Quick Cat

This 17 metre whale watching cat was launched in July 2003 and is now operating at Hervey Bay Queensland.  Custom designed to meet the owners specifications using a combination of many years of owners experience in successful whale watching and innovation by the designer Paul Birgan of Sea Speed. In trials she exceeded her predicted speed by two knots and is proving a very successful vessel.

The vessel is powered by twin 430 hp Cummins engines with a top speed of over 26 knots carrying 80 passengers and 5 crew.

During the whale watching season the vessel does two trips per day and in the off season the catamaran operates as a passenger ferry between Harvey Bay and Frazer Island.
