Wild Cat is a Lock Crowther design aluminium commercial sailing catamaran. She’s 15m long, 7m wide with a draft of 1.2m, and can carry up to 12 persons on board.
Wild Cat gets us to all our Great Barrier Reef conservation sites. She usually cruises at a rate of 8–10kts.
We generally have all our meals, briefings and presentations on board Wild Cat, as well as daily “sundowners” and nibbles at sunset. If the weather is favourable, volunteers are able sleep on board in swags up on the deck for a night.
Wild Cat also stores everything we need for our trips, including camping gear, working equipment, snorkels, wetsuits, a kayak and a paddleboard.
