Description

Lightwave 38 Powercat - "Charisma"


Compellingly attractive in her handling, 'Charisma' is a breeze to navigate around the Whitsundays. Featuring 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, giving ample space for all on board. The starboard queen cabin has its own ensuite 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 flybridge 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 cooking up a feast after a day exploring.

Very popular in summer as she is air-conditioned and her shallow draft makes her the perfect choice for bareboating in the tropical waters of the Whitsundays.

Testimonial

I would highly recommend CCY bareboating to anyone looking for one of those trip of a lifetime experiences! We were two families with limited boating/sailing experience, but with a love of the water and plenty of engineering/paddle boarding/snorkeling b/t the 4 of us adults & 3 children aged 7-12yo. We chartered the Lightwave 38 Powercat Charisma for 7 nights, which was just enough space for all of us and frankly with even the best of friends, the right amount of time together on this sized boat. We ordered meats, milk, eggs, WATER (a must) & alcohol from the local shop to be put on the boat and brought the rest in our soft packs, incl most of the veg & fruit which you can carry from Vic into Qld. Planning all meals & ingredients needed in advance a bit of a hassle, but again well worth it. Cooking facilities are of course limited (the bbq was giving us some grief). Travelled end of June right before Vic term break and really lucked out with the weather, @20-25 every day, as you do take some chances that time of year. Brought spring suits which were enough to stay warm-ish while snorkeling for hours on end, although there were days I wished I had a full wettie. Highly recommend windbreakers & jumpers for this time of yr and also hiring paddleboards to get from the boat to the shore, as the dingy not always convenient. Also missed a lot of the crowds which we hear can be ruthless during peak times when finding the perfect mooring! Had 1-2 moments of rough seas so planned our trip accordingly. Spent a good deal of time around Hook & Hayman and basically followed calm water and snorkelling spots. Now onto the good stuff - the wildlife & sunsets, absolutely magnificent. Turtles, dolphins, fish, corals, manta-rays, reef sharks, giant clams, sea birds..Relieved to see all of the re-growth after the cyclone in Mar/April of this year. CCY very helpful in every step along the way, all in all a very memorable trip, 10/10 and we will be back!
