Sundowner the company and concept is only six years new to Airlie Beach, the vessel herself has been operating in the Whtisundayâ€™s for over 25 years.
Originally built at Sea World on the Gold Coast for use as a floating camera platform for the making of a movie, it was brought to Hamilton Island by developer Keith Williams, refitted and extended, she was then put to work ferrying Hamilton island guests to Dent Island and of course Sunset Cruising.
After a few years it was taken over by the Harvey Family, owner/operators of HI Water Sports who developed if further and made it great family favorite. Twenty odd years later it was brought to Airlie Beach where she work as a backpacker party boat for another couple years before being put out to pasture on a mooring in Pioneer Bay.
That was almost six years ago. Jeremy and Nicole Graham took ownership of her in 2006 from their friends the Harvey’s and After 11 months in refit, and a lot of blood sweat and tears, the Polynesian War Canoe was transformed into Sundowner.
“It is the atmosphere we have created we are most proud of, social like and old English pub, we welcome and chat to our guests as if they were in our homeâ€ said Jeremy.
Our philosophy at Sundowner is about providing a great product, fantastic service in a friendly social atmosphere that gets your holiday of to a great start and that allows you to truly unwind and bask in a fantastic Whitsunday sunset whilst enjoying your favorite tipple from our fully licensed bar.
