Integrity hosts owners on a Moreton Bay adventure

Integrity Motor Yachts 440 Sedan ferries the crew in comfort to the Little Ships Club Integrity Motor Yachts http://www.integrityboats.com.au
The team from Integrity Motor Yachts has just completed a four day owner trip taking in all that Moreton Bay has to offer. Ten boats joined the touring fleet of displacement cruisers departing Sanctuary Cove Marina and heading north for a tour through Moreton Bay and up to Tangalooma.

After an evening on the marina the flotilla navigated their way to Horseshoe Bay on Peel Island for their first night at anchor.

Fresh prawns, local bread and icy cold Coronas were delivered to each boat for a relaxed afternoon overlooking the bay. Guests were then invited to the beach at Horseshoe Bay for an evening BBQ and light music, with a high tide and vivid sunset creating a beautiful backdrop.


The next morning the flotilla departed for Tangalooma for their second night at anchor and an afternoon exploring the wrecks and marine life that abounds. After an early afternoon walk to the Tangalooma Resort, the Integrity crew enjoyed a delightful buffet dinner prior to experiencing the magic of feeding the local dolphins from the beach.

Day three saw the flotilla head south through the Rous Channel to their evening anchorage at Myora near Dunwich on Stradbroke Island. The crew spent the afternoon relaxing in readiness for the inaugural Integrity Olympics held at the Little Ships Club at Dunwich, a great little piece of paradise with amazing bay views.

After hearty competition the winners of the mini golf, bocce and quoits were crowned, with the presentation dinner and dance lasting well into the evening.


The final day took the fleet south through the Caniapa Passage and down through some of the narrow windy waters of the northern Broadwater, which at high tide are just stunning. The fleet then peeled off to their home destinations after a great four days of boating. And how do some of the owners feel about their inaugural trip?

'We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, but the best thing about being on the Integrity rally is that it takes the worry out of boating knowing that someone is close at hand to lend a help if you need it. It is hard to pick any one particular moment, but the beach BBQ, bucket of beautiful prawns and the Corona’s takes some beating. The fancy dress and games were a lot of fun. My body aches all over, but hey, would do it all again tomorrow', commented Integrity Motor Yachts 380 Sedan owner Russell Dahl.
