One of the most comfortable and popular catamarans in The Whitsunday Islands with loads of extra freebies!
Sleek, modern and fast, Powerplay has been designed for a younger crowd who don’t want to slum it. Like most other overnight charter trips, she does indeed visit Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet plus loads of snorkelling. Bonus extras such as stand up paddle boards, air conditioning, a heated spa at the front of the vessel, large trampoline nets to watch the sunset on, interior movie theatre, WiFi and an on-board iPad truly make the difference with this catamaran – do as much or as little as you like!
ADD TO YOUR POWERPLAY TRIP:
Powerplay departs from Coral Sea Marina on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 12:00pm and returns on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Mondays at 11:00am. With all the mod-cons of the more upmarket catamarans such as air conditioning and a large fly bridge (complete with a tanning deck) on the second level, it’s a budget friendly choice for Generation Y travellers who aren’t eager to slum it or enough of a social butterfly for the party boats.
