Adventure Ship, Flamingo Bay has departed the Gold Coast Seaway, heading south for a significant period in slips at Hardwoods in Yamba in preparation for being handed over to her new owner, after the much-anticipated Auction, Monday 7 October at Southport Yacht Club.

As well as all normal survey requirements being checked for 2B survey, applying new anti-foul and anodes, the out of water survey inspection, the eight-year survey, will involve:
* Hull thickness- steel penetration
* Inspect all tanks
* Pull the shaft
* Sea worthiness
* Life saving appliances
* Fire fighting
* Safety management

On her journey south last Sunday, Flamingo Bay passed pods of dolphins and whales.

The auction is already attracting interest and enquiries from around the globe. Several parties have already registered to bid.

Flamingo Bay is truly unique. There was only one ever constructed. Built by Belliard Creighton for the Belgian government in 1956, the product of two years planning and designing and two years construction to the highest specifications, Flamingo Bay was originally built for coastal patrols and rescues in the treacherous North Sea.

As its proud owner, David Tomlinson, will tell you, he has over-equipped her with the latest navigational technology and systems for self-sufficiency, ensuring she’s up to the unlimited usage her new owner may have in mind.

She would make a great explorer vessel, a whale watching tourism boat, hospitality for events or ‘trip of a lifetime’ getaway craft for the discerning buyer.

Full of character and retaining the original Flemish features such as timber panelling, teak decks, beautiful finishes and attention to detail, she also boasts air conditioning throughout, diesel/electric power, water maker, plenty of electricity, diving compressor, crane and helipad facilities on board.

There are 11 cabins, with 20 berths total. Each cabin has its own air conditioning system, bedside reading lamps, externally sullied fresh air, intercom, and remote controlled TV- an audio /video network circulates the ship. There are four showers and two heads and above all, ample space for entertaining, savouring the views and relishing the lifestyle provided by this captivating vessel.

Under the experienced gavel of auctioneer, Colin Banks, the Auction will be held 7 October 2013, 1100hrs EST at the Southport Yacht Club, Main Beach, Gold Coast, Australia.
