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.
Cumberland Magic through the Whitsunday Islands a truly memorable experience. First night at Nara Inlet was spent in seclusion with fresh Oysters off the rocks. Come morning we snorkelled among the coral forms, then off to Mays Bay for a swim. After to Butterfly Bay, Itís amazing with the cockpit surrounded by butterflys on a safe anchorage. Next day up anchor to Blue Pearl Bay for a swim among a school of large fish then across the top of the Whitsunday Island Chain and down to Hook Island trawling for Mackeral. We moored in Cateran Bay.Snorkeling in the morning was incredible, an easy distance from Magic. Tongue Bay,where everyone enjoyed a walk on the island and the view over Whitehaven Bay. Fresh mackeral at hand we anchored for the night, and enjoyed another fish BBQ aboard. Chalkies beach the next morning was an absolute delight. Through the Pass across the top of Hamilton Island with the first signs of civilization again. After a quick radio ashore, we were escorted to our Berth for the night. Island buzzing, the jet airliners landing across the face of the Marina, a truly international feel. Cid Harbour, anchored easily and quickly a family of turtles welcomed us. A tender over to the small island beside Cid Island for some snorkelling and a late afternoon walk on Dugong Beach. Off to Day Dream Island and on to anchor. A couple of whales 50m astern of Cumberland Magic, having never been this close we were enchanted, they just hung out and swam enjoying the sun much the same as we were.The Girls were keen to catch up with Greg Evans from A Perfect Match! Back in Abel Point Marina, a Cumberland escort was available to guide us in and the cruise had come to an end all too soon. With this being our first bare boat charter, it definitely wont be our last with Cumberland. The boat was immaculate, reliable. We feel we have only scratched the surface of what we could see and are keen to return.Justin - FLOREAT, WA
