Freedom 111 Whale Watch, 1990 Crowther 58 Commercial Vessel is on the market. This is a very unique opportunity for a motivated purchaser to acquire a very successful Commercial Charter Business currently operating out of Harvey Bay as a "Turnkey Going Concern".

Currently ranked number 1 on TripAdvisor for Hervey Bay whale watching and has been for the last 10 years. * Make the most of the vessel by fishing charters while the whales are away and maximise the full earning potential of this vessel. The Freedom Whale Watch vessel is a spacious and versatile catamaran used for various activities including whale watching, cruises, private charters and dive trips. "Freedom III" has a proud history, being previously owned by renowned documentary film producer Ben Cropp.

The vessel was purchased in April 2009 by the current owners who then embarked on an adventure of a lifetime, sailing "Freedom III" from its home port in Port Douglas to begin another chapter in "Freedom III" life as a Whale Watch Vessel, operating out of Hervey Bay Queensland. After completing a 3- month renovation, "Freedom III" was ready to take on its first season as Hervey Bay's luxury three quarter day whale watching vessel. After 14 years of ownership vendors have decided to have a sea change and move on to the next chapter of their lives.
