipper at Hamilton Island and was coached about the boat and sailing the Whitsundays we were off! It was so reassuring to get good training on use of the boat prior to heading out on our own - it's a nerve wrecking time driving someone else's beautiful boat. We opted for a Power Cruiser that had air conditioning which made a big difference to the kids during the humid nights. We got to see lots of marine life and particularly loved the area around Hayman Island for swimming and snorkelling. We caught our biggest ever GT (5kg) in Nara Inlet one morning as well as Red Emperor and Sucker Fish (the ones that suck to the big rays and dolphins) and a number of other fish that we couldn't identify. The clock-in with CCY twice daily ensured that we were in safe hands and guided as to the best spots to see during the day and anchor up at night. A wonderful bareboat experience and worth every $$. The only thing that I will change on our next CCY charter is to pick the boat up at Airlie Beach and to get our own provisions from a local supermarket - it's pretty costly doing it through a provisioning company (albeit that the quality of food was great)!
