Sydney International Boat Show VIP Tour

Sailing an Outremer 51 on the Mediterranean

  If you have been living your cruising ambitions vicariously through YouTube, then you may have seen the Outremer 45 thanks to some recent attention generated when a young Aussie couple, who go by the name Sailing La Vagabond, received a little help from Outremer to upgrade their yacht to a 45. Riley and Elayna from La Vagabond have been exploring the islands of the Med showing a fantastic insight into what it is like to cruise on this this vibrant, culturally rich, spectacularly beautiful and incredibly popular cruising destination. I visit the Outremer factory just days after the Cannes Boat Show to take our newest Aussie customers, John and Anne Strickland, through the factory, go sailing on their future boat (the Outremer 51), and get the lay of the land for when they take delivery of their boat and start their epic cruising…

Charter Boat Master Class – a huge success!

Charter Boat Master Class – a huge success! Have you ever considering owning a luxury cruising yacht or motor boat but couldn’t justify buying one due to the costs, lack of time to use it or your limited big boat experience? Have you ever considering owning a luxury cruising yacht or motor boat but couldn’t justify buying one due to the costs, lack of time to use it or your limited big boat experience?  These are some of the questions that were addressed at the Charter Boat Master Class that was held at White Bay 6 Marine Park. Now more than ever with the demand of charter boats in short supply due to the effects of recent cyclones around the world, plus the strong Australia dollar, it is a great time to look at pursuing this opportunity.  We provided an opportunity for prospective owners to understand why…

Seawind 1160 Resort arrives in Sydney

Another week and another Seawind is launched in Sydney in time for the Sydney International Boat Show. This time its a new Seawind 1160 Resort ‘Tiger 3’ owned by Andrew Dent and skipper Gavin Hottess as part of their growing Tiger Catamarans fleet on Sydney Harbour. Tiger 3 is a brand new Seawind 1160 Resort charter boat that will carry up to 43 passengers ad 2 crew all around Sydney Harbour’s beautiful bays and beaches. Due to its unique 1D classification, it can travel on partially smooth waters which allows access to Manly which most charter boats cannot reach. Andrew also owns a Seawind 1050 Resort “Tiger 2” catamaran, an earlier predecessor to the 1160 Resort that has been a remarkable proof of concept of a day charter design in Australia. With the two boats now in the Tiger Catamaran Charter fleet, they can…

Diving and Exploring Espiritu Santo

SEAbbatical Destination: Vanuatu By Brent Vaughan Port Orla It’s the middle of winter, 26 degrees, sunny and almost humid, but there is a nice gentle breeze that drifts across the ocean. We are in the small coastal town of Luganville on the north island of Vanuatu, Espiritu Santos, to enjoy some of the local hospitality and the most accessible wreck dive in the world. While Luganville isn’t much to write home about itself, it was once a major US military base during World War II and it provides the gateway to exploring these remnants of the past and the spectacular landscapes and islander culture that surround it on the islands of Espiritu Santo. While Vanuatu is most famous for its Volcanoes (its located on a fault line), the originator of bungy jumping (tribes on Pentacoste Island tie vines to their ankles and jump from…

How to do your best work, when not at work

Business by remote and the 80:20 rule Entrepreneurial SEAbbaticals Ever since a young kid I’ve been around boats, the sea and the sand and when I’m in or around these I always have a sense of my life (or the fun bank) being fulfilled rather than drained. I’ve always thought it important to keep the fun bank topped up whenever possible and so I never really escaped the boating lifestyle and ultimately I choose (or it choose me) to combine work and pleasure to a point where it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish one from the other…that’s just the way I like it. Sure it’s not all fun and games and can be bloody hard work, but there is certainly plenty of fun to be had so it’s a question of getting the balance right. I love my work and blessed to run a successful…

Seawind 1250 – Feeling frisky on Whiskers in Tasmania!

We have just returned from a month’s sailing trip to Tasmania on our Seawind 1250 – Whiskers! This was our second trip in two years having enjoyed it so much last year that we vouched to return. We left on 8th February and sailed from Martha Cove to Bicheno on the NE Coast in 4 days via Cape Woolamai, Deal Island, and Badger Island (off Flinders Island). Our total sailing time was 52 hours so we made it in good time with the weather in our favour. After 2 days in Bicheno, we sailed down the east coast of Tasmania past the scenic Freycinet Peninsula and Schouten Island. We spent a night at Riedle Bay, Maria Island then ventured further on towards Tasman Island sailing past the majestic rock cliffs of the Tasman peninsula and into Port Arthur. Sailing that day was exhilarating to…
