Leopard 38 - "Mary Ann"
Featuring a large cockpit with an outside dining area and versatile ergonomic seating for up to eight guests, Mary Ann also has a functional hard-top bimini which protects the cockpit area and helm station where all the mainsail controls are located for hassle-free manoeuvres, even with a limited crew.
Powerboat-style open transoms really make boarding easy. Other features include a top-notch anchoring system with electric windlass, a convenient dinghy davit with electric winch, and twin 29Hp diesel engines for good motoring performance.
The galley-up design incorporates a spacious saloon area and aft-facing galley with a serving window overlooking the adjoining cockpit area. Large vertical windows forward provide excellent shade and rain protection, maximizing interior volume in the saloon area.
Accommodation includes four double cabins and two forepeak berths, great for kids or additional storage, and two large ensuites with dedicated shower compartments. Mary Ann is an excellent charter choice for a group of friends or the whole family to go bareboating!
Air-conditioning available when the vessel is on shore power only, in a marina.
We have been home for just over a week now and all I can think about is the beautiful Serengeti and the Whitsunday’s.
My husband and I along with 5 other great friends revisited (8th to 16th August) the Whitsunday’s (our last visit was 8 years ago)
Last time we had “Just Rosey” and this time our home for 8 days was “Serengeti” – and what a home she was!
We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw her come into Hamilton Island – Serengeti you little beauty.
Graham was excellent in his role as teacher to the men; both serious yet light hearted and we all felt quite prepared by the time we dropped Graham back at the jetty to catch the ferry home.
We had ample room both outside and inside the boat – the sundeck and the trampoline were well used by the ladies as we motored around the islands.
The outdoor area was perfect for our needs and the esky – what can I say!
The upstairs galley was a great source of enjoyment for those whose turn it was to prepare one of the many gourmet meals we ate.
The bedrooms were roomy and there was plenty of cupboard space for Dean to put his ironed jocks.
The beauty of the Whitsunday’s is still as breath taking as I remember it – the colour of the water is postcard material and really has to be seen to be believed.
The coral and the fish were a constant amazement at how beautiful life is under the sea (not to mention the show the whales put on)
We have shown our hundreds of photos to many of our friends since we have been home and they are all green with envy – the You Tube has been a constant source of laughter and happy memories for me and anyone willing to watch it again with me.
Thank you Cumberland; for giving us the opportunity to have such a memorable holiday again
