With dual 9.9hp Outboards she motors almost as well as she sails! Featuring 4 comfortable berths; 2 private double cabins and 2 king single berths, with 1 large ensuite to share, she is a popular cruising cat for young families. The kids will love the single berths both with opening hatches directly above for the ultimate star gazing. The cosy galley down the starboard hull is well designed with everything in arms reach, including a large separate fridge and freezer and plenty of bench space for preparing scrumptious meals after an exciting day of exploring and snorkelling. Read a book and relax on the forward tramps and watch the Whitsunday islands pass you by as you sail. The cockpit and saloon area can be fully enclosed or left open; enjoy a BBQ and family dinner with the stars before curling up in bed for a comfortable nights sleep.
How to have a perfect holiday? Two families &‘resort vehicle’, Gallivanter a recipe for an amazing time. From the moment we booked the boat with CCY the excitement of the holiday started building. We embarked on preparing our Charter through the Web page & knew exactly every step of the way what was needed for the trip. Finally, the day arrived & we were able to step on to Gallivanter as her crew with our briefing done & only our sailing lesson to do. We wore the provided raincoats, loaded provisions and with master sailor David were instructed about sails, the controls & safety features of the boat. We farewelled David & made our way to Nara Inlet. We prepared ourselves to deal with the rain as it was looking to stay with us for the week. But we woke to a perfectly sunny skies & the sounds of a water fall cascading off rocks just on shore. A new feature of the island we hadn’t seen before. The weather was superb; we had brilliant blue skies & crystal, clear calm waters! Every anchorage became our haven. The Whitsundays is a place of sheer majesty. At Manta Ray Bay we saw ‘Grommet’ the Maori Wrasse. The kids had a great time snorkeling, feeding the scores of small fish, & patting Grommet, more of a big puppy than a fish. We got to meet Grommet’s mate Trevor Trevalley who was equally happy with all the attention! We spent the night at Macona & the intrepid fisher girl caught a Trevalley – hopefully a much distant relative of Trev’s. At Cid Harbour - we were lucky enough to catch sight of a dugong & the next morning we were escorted out of our anchorage by two playful dolphins. The day at Hamilton we spent a relaxing, sipping cocktails & watching the kids play in the pool. It was then to Whitehaven Beach. The water was unbelievably blue & inviting & we had some of our best snorkeling among the bommies. Very big thank you to CCY who made sure our boat was well equipped & the holiday booking & administration went smoothly.Our 5th trip is a definite!Bill - KENMORE HILLS, QLD, AUSTRALIA
