Maritime Survey Australia recently completed an in-water hull survey for the state-of-the-art hybrid cruise vessel Spirit of the Wild.
Owned and operated by Gordon River Cruises, the Spirit of the Wild is a 33.8 metre catamaran purpose-built for cruising in the sensitive environment of the UNESCO Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
While on the Gordon River her unique hybrid propulsion system allows for quiet cruising on electric motors, and with tannin-like finishes allowing her to almost vanish on the river she provides passengers with a truly immersive experience.
Her spectacular interior pays respect to the colours of the surrounding environment and features floor-to-ceiling glass maximising viewing from most parts of both interior decks.
The Main Deck offers Central and Window seating, as well as a galley, bar and viewing deck while the Premier Upper Deck offers angled leather recliners, Tasmanian Hydrowood finishes, a lounge area and a private viewing deck.
The viewing deck at the top of the vessel is open to all visitors and offers 360° views.
We highly recommend taking the opportunity to cruise this amazing river on this unique vessel. For more information visit www.gordonrivercruises.com.au.
Do you have a vessel that is due for its survey in accordance with its survey certificates?
Contact Maritime Survey Australia today to discuss your project requirements.
Our Marine Surveyors are accredited with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), members of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and members of the certifying authority of the International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS).
We believe we have the most competitive rates offering the best value to Victorian commercial vessel operators. The benefits of using Maritime Survey Australia ensure that the vessel operator has to engage with only one company. Unlike many of our competitors, our Surveyors are experienced Marine Engineers, Masters and Naval Architects accredited for ALL categories including periodic electrical and communication meaning you do not need to engage with a third party to complete the survey.
The survey is carried out accurately interpreting standards and guidelines, and applying rules and/or regulatory requirements.
The owner will be informed of any deficiencies discovered during the survey of a vessel that requires repair, replacement or action and will be recorded on a survey activity report, a copy of which will be given the owner or owner's representative at the time of the survey. We will remain impartial in all of our business dealings, and we will never conduct business in a manner which could place our business integrity or impartiality at risk or question.
