"Bluey the Fly" has been set up to explore the more sheltered areas like Cairns' headlands and close in reefs and islands and creeks etc. Cairns BednBoat's 4.55m polycraft centre console boat is in survey to 15nm, however and is able to go out to the reef on calm days. The boat's capacity is 4 pax (450kg) but Paul suggested that 3 or 2 persons are better for reef trips.
"Bluey" powered by 60hp 2 stroke - flat stick 26 knots or 20 knots cruising for comfort and economy (average reef trip days 60-70 ltr).
It has a fold down canopy, colour Navman GPS Chart Plotter & Sounder and 60ltr esky. Al safety gear is supplied including a VHF radio.
Cairns BednBoat often hires out "Bluey the Fly" for extended trips away, for example Hinchinbrook, Cooktown and Lake Tinnaroo.
