is a custom built aluminium vessel that is fast, strong and sturdy, being designed for the ocean and river. With a plaining hull we only draw 450cm giving us great access to the Noosa River Mouth on most tides and the ability for a beach access. Our vessel is smooth and comfortable in the ocean and waves and has been used for diving and fishing offshore. It is a very safe boat with built in floatation so it cannot sink! Exceeding all modern navigation and safety equipment standards for commercial use, you are in the best of hands.
For your convenience we have ample refrigeration, a toilet and a roof for shade. There is plenty of room to walk safely around the boat for great viewing.
We are very excited to take you on your next adventures in the waters around Noosa.
