Great Barrier Reef Liveaboard Cruises


Spirit of Freedom

The Spirit of Freedom was custom built for long range cruising and to optimise the sea conditions of the Coral Sea region. Design features such as the specific length of the vessel, combined with electronic stabilizers ensure maximum sea keeping capability for greatest passenger comfort. Heavy duty medium rev marine diesel engines provide fuel efficiency, reliability, and low vibration and sound emission. In 2008 a state of the art air-conditioning system, specifically suited to tropical conditions was fitted, enabling fail-safe air-conditioning throughout the vessel. In addition to holding 20,000 lites of fresh water, the Spirit of Freedom carries on board fresh water makers, generating up to 9,000 litres per day, which ensure a continuous supply of fresh water in medium use situations.

The Spirit of Freedom is kept in current 1B Queensland survey to 260 miles offshore range, which includes all Coral Sea Reefs & Islands.
