Rum Runner

“As typical with sailboats, the cabins are not spacious or very private; they are for resting and sleeping. The common areas include an open saloon area and galley inside and both covered and open outside decks ….  and with separate Male and Female Toilet – Shower Cabinet.
Overall, she is a comfortable sailboat, well suited for the adventurous. It is by no means a luxury dive boat. Those seeking pure sailing, privacy and luxury should really consider elsewhere…”

I read the above details with a very different viewpoint from most of the intended audience.

Wait, this boat has cabins? A covered outside deck? Separate male and female heads, sorry toilets, and there’s no mention of being expected to clean them? A shower? Not luxurious?

I guess that depends what you’re used to. I guess most of their customers aren’t used to stripped down racing yachts

  • with no cabins,
  • whose “covered outside deck” is the crew’s foul weather gear,
  • on which there might be two toilets but which one you use is determined by consideration for crewmates who might be trying to sleep nearby, and
  • where the shower cannot be used regularly because the passages are not short enough that enough water can be carried.

Rum Runner was my home whilst I was in Cairns – Sailing and Snorkelling!
