Your boat for your half day Gold Coast fishing charter...

is a safe and stable fishing platform, as used by many rescue authorities.

‘Reef Cat II’ is a 10 meter/33ft Cougar catamaran with fishing areas on both the front and back decks and is licensed to carry 12 guests. Built to government survey regulations, survey safety equipped, and fitted with modern fishing electronics, she is a fast, stable, twin hulled, wide bodied, twin engine boat with ample seating under a large roof area. She is powered by two quiet and smokeless 250hp Yamaha four-stroke engines.

Reef Cat II is a purpose built fishing charter boat and therefore has a large, insulated icebox to chill your catch.

For your comfort, there is an enclosed and modern electric flushing, highly sanitized, private toilet in the forward cabin. It is complemented with an electric fresh running water tap with basin, liquid soap, mirror and disinfectant deodorizers.

Visit the “Your Crew” page to meet the crew who will welcome you on board the charter boat and assist you throughout your trip.
