From $554 - $924 AUD per night
* Based on a 7 night charter


"CUMBERLAND FLING" -The word 'Fling' means literally a movement in dancing
Our Highland 35, "Cumberland Fling" could be named for "The Highland Fling" a spirited Scottish dance and a spirited little vessel she is!
Fling is a perfect charter vessel for a small family or couples wanting to cruise the Whitsundays aboard an easy to handle, compact and bright power catamaran.
She has 3 cosy double cabins and a generous bathroom down below. And the galley up is well equipped including a convection microwave and gas stove top; sitting inside the saloon area, which contains, for your entertainment, a TV, DVD and stereo with USB connectivity. The convenient helm station is forward of the saloon with panoramic vision providing a plethora of natural light.
In the cockpit there is a dining table with deck chairs, whilst the fly bridge provides ample seating, another helm station and a large sun lounge.
The Highland 35 is a great all rounder charter boat,making cruising the Whitsundays a dream come true: much like dancing across the sea.
Come for a spirited dance with "Cumberland Fling" and you won't regret the time spent!
"Over the glad waters of the dark blue sea, our thoughts as boundless, and our souls as free." - Lord Byron

Boat Layout


Cumberland, Cumberland this is Psycho Puss, Psycho Puss, reporting in for our sailing adventure of a lifetime. We can’t believe that the sea can provide us so much fun and pleasure. We’re from the river down in South Australia 250km for any sea. My husband Stu has always had a dream that he would like to sail the Whitsunday’s. He had told his brother in-law some twenty years ago that he would love to sail. Well…together we have now achieved that dream. They charted ‘Destiny’ a Seawind 1160 and we had ‘Psycho Puss’ a lightwave 38. Together we sailed around the Whitsunday islands for seven nights. It was the best thing we have ever done, and it definitely won’t be the last. The experiences were enormous. Stu got to sail, a dream come true and enjoyed ever moment of it, while the boys hoist the sails Stu navigated the lightwave into the wind and then attacking and jiving we made our way along the coast. It was exciting, peaceful and enjoyable. Terry our sail guide, taught the boys (3 of them) how to sail, they also snorkelled, crabbed, swam with turtles and played soccer on the beaches. Me, I got to snorkel, this may not seem unusual to some, but I have never put my head under water (never in the sea before) well I did it! Yeah, it’s the best thing seeing the beautiful, brilliant colours of the tiny fish. I tell everone how wonderful it is. I felt nervus and excited at the same time, a crazy feeling. The boat was well appointed it had every thing we needed. The boys got around in the little tender ‘Mad Kitty’. The Islands had the most beautiful scenery, big white beaches to walk and play on. At Butterfly Bay we saw the most magnificent butterflies with brilliant colours. This was the best snorkelling area for the week. Whitehaven, it is just a gorgeous place to anchor. We would like to thank the helpful and lovely staff at CCY for letting us achieve this dream. Lets hope that we see you all again. Over and Out ‘The Worsfolds’
