Featuring a large cockpit with an outside dining area and versatile ergonomic seating for up to eight guests, Mary Ann also has a functional hard-top bimini which protects the cockpit area and helm station where all the mainsail controls are located for hassle-free manoeuvres, even with a limited crew.
Powerboat-style open transoms really make boarding easy. Other features include a top-notch anchoring system with electric windlass, a convenient dinghy davit with electric winch, and twin 29Hp diesel engines for good motoring performance.
The galley-up design incorporates a spacious saloon area and aft-facing galley with a serving window overlooking the adjoining cockpit area. Large vertical windows forward provide excellent shade and rain protection, maximizing interior volume in the saloon area.
Accommodation includes four double cabins and two forepeak berths, great for kids or additional storage, and two large ensuites with dedicated shower compartments. Mary Ann is an excellent charter choice for a group of friends or the whole family to go bareboating!
We chartered sailing catamarans from Cumberland Charters April 2012 for the Tasman Ocean 35 “Serendipity” and April 2019 for the Leopard 38 “Mary Ann”. Our experience booking with Cumberland in 2012 was excellent and made the whole charter very relaxing and stress free from the time we arrived at Able Point Marina until we departed Proserpine Airport. The staff were very accommodating and caring which was the reason we went back to Cumberland for our second charter. Our April 2019 charter aboard Mary Ann was just as fun and relaxing as the 2012 charter. Cumberland was great, timely and dependable to deal with again for the booking, information and making arrangements. We spent the night on the boat before the charter began which allowed us to settle in and relax before the early morning briefing and sail guide time. We sailed Mary Ann from Able Point Marina around the Whitsunday and Hook Islands for 9 days. There was noticeable damage to some island hill sides, coral reefs and beaches from the 2017 Cyclone Debbie but the area generally seems to be recovering nicely. The charter area seemed busier in 2019 with day tours and guided charters so we started our sailing day early and finished early afternoon in order to secure good moorings and anchorages at the locations we visited. Cocktails, good food, sunsets and a bright full moon made the evenings idyllic and memorable. The weather was mixed sunny and rain but provided good, exciting sailing conditions. Mary Ann handled and sailed nicely. Was impressed with how steady and solid she was in 25 kt winds and 2 m seas. No issues other than a bilge pump light for port side engine compartment came on one day. After a quick check with Cumberland figured it was an indicator light issue only...nothing serious. Lots of fresh water, power, and galley equipment all worked great. BBQ was great! Thank you to Rebecca, Megan, Rob, and the rest of the Cumberland team for another wonderful holiday in the WhitsundaysTim - WHITEHORSE, YUKON, CANADA
