Sailaway blank

Built by Lagoon in Bordeaux France, Sailaway has 2 identical Lagoon 500s. Now at home in Port Douglas, Tropical North Queensland Sailaway undertook the longest delivery in the world to become the first large sailing cat to arrive by sea, on her own bottom in Australia.

Sailaway’s Lagoon 500 Catamaran is a truly spectacular vessel. She moves smoothly and comfortably across the ocean, offering our guests a unique Great Barrier Reef experience unmatched by other operators. Demand for this particular model was so high that it sold out 18 months before the Lagoon factory even launched their first boat.

Sailaway can accommodate up to 40 guests. A private charter of Sailaway has been host to many special family occasions to celebrate events such as weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries.
