Beneteau 323 - 'Lazyitis'
With spacious easy to glide around cockpit and decks, a walk through transom, and a swim platform with a shower and ladder means you will be exploring the fabulous snorkel and dive sights around the Whitsundays at will.
The aft cabin boasts a 7 foot king size bed, while the forward cabin is near a shared ensuite, it is the perfect bareboat to charter for a couple on their honeymoon, or 2 couples. A two burner stove and gas oven in the fully equipped galley makes cooking a breeze and a small BBQ out in the cockpit gives you a choice of dining experience - alfresco under the stars.
The cockpit has a central steering wheel close to all the sheets and lines needed to easily sail the boat single-handedly if needed, while everyone else is up on deck soaking up the sun.
WHITSUNDAYS REPORT – JULY 2010 .....by Jen Curtis Crew Member “Skedaddle” Our sailing adventure began with the warm and friendly assistance of CCY, months before we entered the waters of the Whitsundays. Arrangements were finalised – it was all too easy – and in what seemed like no time at all, we were welcomed by the CCY staff and shown over what was to be our ‘seafaring accommodation’ for the next 7 days : our brand new Mahe 36 “Skedaddle”. we ‘four’ should never have shopped whilst so hungry! Abel Point Marina turned on a magical sunset which followed with the perfect morning to hoist the sails and enjoy our cruising life. “Skedaddle” was the ultimate in comfort and ‘she’ and her crew enjoyed the challenging winds and waves - even the confirmed ‘monohullers’ on board, yet to be convinced of a Cat’s performance, couldn’t fault the way ‘she’ carried full main and headsail in 25 knots of wind... and yes – more to the point - no heal to spill the drinks! With continued support from our ‘CCY land crew’ and ever faithful charts and channel markers, we were guided into beautiful anchorages such as Butterfly Bay, Cateran Bay, Whitehaven Beach and Tongue Bay. What is it they say? – “beautiful one day, perfect the next” which is where we found ourselves sitting with legs over the edge of “Skedaddle’s” hull, peering into the crystal clear waters of Manta Ray Bay, pondering our morning of snorkelling, when we decided this was an anchorage to which we must definitely return ...........even though two of us had already been here before... of course, one (or four or more) can never have too much of a great thing! With deep regret we leave with so much more to explore and to share with you but that will perhaps have to wait till we report on our next voyage to the idyllic isles of the Whitsunday Passage.Jen - SURREY HILLS, VIC
