|About Our Boat||
We pride ourselves on our professional service and yes we believe we have the ultimate vessel for your next event on the water, the Lady Grace is a superb, clean, huge, modern vessel which actually is bigger and better in person than in the photos, we love our Lady Grace and she is looked after with TLC. So please be rest assured that when you book your function with us that you are receiving the best service and the best charter boat in Perth and Fremantle.
As the Lady Grace is a very versatile charter vessel, we can operate our north west live board charters from the Abrolhos, Shark Bay and the Montebello Islands and in Perth we offer Swan River Cruises, Carnac and Rottnest Island Boat charters. In order to operate these charters effectively and professionally we set the boat up differently for each season. When the boat returns to Perth for the Summer season in November, the boat is taken out of the water completely spring cleaned and all the live board fittings are removed and the boat is transformed into the river cruise mode.
Again in March before the Lady Grace heads off for the north west live-aboard season, all the river cruise fittings are removed and the live aboard fixtures are loaded on. THE LADY GRACE REALLY IS THE ULTIMATE LIVE ABOARD VESSEL • Length 20 Metres • 1D 80plus 3 crew • 2B 18 plus 3 • Engine 1000hp MAN • Fuel 5000lts • Water 1000lt holding tank plus 2000lt per day freshwater marker • 2 x bathrooms and toilets with hot water showers at home • 2 x gensets • Full gallery sink, microwave, fridge, freezer, cupboards with plenty of bench space • Air conditioned • Seatel satellite TV system on back deck • Commercial BBQ • CD Stereo with IPOD docking • Latest navigation electronics • Cabin one - 5 x single beds • Cabin two - 5 single beds • Cabin three - 2 x double beds • Plus for liveaboard configuration and extra 4 single beds • Large cabin with lounge area • Massive flybridge seats 20 • Large deck area with 2 metre wide transom door onto large swim platform • Large deck area with tables and seats • Back deck fully covered.
|Why Choose Us||
Apache Charters is a family run business and all the family gets involved.
