MV Minke

Minke is a 39.4ft Assegai, custom built express-style sports cruiser launched in October 2017

Purpose built and designed to support M.Y Beluga and offer a significant increase in options for our guests.

Minke travels primarily with Beluga as a fishing, diving and recreational addition to the fleet and has the ability to transfer guests quickly and efficiently between port/vessels.

Minke acts as a ‘day boat’ and is also available for private day trips in Port Douglas, accommodating up to 8 guests plus crew with a maximum operational cruising speed of 27 knots ensuring you get to your destination in record time!

Contact us for information on our day trip offerings including reef fishing, light tackle and sports-fishing, guided snorkelling at the outer reef, diving and PADI certification as well as leisure and island trips.

 


 

Minke  boasts a Seakeeper stabilization gyro which limits sea sickness and wave motion!

She also employs the Twindisc Express Joystick system which smoothly and simultaneously actuates and controls engines, transmissions, propellers and thrusters, which can hold the vessel in any fixed position, crab the boat diagonally or straight sideways and rotate it 360° on its axis.
