Perry 43 4 Cabin - 'Stardust'
The perfect sailing catamaran ideal for cruising the magnificent Whitsundays in style! Four double cabins; two with ensuite and a larger bathroom aft provide plenty of space and privacy for up to 10 people, perfect for a large family or group of friends.
The galley is fully equipped to cater for large groups including a microwave, stovetop and oven, large fridge and two good sized freezers as well as a large pantry to store enough provisioning for the entire charter.
The bright and airy saloon with large L shaped lounge comfortably seats 8 is the perfect place to relax after a fun filled day exploring. Whilst the spacious cockpit provides shade and plenty of seating with a large table and huge esky; great for entertaining.
Dive from the rear duck boards straight into the pristine waters of the Whitsundays. Stargaze on the front deck tramps or be entertained by the TV and state of the art entertainment system. DVD's, fishing books, recent novels and binoculars are all there for you to sit back and relax with.
For your comfort enjoy the air conditioning during our tropical summers. As for performance; 2 x 50 HP inboard diesel engines, 1000L water capacity, 800L fuel capacity, and electric anchor winch offers the excellent sailing performance we have come to expect from Perry catamarans.
First, congratulations must go to the whole Cumberland Crew for their highly professionally operated business; Meticulous attention to detail, and endless friendly help is there from start to finish.
Set up: The website is splendid to contemplate your holiday: endless information guiding would be charterers towards the best vessel for them and accurate budgeting tools. Valet parking and coach travel was booked for us and nothing missed a beat.
Arrival: We received the best friendly personal welcome that exceeded all expectations.
Vessel: A treat to step aboard and see the presentation, so many rolled up perfectly white towels of many sizes, more than 2 per person!
We chose to sleep on board the night before Charter and this was a good move to get our frozen food stored from 3pm. This allowed a relaxed night, (after late night shopping for perishable food) and we were familiar with most parts of the vessel before the briefing early the next day. This facility is a real winner not just for the financial advantage.
The Lipari 41 accelerated to 9 knots en-route to Nara in 25 knots, and a new experience at being able to walk around in these conditions. No going back to a monohull!
The walk to the cave at Nara is great. Be prepared to share breakfast with the resident white cockatoos here. They will sit on your arm eating cereal from your hand! Have your camera ready!
Blue Pearl Bay: The pristine coral and the visiting fish were highlights as was the unbelievable sunsets.
Tongue Bay: So many small and very large turtles everywhere. The walk over the hill to view Hill inlet takes your breath away.
So much more....... go explore! The memories will last a lifetime.
