65 Precision Sports Cruiser

Prestigious Precision Performance

Brilliant Company is the flagship for Precision Cruisers. On the azure waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Brilliant Company’s metallic blue hull sparkles like a sapphire on the waters of the coral sea. Like a marlin, the Precisions coloured hull changes shades hues similar to that a hungry marlin depending on which way the sun shines onto her.

The Pristine Precisions Features

Powered by twin Caterpillar V-12 diesel engines and controlled by Twin Disk Power Commander throttles, Brilliant Company is an extremely agile boat her size and nimble enough to maneuver quickly to run down any fish as fast as the angler can crank the handle. With a fuel capacity of 6000 lt, the blue hull Precision is primed for long distance passage making marlin fishing adventures and exploring new frontiers at the Great Barrier Reef. Inside the bridge houses state of the art Garmin electronics, four 17in screens have been fitted to the rock maple dash displaying radar, sonar, navigation & Garmin cameras.

Onboard Accommodation

Brilliant Company’s 65-foot design integrates luxury, quality and pure comfort. Guests accommodation consists of two air-conditioned & ensuite cabins. Port side cabin has three single beds & the forward V berth cabin has two single beds. The vessel mixes contemporary finishes with a layout that is beautifully open-planned like a house. Alike a big sunroom, the main saloon is surrounded by plenty of glass for huge ocean views filled with lots of natural light. There is a generous, six-person L-shaped lounge to the port side & a Bose surround sound entertainment system complete with Samsung television, Blu Ray DVD player, vast satellite TV & Apple TV.  Fusion surround sound system that connects easily to your smart phone’s Bluetooth allowing you to enjoy your favourite music while on your charter.

Indoor/Outdoor Living At Its Finest

The huge saloon door set in a solid-stainless frame opens to the mezzanine area where the indoor living meets outdoor living at it’s finest. On the mezzanine is a plush lounge & extendable table that seats up to several guests at a time. This area is fully shaded from the tropical sun which is perfect for watching the lures in the spread while fishing or entertaining on anchor behind the GBR enjoying a cold one in hand. After a long day fishing, there’s no reason not to end your day’s fishing with a nice hot shower.

She’s Just Brilliant

In fishing terms, Brilliant Company has proven herself to be a very effective vessel for comfortable live aboard charters and with too many extras to mention, she is the ultimate sports fisher when it comes to fishing or leisure. Whether it’s a liveaboard marlin fishing adventure to the Great Barrier Reef, a full day cruise exploring the Whitsunday Islands, planning your wedding day or a celebration on the water with a sunset cruise. Brilliant Company is a versatile luxury vessel that can be chartered to suit all your needs.
