Description

Hanse 388 - 'Wikama'


A record number of portholes and hatches mean the interior of this yacht is flooded with more light than any other yacht in its class. Thanks to the self-tacking jib with all lines leading back to the cockpit with twin helm positions, it is incredibly easy to sail.

With 5 openable hatches on deck, a central saloon window and two hull windows and a cockpit hatch in both aft cabins, the interior are flooded with natural light throughout the day.

3 double private cabins accompanied by 1 ensuite to share, the Hanse 388 is perfect for a small family or 3 couples. The central galley with gas stove, oven and plenty of bench space connects to the cockpit via the companionway that leads out to a large table that folds away easily when under sail.

Chill out with some music using the iPod dock or CD player, sipping on a cold beverage as the sun sets and you reminisce about the adventure you had for the day, exploring the Whitsundays on your very own bareboat charter.

Testimonial

I had a dream I had a dream of sailing in the Whitsundays. Ever since hearing about these islands it struck a chord and I felt that sailing there was something I really had to do: not very easy from distant and landlocked Zimbabwe in Africa. Over the years what seemed a dream became more tangible. Two visits to Australia in 2000 and 2006 gave opportunities to envisage how it could materialize. Finally in 2010, the chance of another holiday in Australia and a base in Airlie Beach became available! The only thing that needed to fall into place was a ‘last minute’ place on a boat. All was well however and our Whitsunday sailing was going to be on Lazyitis, a Beneteau 323 from Cumberland Charter Yachts. Once the boat availability was confirmed we finalized our route based on the expected weather conditions. During our five day cruise places which had been no more than names or photos on calendars - Nara Inlet, Cayman Bay, Tongue Bay, Hill Inlet, Whitehaven Beach, Solway Passage, Cid Harbour and Daydream Island - were experienced personally. A daily routine emerged - raising anchor, having breakfast while making way with the motor, sailing as the winds freshened, picking up moorings, snorkeling, swimming, excursions on the tender, walking on beaches and exploring trails, setting anchor and relaxing watching another marvelous sunset. Sightings of a whale, dugong and turtles all added to the magic. The Beneteau is a great boat. It sails well, is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. For our 2 families and the 6 of us, this was a 5 day luxury cruise – the 2 ladies were delighted with the galley and cooking facilities, not to mention the ‘head’ and hot water showers. It was a wonderful experience and one to savour and reminisce on in the years ahead and truly a dream come true thanks to Cumberland and their excellent service.
