Our Boats

Custom designed by Robert Pennicott in conjunction with Kirby Marine Western Australia and Naiad New Zealand, these boats are ideal for eco-cruising in the ever-changing waters of South East Tasmania. They were designed for comfort, safety, stability and ease of viewing.

Open-air tiered seating gives each passenger an excellent all-round view. An open sided design ensures a direct connection with nature, not enclosed behind glass. Each boat carries a maximum of 43 passengers, delivering an intimate and personal eco-cruising experience.

These 12.5 metre vessels are powered by three 300 hp Mercury Verado supercharged 4-stroke engines. Electronically-balanced for high fuel efficiency and the quietest operation, they are the world's lowest emission power plants of their type.

These highly manoeuvrable boats allow skippers to take their guests into some of the dramatic deep sea caves scattered along the coastline, and right up close to the towering Jurassic Dolerite cliffs and rock formations.

Each boat is equipped with onboard toilet facilities. Life jackets are carried for all passengers, both adults and children, however these are not required to be worn during the trip.

There are six boats in the fleet, two based at Tasman Island Cruises and four at Bruny Island Cruises.
