"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

The time had come again, the 5th time with Cumberland and the 10th in the Whitsunday’s. As for the boats, they just get bigger, Serengeti, this is a big boat, in ever respect. Cumberland and their crew, great to deal with again, Customer service with a smile. Three couples on this trip plenty of room for all, Third day in one of our crew found out what sea sick is all about, lasted 24hrs and had to get off. Rested on Hamilton for a couple of days, no better. Had to fly home, all disappointed. The Captain doesn’t get seasick, but tried to find out what is was like on the first night, need to make my own drinks in future, the drinkies went down to fast. Not so happy the next morning. Some of the guys had never snorkelled before, dropped over the side at Manta Ray bay and swam with the big Fishes. There were some pretty excited faces, even under the masks. Could not understand what was being said under water, I think it was “Are they hungry”. Down to Whitehaven on the outside, everyone excited about the beach. Time to get off the boat and go walking on that famous sand, white and squeaky. Spent the night at tongue bay, up to the lookout, what a view. Spent a couple of nights in Hamilton Island hoping for a recovery of our sick friend, Heading into Hamilton we felt like the king of the castle. Serengeti, 48ft did I mention she’s big. Until you sail into Hamilton Marina, “Yep, we found bigger, there’s lots of money floating around in that Marina”. Ten days on this boat, had a few wet ones in the middle of the trip, Stonehaven to Hamilton, 38 knots of wind on the nose, short sharp chop, 1 to 4 knots, the sail drives purring away at 1700rpm, everyone inside, myself “lonely at the helm”, good thing about the rain, it washed all the salt water of the me and the Boat, there was plenty of spray coming over the front.
