‘Shore Thing’ is a purpose built, Roger Hill designed and beautifully appointed, live-aboard sailing catamaran, 51 feet in length and 27 feet in width. Being a catamaran she is extremely comfortable and stable, both at sea and at anchor.

With a shallow draft ‘Shore Thing’ is the ideal vessel for accessing the many spectacular shallow inner reef lagoons of the Ningaloo Reef, which provide calm anchorage in all weather conditions. We can take you to places and show you things no one else can!

Shore Thing boasts an elevated helm, with plenty of seating alongside the skipper and the perfect viewpoint to observe passing marine life and a bird’s eye view of the natural wonders of the Ningaloo Reef. Relax on the impressive forward deck and trampoline area, lazing in the shade of the sails on one of the bean bags or day bed. The saloon area has ample room to seat all guests in comfort and the large back deck area is well shaded and a lovely area for alfresco dining.

Accommodation Options:

Accommodation on board has been designed to cater for small numbers to ensure your unique experience, with a maximum of 8 – 10 guests.

There are 5 toilets and 5 showers on board, with beautifully designed cabins for privacy and comfort. Top and side hatches in every cabin ensure fresh air circulation and natural light. Drift off peacefully with the comfort of luxuriously soft bamboo sheets.

Stateroom King Cabin – Private Cabin featuring private ensuite with separate toilet and shower. Bedding can be configured as a King bed or Twin beds, or even a double bed plus side bunk to cater for 2 adults & 1 child.

Deluxe Double Cabin – Private Cabin featuring private facilities just outside your cabin. Bedding can be configured as a double bed only.


There are 240v power outlets in all cabins for guests, as well as in the saloon area. Power is generated by a system of Solar Panels, maximising environmentally friendly and no-fuel power generation. We do also have a generator on board as a back up for those 5 cloudy days during the year (!) and is generally only required when filling dive tanks and making water, which we aim to use minimally and when least disruptive to guests. We have a full desalination unit on board ensuring fresh water showers and fresh water supply. 

Along with all of the snorkelling equipment provided, we also keep scuba diving tanks and weights on board, as well as 2 junior compressors, to ensure tanks are always full for diving activities.

On all tours we take along our sturdy tender vessel, the perfect platform to get you up close and into the shallow sandy lagoon areas for snorkelling in-between coral outcrops, or across to the beach for a stroll along the secluded coastline.
