Beneteau 43 - 'Olivetta'
Wander the Whitsundays in this classic Beneteau 43 with style and grace. With 3 double cabins and 2 ensuites, it is spacious enough for a fun group holiday for up to 8 people, yet intimate enough for a couple.
The saloon offers a large table with seating on 3 sides facing the galley which includes a gas stove and oven, making meal preparation a social affair. The companionway leads out to the cockpit fitted with a large fold-out table, deck BBQ and esky, perfect for drinks at sunset. The twin steering makes sailing it easy in any condition and the cockpit feel large and comfortable for all to sit back and relax as you sail around the Whitsundays taking in the amazing views.
The furling headsail is easy to operate and at 43 feet long, 'Olivetta' will take you on a relaxing meander to beautiful anchorages around the Whitsunday islands.
Everything was well organised from the boat briefing, help selecting our passage plan in tune with the weather forecast and advise from Steve on things not to be missed and the excellent provisioning that was pre-arranged.
Our Sailing catamaran Serendipity although a few years old was in good condition and a great layout for a champagne sailing trip!
The passage plan was awesome and enabled us to see all the great sights the islands offer. The 2 highlightswere the amazing Whitehaven Beach and snorkelling at Cateran Bay - unbelievable coral and beautiful fishes.
The debrief was a good initiative to help keep the boat in the best shape possible - a good job here by Deano....thanks mate!
Fully recommend Cumberland Charter Yachts and Serendipity.
