In March 2010, Annie, John and their beloved poodle Ralf set off on a journey that would take them from the Gold Coast to the top of the Great Barrier Reef in their brand new Integrity Yachts 350, Black Label.
There is no greater test of performance and value for a boat than that of an extended voyage by passionate boaties. Annie and John Sullivan are great examples of what can be achieved through a commitment to pursuing life’s great adventures that only owning a boat can provide.
In March 2010, Annie, John and their beloved poodle Ralf set off on a journey that would take them from the Gold Coast to the top of the Great Barrier Reef in their brand new Integrity Yachts 350, Black Label. To undertake such a journey means that a lot of planning and thought is given to the boat that will ensure your voyage is as safe and comfortable as possible. Annie and John decided the 350 from Brett, Peter and the team from Integrity Yachts would provide the most reliable and comfortable passage for their trip.
Their trip took them through some of the most pristine boating waters in Australia, from the Great Sandy Straights to The Hinchinbrook Passage up to Lizard Island and beyond. And at the same time enjoying many of the wonderful sights, sounds and experiences along the way such as catching plenty of mud crabs and fish, exploring the many islands and undertaking a game or two of beach golf.
“We chose the Integrity 350 as it was the best value boat of this style on the market, offering all that we required”, said John. “The wide walk-around side decks provide a very safe level of access to all areas of the boat for ease of berthing and anchoring, and the roomy undercover cockpit is a great spot to fish or just sit and relax. The team from Integrity allowed us to make some changes to the saloon and galley layout, which better suited our needs and having a full queen-size bed and heaps of storage in the master cabin was essential considering we would be spending so much time aboard. The boat offers exceptional range at a cruising speed of eight knots and we encountered some pretty rough seas, which the boat handled with ease. Integrity Yachts can definitely stand behind their name.” John went on to say.
