The Aussie-built Seawind Venturer 38 is a vessel perfectly suited to local conditions. She boasts bright open spaces and economical performance, making her ideal for the long voyages between east coast ports.
The new Venturer is built to world-class standards and offers excellent handling characteristics and exceptional long-range cruising capabilities. The conditions for the vessel being tested on this day were nigh on exceptional.
The Seawind 1000 demonstrates perfectly why multihulls have come into their own. New yachts are selling here in unprecedented numbers, many to first-or second-time owners, and almost all are intended for family boating.
For many people their only chance to ride on a Shark Cat will be when they are on a Queensland holiday and take a charter. They will marvel at the way the big boats lift on the cushion of air and spray which mixes in the tunnel as speed increases.
The Signature is a semi displacement type power catamaran, although typically of cats, it does perform noticeably better with a little more speed rather than less. Those looking at buying one of these new cats can expect to part with around $660,000.
If power cats are your thing, these Tigers are worth a closer look. There's so much room, so much access to the water, plus so much stability. Six or seven people can fish at the same time. This is a lot of boat for a basic $475,00
The Spirited 380 looks good, it's light and therefore quick and easy to handle. This boat, built by Craig and a team, was finished to a very high standard; the interior is high-style, bright, finished to production levels.
The Voyager V1040 is one of the most versatile cruisers on the market. She boasts a variety of layouts - three double berths with one or two bathrooms, or an owner's queen-sized bed in one cabin, a double in the other and twin single berths in the third.
