Coral Discoverer – Designed for the open seas
Launched in 2005, Coral Discoverer set a new benchmark standard of sophistication in expedition cruising. Coral Discoverer is our 72 passenger ship built to take you closer to unspoiled vistas in comfort, style and safety. Her shallow draught and manoeuvrability allow her to reach some of Australia’s most remote and rarely visited coastlines and islands. Her tender vessel, Xplorer, features our signature hydraulic lowering system and can seat all 72 passengers for excursions to beaches and rivers. Coral Discoverer is equipped with latest technology active stabilisers to ensure comfortable cruising in open waters and is fitted with modern safety and navigation equipment and wireless internet facilities.
Built to international SOLAS standards and one aim in mind; to create the ultimate small ship cruising experience. Australian flagged, and staffed entirely by an Australian and New Zealand crew, your experience aboard Coral Discoverer will be unique.
