"CHARISMA" - 1. compelling attractiveness or 2. a divinely conferred power or talent.
This Lightwave 38 Power Cat definitely exudes Charisma; she is compellingly attractive and her handling has been described as "divine". Charisma is one of our most popular Power Cat choices for her space and grace.
She features 2 queen size cabins, 1 double cabin, a small single berth located in the port side queen cabin plus the saloon can be utilised as another single berth. The starboard queen cabin has its own en suite while portside is a generous full size bathroom.
The saloon and galley are both located in the middle of the boat up from the cabins and the use of space is both efficient and attractive.
The cockpit and fly bridge areas provide a great space to entertain and relax whilst cruising in style around the magnificent Whitsunday islands.
The BBQ located in the cockpit is perfect for the fresh fish you have just caught.
Very popular in summer as she is air-conditioned and her shallow draft make her the perfect choice for bareboating in the tropical waters of the Whitsundays.
"Charisma - You can't buy it. You can't make it. And you sure can't fake it!" - unknown

Boat Layout


What a great experience and wonderful charter holiday. From the moment that we met the Cumberland Charter Yachts (CCY) skipper at Hamilton Island and was coached about the boat and sailing the Whitsundays we were off! It was so reassuring to get good training on use of the boat prior to heading out on our own - it's a nerve wrecking time driving someone else's beautiful boat. We opted for a Power Cruiser that had air conditioning which made a big difference to the kids during the humid nights. We got to see lots of marine life and particularly loved the area around Hayman Island for swimming and snorkelling. We caught our biggest ever GT (5kg) in Nara Inlet one morning as well as Red Emperor and Sucker Fish (the ones that suck to the big rays and dolphins) and a number of other fish that we couldn't identify. The clock-in with CCY twice daily ensured that we were in safe hands and guided as to the best spots to see during the day and anchor up at night. A wonderful bareboat experience and worth every $$. The only thing that I will change on our next CCY charter is to pick the boat up at Airlie Beach and to get our own provisions from a local supermarket - it's pretty costly doing it through a provisioning company (albeit that the quality of food was great)!
