Now housing 28 guests at a time, Boomerang offers a social tour that is great for backpackers and adventure-savvy travellers. Guests are welcome to help the crew sail, or to sit back and relax and enjoy the ride. Perfect for the young and young and young at heart, the average passengers ranges from 20 - 35 years old.

Boat Layout

In March 2009, Boomerang had a new interior fitted to cater for comfortable Whitsunday sailing tours. The boat has an extremely interior that features an open plan comcept. Some of the many features include headroom throughout higher than 6ft, 3 dining tables, 3 toilets and showers. Because the boat is so wide, there is plenty deck space to relax and soak up the sun! When she really get going, experience the thrill of your feet dangling off the side of the leaning vessel with the ocean breeze in your hair.

Similar to famous racing ships, Boomerang offers bunk-style accommodation. Comfortable single and double bunks line the inside of the hulls, leaving lots of room for social space. Boomerang is suited for those who enjoy sleeping in a shared space, taking the opportunity to meet new people. 

Sample Itinerary

Boomerang's itinerary will have you sailing around many of the Whitsundays Islands during your 2 day and 2 night adventure. As a maxi yacht, Boomerang is a performance sailer which means you will be travelling around at speed all with the help of wind power. Guests are able to give the crew a hand and help set sail, raise a sheet and have a go at the captain's wheel to give them to full sailing experience! Not only will you visit the famous Whitehaven Beach, but you will also get to the Northern end of the Whitsundays, where the best fringing coral reefs in the Whitsundays are found around Hayman Island, Langford Reef and Mantaray Bay.

You'll also get to visit the infamous Hill Inlet Lookout, where you can see one of the best views in Australia and snap some unforgettable photos to show family and friends back home. When you are not beach-hopping and seeing the sights, guests can do some snorkelling at two locations with fringing coral reefs which extend right from the edge of the Islands.

Please note, itineraries can change due to the weather, tides and your captains professional judgement.
