A modern loft-style interior that is airy and spacious, the Hanse 41 has large windows allowing light to flood the main saloon and a lovely cross breeze flow through to the cabins. 3 private double cabins and 2 ensuites make it the perfect bareboat for a group of friends or family up to 6.
The central saloon has a large table that can extend to accommodate any fellow sailors for dinner, while the galley with twin sink that doubles as extra bench space, gas stove and oven makes meal preparation easy.
An extra-wide companionway leads out to the cockpit that has a twin helm for ease of sailing in any wind condition. A furling headsail with sheets all leading back to the cockpit provides stress-free sailing. The fold-down transom serves as a swim and boarding platform and includes a handy locker for storing snorkelling equipment after a day exploring the Great Barrier Reef.
A deck esky and BBQ ensures that there is not much need to leave the scenic vista of the islands to enjoy meals other than on the back deck as the sun sets.
"2 Easy" is designed with ease in mind and perfect for a Whisunday bareboating escape.
We (three people) took over Lazyitis, a very good maintained and fitted charter boat with all you need for your Whitsunday holidays, coastal sailing and snorkeling. The technical and area briefing was perfect, And last but not least we got help from Terry in getting food and drinks from the local supermarket. But I have to mention one drawback: We had very unusual weather conditions with strong winds (a third reef in the main sail would have been good - but it had only two...) and therefor always little waves on good protected anchor grounds. And these little waves made a unnerving sound in the backside cabin. No way to sleep without earplugs. As you have nearly no marinas in the Whitsundays this is a real problem. Cumberland please check the backside underwater section - maybe this can be somehow improved. Thus we would not charter again Lazyitis (or any other Beneteau Oceanis 323 - to be sure) - but every other yacht of Cumberland Charter Yachts we would, and eventually will do!! As the Whitsunday Islands are great for sailing and (on normal wind condition) snorkeling we think we have to come back and do a more leisure style sail - with less rain, more sunshine and lower winds, but better snorkeling conditions.Gottfried - OBER-MöRLEN, GERMANY
