City of Darwin Cruises, and their 1160 Resort KURU has been an instant success.  One of the first new 1160 Resorts ordered, KURU is featured in our 1160 Resort video and comes perfectly equipped to explore Darwin Harbour and the region.  City of Darwin Cruises offer “a unique eco-sailing and history experience of Darwin” but they also run corporate events, weddings, and kids parties.


Eco-tourism is a buzzword in today’s charter market, but with a new Seawind 1160 RESORT that’s not just hype – the boat can come equipped with a revolutionary electric drive system that eliminates emissions and helps your business show the natural environment, without contributing to harming it.  Electric propulsion isn’t just an environmental issue – it’s an economic one as well.  Day charter catamarans see a lot of use in an active, busy business.  Fuel consumption is an important consideration.  And, when financing a catamaran for business purposes, it could be important to shift those costs away from ongoing running costs in the form of fuel.


As anyone who has ever been there will tell you – Sydney Harbour is best seen from the water.  OZCAT delivers the splendour of Sydney Harbour for a variety of guests from birthday parties and stag/hen parties to corporate events and team building.  Ozcat even hosts weddings and proposals!  The 1160 Resort offers open 360 degree panoramic views of Sydney for unforgettable experiences.


If you’re unsure of the features needed on a day charter boat, speak to us today.  Ozcat use their 1160 Resort to host important business meetings or client entertainment funtions, which have very different needs to traditional partygoers.  The 1160 Resort is equipped to handle both.  Need a waterslide from the roof?  Check.  Added bar-b-q space?  Check.  Need the boat to be an open conference room?  Check.  The options list is thorough and well thought out – even the size and layout of the drinks bar can be increased or reduced to meet your needs.
