Charter Testimonials from our Happy Charterers

Gary and Tiana,
To the most amazing three days we’ve had here in Australia, thank you!!
You are both the most caring, fun and inviting hosts and our experience on Razzle Dazzle wouldn’t have been the same without you.  From watching ‘Finding Nemo’ to actually FINDING Nemo, you have showed us a piece of your beautiful home.  We enjoyed every moment!

10 glorious nights sailing the Whitsundays on Razzle Dazzle. Highlights – Snorkelling, bush walking, feeding the beautiful big Wrasse.  Favourite bays – Blue Pearl Bay, Chance Bay, Mantaray Bay and of course the stunning Whitehaven Beach!
Loved every day from dawn til dusk.  Enjoyed the picturesque scenery.
To Tiana and Gary … Thank you so much for your advice and help from the start of our adventure through to the end.
To Razzle Dazzle … “We sailed you, we loved you, but can’t have you.”
A trip / holiday the four of us will never forget!!!

First time sailing and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.  Saw the Maori Wrasse at Mantaray Bay (must see!!!), turtles, dolphins and plenty of fish – but not for catching.
Great weather and a beautiful place.  Recommend Hamilton Island for a day or two.  Lots of relaxing and fun times.
And lastly, a huge thanks to Gary and Tiana – you couldn’t ask for more perfect and helpful people to deal with.  Thanks for an amazing week!

An absolute joy from the initial contact through to the entire period of the holiday.  We experienced all the sights, activities and adventures this beautiful part of the world has to offer.  Getting to meet ‘George’ at Mantaray Bay was a real highlight.  Thanks you to Tiana and Gary for providing us with such a wonderful, memorable first class experience!

We had a fabulous week on Razzle Dazzle!  A complete mix of weather including 30kt winds, which allowed us some very good sailing conditions, but with choppy seas at times.  Despite the rough seas, Razzle Dazzle was extremely comfortable and a pleasure to be aboard.
Dolphins, whales and turtles ….. we saw them all!  A highlight was hand feeding the Maori Wrasse at both Mantaray Bay and Luncheon Bay.  One of the best holidays we have had!  We will definitely be back!
Thanks Gary and Tiana!

A wonderful week on Razzle Dazzle.  Some rain and strong winds didn’t dampen our time together and helped us appreciate the beautiful blue days of exploring and snorkelling the magnificent Whitsunday Bays.  Even had a curious whale and calf come so close to us on our mooring.
Razzle Dazzle is a lovely, comfortable boat, great fun to sail and very well equipped with everything we could possibly need.  Thanks Gary and Tiana.

Thank you Gary and Tiana for all of your assistance, input and caring.  Your consideration on many levels is and was simply wonderful!
We saw and maintained 11 to 11.3 kts in 18 kts apparent wind.  Bradon (14 years) had first time at the helm.  As a sailor myself, and father, another magic moment.
Swam with and PATTED a turtle several times at Cateran Bay.  Simply amazing!!!  Swimming in heaven!!!

Greg Wear – Glen Oak, NSW

A big thank you to Gary and Tiana and Razzle Dazzle.  A great family experience.  The Whitsunday scenery is magnificent – such a beautiful part of Australia – was wonderful to enjoy Whitehaven, Blue Pearl Bay and Cateran Bay at our leisure – AWESOME!
Highlight for me was swimming with a turtle as she came up for a breath – MAGIC!

Tiana and Gary, thank you for making our family vacation such a lovely one!  The boat is great and the islands are magnificent with coral and fishes that are just amazing, and yet I know that some of my best memories will be of sharing stories with the two of you and seeing Tiana’s gorgeous smile light up when she talks of her children and of Gary’s blue, blue eyes laughing when he tells us about kissing sharks!
Thank you for sharing your life with us for these 5 days and bringing the Australian spirit alive for me – sure makes me happier knowing my daughter is living in a country with such warm and generous people, even if it is 15800 kms away from us.

Betsey Nelson – San Francisco

We all feel totally served, safe and satisfied.  Food was great!  Gary and Tiana were fun travelling partners ….. sensitive to our needs and wishes at all times.  Felt like we were a family.

Thank you guys for opening your hearts and home (boat home) to us.  It felt like family.  Sharing gorgeous snorkels and family meals – it’ll be hard to beat.

The choice for our honeymoon was either Vietnam or Razzle Dazzle.  We chose the correct one!  Wow, what a special time for us.  Thanks Gary and Tiana.  Too many highlights to name but right up there would be the sea plane landing next to Rod in the dinghy whilst he was quietly fishing at Stonehaven to whisk us up and out snorkelling to the outer reef.  He nearly died at the surprise!  (Thanks for being part of my cunning plan Gary!!)
Perfect honeymoon, perfect catamaran, perfect guidance, perfect beginning of our marriage.  Thank you Razzle Dazzle, Gary and Tiana.

Thanks to Gary and Tiana for giving us this wonderful opportunity to sail their boat around the Whitsundays.  We found the boat well equipped and beautifully maintained.  She sailed beautifully and Gary’s daily advice helped us explore the many islands.  Having Gary share his experience and expertise with us made our holiday a great adventure.  We were “living the dream”.  We plan to come back!!

What a “hullaballoo” we had together.  Thank you for the wonderful days in the islands, the great meals, fabulous child support, a clean boat in a perfect condition.
The whales, the squid, fishing in Nara Inlet, touching the Wrasse will stay in our memory forever.  You made it happen Tiana and Gary.  You were always open for our requests and wishes.  It really made a difference!
Our best wishes to you, the Sanche Family.

What can we say except a huge “AMAZING EXPERIENCE ABOARD RAZZLE DAZZLE”. Thanks paradise! Each day was a mix of wonderment and pleasure amongst our ocean friends.  ‘Spoon and fork feeding’ the bat fish was my personal highlight!
Thank you Gary and Tiana for injecting your warmth, kindness and thoughtfulness into everyday for us, to experience the joys and the colourful coral reefs and inhabitants.
It was a trip I will never forget.  I didn’t want to get off this beautiful cat.  Thank you.  Thank you!
And special thanks to Eric for making this possible  for us.

What we dreamed about was not nearly as wonderful as our time with Gary and Tiana on Razzle Dazzle.  The Whitsunday Islands are truly amazing, but it was the company of good friends and new friends which made this the holiday of a lifetime.
Thank you for sharing the special places you have found, and for taking care of us like family.

On behalf of our group, it was left to me to sort out a yacht to sail the Whitsundays.  From the first contact with Tiana and Gary, I found them exemplary to deal with.  They just wanted to make our holiday perfect, and went over and above their needs to ensure we made the right decisions for us.  This made the decision to go with Razzle Dazzle an easy one!!
The boat seems to be known around Airlie as a very well maintained vessel.  It was easy to sail (my first time skippering a bareboat), and the ‘walk through’ and briefing gave us even more confidence to tackle the waters.
Please can you take Razzle Dazzle to the Greek Islands so I can charter her for our next sailing experience?  We will be back!!  Thank you …..

The last 10 days have been a wonderful family sailing experience.  The boat, being so well appointed, and both Gary and Tiana so friendly and helpful, have made our time in the Whitsundays an absolute pleasure.
The kids had a great time swimming, snorkelling and catching the odd fish.  The trampolines were fantastic to sit on whilst sailing and star gazing with the kids at night.  Thanks again …….. See ya next time!  xx

Dear Tiana and Gary,

Thanks so much for letting us use your beautifully prepared boat – we all had such a great time on what essentially became our floating palace.  It was by far the best equipped boat that we have ever chartered anywhere around the world, in Jane’s or my experience!  Everyone had a great time, and most of all, it was a great experience for our kids, who are now craving for more!!  Dare I say it, but I think I have been converted to a Cat man (for a cruising holiday anyway).
P.S. We saw Razzle Dazzle at Blue Pearl Bay (on Tuesday 23rd Sept) with everyone basking on the deck.  Once again, I was feeling quite envious!!!
Warm Regards,
Kim Le Gras

I was the only novice and have had a very exciting series of firsts!  First time on a boat with sails, first time in cabin bunks ……. and what an excellent place to come and experience this!
My first snorkelling included touching a turtle, and I cuddled a koala on Hamilton Island.  We had excellent weather – more motoring than sailing – and enjoyed Nara Inlet, returning here 3 nights.  The cave paintings and hilltop display worth the steps!!!
We never mastered the oven, but Razzle Dazzle was otherwise well appointed and we felt well supported by Gary and Tiana, even if we were anchoring frequently at the 4pm sched call!
What is exciting for me is that I will look forward to my next sailing holiday rather than worrying about it – thank you to my more experienced crew!

What a beautiful cruise!  We’ll never forget these holidays!  Thank you Gary and Tiana, your vessel is very comfortable and everything was perfect.
We enjoyed more specifically Whitehaven Beach and the north of Hayman Island, so wild, and Langford.  We even had the chance to see a whale and some turtles!
Snorkelling in these waters has been a rich and unforgettable experience, with a lot of different corals and fishes.
Has some amazing sunsets!
Thank you Gary and Tiana for your welcome and your kindness!  Thanks to you, we had a relaxing and safe trip that we will never forget!

Tiana and Gary, there are no words to truly describe how amazing the 10 days on Razzle have been.
The snorkelling was spectacular.  Love the ‘fishies’ swimming with the wrasse.  This was the highlight!
I can’t thank Gary enough for his patience and his wonderful sailing ability.  I have no doubt this was so relaxing for us because of Gary.
Thank you for your company.  Tiana, you are a beautiful friend.  Spending 10 days together is no mean feat, but I can honestly say I could spend more with you.  Thank you so much for having us on your boat.
Love Bernadette and the Scalliwags.

Thanks for the amazing experience from the various reefs, Whitehaven, Solway (my favourite), Hamilton and Mantaray Bay.  Your good will, tolerance and company made the trip truly memorable, and for this, I thank you.  God bless.

Happy to report that NO travel calms (tablets) were needed!!!
After growing up spending my family holidays at Hydeaway Bay, we never adventured past Gloucester, Rattray or Saddleback Islands.
This is a trip we will both cherish.

Razzle Dazzle, without doubt, is the best boat in the Whitsundays!  Despite a few 20 – 25 knot days, we enjoyed another memorable holiday.  Second time on Razzle Dazzle – 2 of many we suspect!!!  We have sailed Whitsundays 10 times over 18 years, but for the first time, we snorkelled and dived at Mantaray Bay (thank you Tiana!!!)

Once again, boat has not disappointed, alcohol has flowed, scenery perfect ….. what a perfect reset button for a less than perfect year.

Thank you Gary and Tiana!  See you next year!!!

Wonderful company and beautiful boat.  Fabulous scenery.  A lifelong dream fulfilled.

Thank you for a great week.  Enjoyed the personal touch; just great.  See you another day.

Great smooth sailing.  Absolutely loved it.  It’s a once in a lifetime thing and we got the best boat.  THANK YOU!!!

Wow! What a holiday!  Razzle Dazzle was lovely to sail and live on for our short stay in the Whitsundays.  The beaches, the wildlife, the weather – ALL amazing.

We visited Nara Inlet, Butterfly Bay Macona Inlet and Tongue Bay – each a different experience. Hill Inlet and Whitehave were amazing with perfect conditions.

Our teenagers and toddlers had a wonderful time thanks to your thoughful additions of games and books – a very personal touch.  Thank you Gary and Tiana.

On the 27th August, 2012, we became re-united with ‘Razzle Dazzle’ again after 3 (long) years.  With enough food and grog to sail around the world, we head out of Airlie Beach with rumours of whale activity and great weather on the horizon.

Our first night takes us to the beautiful Butterfly Bay where we pick up a mooring and enjoy the serenity and snorkelling around the area.  Hayman Island for lunch on day 2, with again, fantastic weather.  Luncheon Bay is our resting place for the evening.  We awake to the sounds of a whale in the bay!

On the journey to Whitehaven, finally whales are spotted, and as they play around in the bay, we circle, taking some amazing photos!

Tongue Bay provides a fantastic spot to anchor with easy access to Whitehaven.  We spend 2 nights at Tongue Bay and then make our way to Whitehaven for the remainder of our journey, soaking up the sun and beauty of Whitehaven.  Absolutely stunning!!

After travelling from the cold of Melbourne’s winter, ‘Razzle Dazzle’ has provided the most stunning, relaxing, picturesque holiday.

Thanks to Gary and Tiana for their hospitality!  I’m sure we will see ‘Razzle Dazzle’ again!

Tiana and Gary, thank you very much for entrusting your magnificent “Razzle Dazzle” to us.  It really was an amazing and new experience.  We have truly had a wonderful and exciting time; a holiday to remember.

Also, thank you again for the extra night on board and for taking Tom to the airport.  It was greatly appreciated.

We hope to have the opportunity in the future to explore the Whitsundays again on “Razzle Dazzle”.

All the best for the future,
Georgie, Marty, Tom, Laurel and Glenn.

We had 5 great days on Razzle Dazzle, a wonderful catamaran, and enjoyed very much the beautiful Whitsunday Islands.  Langford Reef and Mantaray Bay were particularly interesting for snorkelling and watching the great variety of fish and the beautiful corals.

A special THANK YOU to Tiana and Gary for their personal touch and their very friendly and supportive attitude – reachable 24 hours every day!

We can really recommend Razzle Dazzle – it is a perfect boat – very well maintained by Gary and Tiana – and it is equipped with all it needs to make a wonderful vacation here at the Whitsundays.

We are very glad to have met Tiana and Gary as wonderful hosts and very friendly people.  Many thanks again.  Heizliche n Dank!

Words cannot describe the fabulous 7 days we enjoyed making ‘Razzle Dazzle’ our home.  We could not have asked for more perfect sailing conditions.  Brisk northerlies for the first half, southerlies to complete the journey.

The amazing snorkelling at Mantaray, Cateran and Blue Pearl Bays, Whitehaven Beach and One Foot Island were some of the highlights of our trip.  This was an unforgettable family holiday with friends and our new friends, ‘Blue’ and ‘Jonathon’ the Batfish.

Big thanks to Gary and Tiana for their special touches and contagious enthusiasm, and Mike for his ‘briefing 4 dummies’!

We had the best sailing holiday we have ever experienced. The weather was great, the company fantastic but the standout was Razzle Dazzle. It is the first time in over 10 charters that Rashelle and I have experienced a trip where everything worked! No BBQ issues, no rigging problems, no anchor windlass fears, no hull leaks and don’t mention
the toilets!!

The boat was perfect and sooooooo fast!

Also, I would like to commend your positive attitude and friendly welcome that you extended when we arrived. I know you have just started in the charter business, but please don’t change; it’s a major difference between yourselves and the other companies. Mike was great too…..very entertaining!

You helped to make Tony and Piette’s 18th anniversary something they will never forget, and after hearing their comments, I have no doubt we will be back next year……..at least.

Thank you so much Tiana and Gary! Dean and I had the most wonderful time, the experience of a lifetime! Dean’s ‘Dream Holiday’ for the last 10yrs was everything he hoped for and them some! We were so exhausted when we got back to dry land but worth every minute of it! Razzle Dazzle was amazing xxx

Hi Robyn and Wayne,

I would like to thank you very, very much for our wonderful experience on “Mango Tango”!  We had the most amazing time!  After my initial nerves about being responsible for such a magnificent boat, we settled in and became very comfortable with the whole boating experience… the only mistake we made was not keeping the Mango Tango for 10 days like the Lindholms.

Anyway, the whole trip was a huge success and we are still suffering from withdrawal symptoms … Melbourne is cold and horrid at the moment…. I just keep looking at our photos! Thank you again for trusting us with your beautiful boats and making our whole trip possible by being so helpful.

Kind regards – Wendy Wunsch

Dear Tiana,

I was so touched to see the cake, candle and bottle of champagne for Richards ‘s bithday! He was really thrilled and we all enjoyed celebrating with him. Thank you so much for your kind thought. It was a wonderful week, and even though I did not get to Whitehaven Beach with the others on the last day, I do not feel as if I missed out on what was a truly wonderful experience. Many thanks to you all for making it such a great holiday.

All the best - Revle Elks

We had a wonderful week on board this boat! Lots of snorkelling at Butterfly Bay, Border Island & Hayman Island. Saw heaps of turtles at Tongue Bay and did a fantastic walk from there to Whitehaven Beach. Thanks Wayne & Robyn for all your effort and to Mike, our briefer, for his invaluable sailing knowledge. To say we had a great time is an understatement. We will be back!

Our last night aboard our home of the last 10 nights. Very tempting to head south and just keep going. What an unforgettable holiday; 100′s of litres of sunblock, many laughs, plenty of food and drinks and an outstanding crew! The wildlife both on shore and in the ocean was absolutley amazing. We will all leave with such awesome memories of our holiday. We will definitely be back. Thank you Wayne & Robyn for entrusting your beautiful boat with us. Happy sailing to the fortunate future people that charter aboard Razzle Dazzle!

Dear Robyn and Wayne,

Thanks for a great time with “Razzle Dazzle” – enclosed a couple of shots for your interest. We have come back to pretty average weather down here – but it sounds like it’s reverted to rain up there. Have some great shots of fish we couldn’t catch and plenty of lazing around on the deck. Will go through our photo shots better over time.  The entire crew loved the experience.  Thanks again for your assistance in all matters relating to the trip; we’d love to come back sometime.  It was something special.

Stu and Jeneane.

Hi Robyn & Wayne,

Just a quick thank you from Caz, Ben, Roz, Sam & myself for the fantastic week we had on the beautiful “Mango Tango”. We will be talking about our holiday in the Whitsundays for years to come & I’m sure you will see us again in the future. Please say hi to Peter from all of us, & we wish you well for the rest of 2010.

Best regards,

Dear Wayne & Robyn,

Finally getting around to thanking you for our wonderful break away with great friends.

“Mango Tango” was the envy of all our other fellow sailing friends & deservedly so too. This gorgeous catamaran catered for all our needs & more. It is a first class vessel with  great facilities throughout.

The galley was highly functional & well planned with all appliances, roomy fridge/freezers, etc down to the utensils & cleaning stock thoughtfully supplied. We wanted for nothing. It’s spacious & well designed cockpit was the perfect place for us all to recharge,  recap & refresh. All our cabins were private & very comfortable with ensuite/bathroom well stocked & clean as a new pin. The roomy saloon contained wonderful little luxuries & thoughtful surprises from the pop-up LCD TV to a great selection of board games & DVDs stashed inside one of many cupboards.

Safety onboard our boat & for it’s passengers were clearly an important consideration too. A great collection of safety equipment included wet weather gear, torches & flares, a well stocked First Aid Kit, many clear, easy to read manuals & charts, three communication systems, including a satellite phone, easy to use modern electronic instruments etc & everything in top working order.

“Mango Tango” was beautifully presented & a joy to sail. It will remain ‘right up there’ with the fondest memories of a truly relaxing & fabulously enjoyable holiday around some of Australia’s most idyllic settings.

Thankyou both for all your hard work, dedication & attention to detail. This clearly demonstrates your obvious desire to ensure your charters are of such a continuingly high & professional standard.

Kindest regards,

Chris & Lyn Dornauf

Hi Robyn and Wayne,

Well, finally I am actually sending some photos of our second fabulous trip aboard Razzle Dazzle!

Looking at the photos again tonight makes me relive the fabulous time we had …….hopefully we’ll be back again for a third time in 2011.

There is absolutely NOTHING more relaxing than sailing around the beautiful Whitsundays on Razzle Dazzle – an amazing boat, we LOVE it!

Hope you are both well and business is good.

Kind regards,

Sue and Brett Farrar

We recently chartered Mango Tango for a 7 night cruise around the Whitsunday’s, and the experience from start to finish was exceptional.

The boat was extremely comfortable for 6 adults with 3 double bedrooms and bathrooms, a fully equipped galley, a large saloon area and a large rear deck area with BBQ. So well equipped, even as far as charts, wet weather gear, some DVD’s and board games for entertainment at night – the only items we had to supply was the food and drinks.

A very professional and informative briefing was given at the start to explain all of the boat’s controls and instruments, as well as a run over of the charts to explain ideal locations to visit and dangers to be aware of.

I believe the sign of a great holiday experience is when you can say that you have had a great time, it filled all of your expectations and that you would recommend it to everybody. Our time on Mango Tango and the Whitsunday’s certainly meets all of these criteria’s, and hats off to the management of Whitsunday Luxury Catamarans for making all of this happen. All I can say is – go for it.

We have had  extraordinary luck in discovering Whitsunday Luxury Catamaran Charter Service .

We have had multiple charters in the Whitsundays  on the magnificent  Fusion 40 catamaran ‘Razzle Dazzle’.

This yacht is an absolute credit to the owners, Wayne and Robyn Horne. Their attention to detail in presenting this superb vessel has enabled us and many of our friends to enjoy the ultimate sailing experience in the Whitsunday Islands .

Robyn and Wayne are extremely friendly and generous with their knowledge and help .They have provided a very professional and personal service for us over many years of chartering.

Razzle Dazzle is bristling with all mod. cons, it is a dream to handle , and is a wonderful platform for an unforgettable holiday afloat.

Many thanks to Wayne and Robyn and congratulations for the standard you have achieved.

Thank you very much for the use of your boat. We go and have experienced a lot of holidays in all different areas of the country but I must say, the holiday on the boat in the Whitsundays was simply awesome and as a family, it was brilliant.

Thanks again and we will be in touch.

An amazing experience for our families.

The kids will never forget – the snorkeling was great, turtles, dolphins, sun & the amazing sailing experience.

This was our first time sailing and what a blast! Unreal (think I said that 27 times), definitely worth it and every day was a different memory to last a lifetime. The kids were never bored and the sailing and marine life brilliant – Thanks Razzle Dazzle!

…the next people that charter Razzle Dazzle – we hope you have just as much fun as we did!

Thanks again,

What an amazing family holiday!

The boat was beautiful, the weather was fantastic and the sights were stunning!! We saw heaps of whales and turtles, and the snorkeling lived up to it’s expectations. We thought about telling our families that we got kidnapped so we could stay longer, but unfortunately – work duties called…

Thanks for everything and we will see you again…

Most enjoyable fabulous sailing in various conditions, wonderful snorkeling, good food and wine.

Great boat & super service. Thanks a million Robyn & Wayne.

We were the other family travelling with the Bowens. We thought 8 people (4 adults, 4 Kids) on a yacht for a week might be a squash. But this luxury cat never made us feel that way.

We sailed up here in the 1980s but that was on a monohull.  These big cats are certainly the way to go. The snorkeling has been better than we remembered & the weather not quite as good, (tho we can’t complain about the 3 sunny days).  Our most challenging day was sailing thru Solway pass into sheets of driving rain and then striking a big swell on the bottom of Whitsunday Island. This was the only time we felt a bit seasick.

Thanks Robyn & Wayne and “Razzle Dazzle” for everything – we’ll recommend you to all our friends in cold Canberra.

What a wonderful way to start the summer vacation.

Second visit to Australia – it just gets better & better. Memorable trip with my dear friends, beautiful scenery, amazing double headed parrot fish, loved mealtimes. Razzle Dazzle is a great boat – actually bigger than my apartment in Tokyo. A trip of a lifetime what a privilege.

“Mark’s Fantasy 50th Cruise” had been a long time in the planning so we had high expectations, but “Razzle Dazzle” (Fusion 40) was everything we had hoped and the holiday was a grand success.

Cath and I had a great time for the first week of quiet relaxation followed by an equally fun week of partying with “the crew” on board.

The quintessential moment was one sunny day mid trip, under sail in the Passage, with a cold beer in one hand and the helm in the other. You would have to do it to understand it.

We would really like to thankyou for the way the boat was prepared and the great service you gave us throughout. It was first class and easy to recommend.

Regards
Mark Elliott

“Razzle Dazzle” (Fusion 40); what a fitting name for such a fantastic vessel. She is definitely worthy of being in the fleet of cats that will offer far more for your holiday dollar than just about anything floating on the beautiful Whitsunday waters.

We had a week, but wish we had a month. We are counting the days until we come back for a longer stay on RazDaz in 2008.

We had the most awesome family holiday on “Razzle Dazzle” (Fusion 40). We have chartered on two other occasions on different cats but Razzle Dazzle is as close to perfect as you will get anywhere in the Whitsundays.

We loved the sailing -because it actually sails at a decent speed. The kids gave the audio system a solid workout and everyone (we have 5 kids) loved the space. Razzle Dazzle is sparklingly clean and has everything on board in working order that you could possibly want. It’s not just another hire boat, it’s obviously well cared for by it’s fastidious owners. We’ll be back!

“Purrfection” (Seawind 38) We returned Purrfection yesterday with heavy, but extremely happy hearts!  We so enjoyed her, and the week exploring the islands. You were absolutely right: she was exactly what we are looking for in a charter boat. We had the best
holiday EVER!   Thanks again for your help! You were just fantastic, and we will definitely recommend and contact you again if we or anyone else is planning a trip to Whitsundays.  All the best,

Valentines day … unfortunately leaving tody after a fantastic week. Started off with 1 ½ days of bad weather but ended up perfect. “Razzle Dazzle” (Fusion 40) could not have been better; the outside deck was most enjoyable.  Our relatives from the Hampshire England found the week to be a real buzz and will go home with a lifetime of memories.

It was good to be able to meet you and Wayne at Hamilton Island on the return of “Razzle Dazzle” (Fusion 40) on Wed 10th October.

Thank you for all the little extra things that you did to make our week on Razzle Dazzle such an enjoyable time. Your time and efforts were most appreciated.

You certainly have a luxury cat to be very proud of; especially Razzle’s performance ….. I just could not get over the wind efficiency of 7 knots boat speed in 8.5 knots of wind.
