"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

On Saturday 7th August, an eclectic crew from Sydney descended upon Airlie Beach arriving at Cumberland Yachts excited and ready to take over the islands! We’d booked our trip back in January after years of hearing about all the wonderful things the Whitsundays had to offer, and finally we started our journey in style with champagne in our glasses and laughter in our hearts. With our course set for Macona Inlet, we arrived on dusk and marveled at the beauty. The colours that appear at twilight in the Whitsundays are amazing to say the very least! The sound of wildlife erupted and another bottle of champagne was opened. The sun was warm and the gentle rocking of the boat pushed all thoughts of city life far into the distance. Fishing, island hopping, sun bathing, kayaking and reading soon became a normal part of daily routine and we could feel the The Whitsundays seeping through our bodies. Even on the one day when the sun was hiding, The Whitsundays still managed to spoil us when we were greeted by a soft “swooshing” noise which announced the arrival of a majestic hump back whale breeching ahead of us to wave lazily, leaving our crew staring in wonder and awe. Time after time the whale surface to show-off an oversized fin or large powerful tail. And not a day passed when we didn’t have turtles for visitors. The boat itself was beautiful, still new, fully equipped, and no luxury spared. Having the full standing height bathroom up front was a blessing. We found we could all 8 sit comfortably up in the flybridge for happy hour every afternoon, and we were still finding new storage spaces at the end of our trip! After 7 days afloat we left Charisma with sun kissed faces and bronzed bodies. It will forever be a trip to remember and we would like to thank Cumberland Yachts for turning on the weather and doing an amazing job in a town that is all about tourism. Cumberland are a standout and we thoroughly recommend them. We’re already talking about our next charter!Juliette - CASTLE HILL, NSW
