You Can Now Hire a Pet-Friendly Picnic Boat to Sail Through the Gold Coast
Denmark company GoBoat has just launched its fleet of easy-to-operate BYO picnic boats on the Gold Coast.
Southeast Queenslanders now have another excuse to hit the water, with GoBoat splashing into the region.
The Denmark-born company has been busy launching its eco-friendly picnic boats in cities all over Europe, as well as in Canberra and Melbourne — and, as announced late in 2019, it has just made its Gold Coast debut. Punters now have a fun new way to cruise through Sanctuary Cove, the Coomera River and the Goldie's canals.
Aimed at making the whole boating caper more accessible for everyday folk, the Scandinavian-designed vessels are slow-moving, a breeze to operate and don't require a boating licence, making for some fun, fuss-free sailing sessions. In a win for the planet, they also run on silent, pollution-free, electric engines, and are crafted from a mix of reclaimed timber and recycled PET bottles.
Each of the contemporary GoBoats clocks in at 18-feet long, boasting a central picnic table with room for eight people (and all the necessary snacks and booze). And despite what you might be thinking, they're even affordable enough to fit your budget — simply BYO food and drinks, find enough eager sailors to jump aboard and a GoBoat session will you less than $13 per person, per hour. That's $99 hourly in total.
GoBoat's Queensland fleet set sail out of Sanctuary Cove Marina. Oh, and did we mention they're pet-friendly? Surely you've got a very good boy who deserves a river jaunt this summer.
