Moreton Bay Holidays Afloat

This piece of editorial was published in Queensland Fishing Monthly’s September edition, and was run alongside a full page advert the client had bought. I went out to interview the client personally, and did a tour of the impressive marina, which offered a range of boats for hire.


Hiring a yacht for a holiday on the water can be an expensive affair. Add to this the travel usually involved to get to the places where these services are available, and you’ve spent a lot of extra money, and lost many hours as well.

With Moreton Bay Holidays Afloat, you’ll be able to tailor your own holiday on the water! Whether it be kayaking the magnificent Boondall Wetlands or sailing a 12.6m yacht in Moreton Bay’s outer islands, the team will be able to get you started – and all from Brisbane!

With a huge range of options available at the marina on the banks of Cabbage Tree Creek in Deagon, there’s something to suit all budgets. Why not get two families together and share the cost? Being based in Deagon in Brisbane’s northeast, Brisbane holidaymakers won’t lose any time traveling. Let’s take a look at what’s available!



Starting with the biggest and grandest, there are three catamarans – a 12.6m and an 11.6m sail, which each sleep 10, and a 12m powered, which sleeps eight. All three cats have a full galley, and can be taken out independently, following a briefing and practise run (a boating license is preferred, but not required). Alternatively, the team can provide skippered charters! Skippered charters are popular for work trips and other functions. There’s also free parking at the marina – one of the many ways in which you’ll save money!

Fibreglass half cabs

In the marina, you’ll also see two marvellous 17ft fibreglass half cabs, which are also available for hire. These shaded boats are particularly good for self-drive day trips fishing in fishing areas or exploring the Boondall Wetlands.

BBQ pontoon boat

Just looking for a lazy day trip out on sheltered calm waters with some good friends? If so, you’ll be pleased to know that a 6m BBQ pontoon boat is another option! Again, a license is not required to operate this vessel.


Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, there’s 14 kayaks available for hire! Whether you want paddle through calm sheltered waters, or take them out with one of the catamarans – the choice is yours! The kayaks are very easy to use, with some kitted out for fishing!


On site and managed by the same people at the marina in Deagon is H2O Marine Services! There’s a slipway that can retrieve boats up to 16m, with dry-docking an option. There you can do work on your boat yourself, or pay for one of the team to complete any work you have in mind. H20 marine Services do engines, electrical work, general repairs, and much more.
