About the Book
My husband, John and I designed and coordinated construction of Sydney Sundancer to incorporate the luxury and comfort of a motor vessel combined with the grace and serenity of a sailing yacht. When we embarked on this project in 1983, we had two goals. Firstly, to offer live aboard expedition cruises in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park visiting remote and remarkable locations during the dry season in tropical north Queensland. This coincides with the period that humpback whales have migrated from Antarctica to give birth to their young. Secondly, during the remainder of the year, to conduct cruises on Sydney Harbour for corporate entertaining, weddings, birthdays, marriage proposals and in fact any kind of celebration. In both locations, we take pleasure in offering our guests not only the ultimate in luxury, comfort and space, but as owner operators ensure great attention to warm and welcoming hospitality, mouth-watering meals and fine wines.
