Maritimo Muster to head up Queensland coast

Sixteen big luxury cruisers will make an impressive sight heading north up the Queensland coast when the second annual Maritimo Muster gets underway on September 21.

The Maritimo Muster is an owners’ rally designed to bring together like-minded people to enjoy their boats in the environment for which they are designed – long-distance luxury cruising.

This year’s Muster will start at Maritimo headquarters at Hope Harbour on the Gold Coast and travel as far north as Port Hinchinbrook – a distance of over 600 nautical miles.


As part of the Muster, the organisers have included a stopover at Redcliffe to view the opening round of the Offshore Powerboat races.

Taking a total of 14 days, the Muster will visit such exotic destinations as The Great Sandy Straits, The Keppel Islands, Hamilton Island and the stunning Whitsundays, Townsville and Magnetic Island, then onto Palm Islands and the Hinchinbrook Channel.

Commenting on the popularity of this year’s Muster, Maritimo Marketing Director Luke Durman said: 'The Muster is designed to get people out enjoying their boats, we have a very experienced guide who will lead the event and we emphasise fun and safety.'

Mr Durman went on to say that the Muster gives owners confidence to travel further and enjoy their boats more: 'After last year’s Muster, some owners contacted us and said that it had opened up new experiences for them and given them the skills to get the best out of their Maritimos.'

Muster leader Greg Alward said that the marinas and anchorages up and down the Queensland Coast had been very keen to have the Muster back after its success last year: 'The Muster has been well received by the Queensland coastal communities and we’re looking forward to getting back there and meeting the friends we made last year,' he said.
