Explore Dreamtime

After we test drove Dreamtime our comment was ‘awesome’ and we placed the order that day for our new vessel.

When we had Dreamtime built we went looking for the perfect boat. The wish list included a smooth ride, plenty of power and speed, good stability and plenty of room on board. The answer came when we went for a test drive in a Nustar Cat with a beam of 5 metres and a speed of 26 knots. The boat handles superbly, even in choppy conditions, with very little roll and next to no hull slamming which you get on a similar sized single hull at the same speed.

The amount of room on the boat is incredible, and the ability to stand on the bow and watch dolphins swim through the tunnel makes Dreamtime one of the best charter boats in Australia.
