Simon and Skye from D’ALBORA Marinas recently boarded My Way, the 35 metre super yacht berthed at D’ALBORA Marinas, The Spit to meet full-time skipper Neville Hunt.
Boarding a vessel that is about ten times bigger than the average Sydney apartment, we immediately wanted to know what the specs and features were of My Way.
The boat was built in the 1980’s and refurbished in 1997, when sold to it its current owner and interestingly, has never been out of Australian waters. The boat’s 30,000 litre fuel capacity and 10,000 water capacity means it can be out to sea for up to three weeks without docking and the owners favourites destinations are the Whitsundays and yearly trips to the Torres Strait for fishing.
Of course the sheer size of the boat isn’t exactly ideal for game fishing or water sports, so there are other options for guests to get out on the water – including a board 22 foot Boston Wailer which travels up to 40 knots plus another Tender on board. Neville sometimes charters impressive 40-50 footers for the serious game fishing guests and when it’s time to get under the water, there’s the dive gear including compressor, underwater scooters and the sundeck which turns into a pool.
My Way caters for up to ten guests with five generous state rooms all with ensuites. The super yacht has a large (really large) lounge and dining area with adjoining fully fitted out bar and full kitchen which leads to dry and refrigeration storage underneath.
The deck off the living area is spacious, leading down to a wet dock and the super yachts ‘tenders’, but it’s upstairs which really sells the outdoor space of My Way. A huge sundeck contains an equally impressive wet bar and bbq area and a further sundeck on the very top of the boat offers views unequal to none.
