On Board Waltzing Matilda
OK, so now a little about Waltzing Matilda. She is known in the tourist industry at Airlie Beach as one of the Whitsundays most safe and comfortable charter boats. As a 60ft Ketch design, she is large, stable and she sails very well in the typically smooth waters of the Whitsundays. Her 40 odd tons means she is very stable in the water and that means less movement and a more comfortable sail, especially for those who may be prone to a little motion sickness.
As an extra safety aspect, she has over sized (both in height and in diameter) side rails. This is most important especially if children are sailing onboard. Comfort wise, on deck, a large area is covered with soft matting. This is easy to walk on and a great place to lay and soak up the beautiful Whitsunday Islands weather. Accommodation wise, unlike most catamarans, Waltzing Matilda can comfortably sleep 14 in 5 cabins making a sailing adventure charter very economical (see video).
