Powerboat Cruising Group

Explore the bay!

Cruising in company is a fantastic way to meet like-minded people while exploring our waterways. The Powerboat Cruising Group regularly travels to many beautiful destinations around Moreton Bay and beyond. Cruise events are organised for most months throughout the year and are fun for the whole family. With over 70 members with power boats ranging in size from 22 foot to over 50 foot and cruising speeds of 6 to 26 knots, it’s not the speed or size that matters, it’s the company.


Formed due to a growing demand by couples and families taking up power boating and looking to cruise in company, the Powerboat Cruising Group has grown from 6 members in 2003 to now over 70 members. We are recognised as a major interest group within RQYS and are well supported.


The Group frequently organises cruise events to destinations everywhere from Bribie Island to the Gold Coast. Cruise events are organised for most months of the year and are fun for the whole family. Some past events have also included extended coastal trips to Keppel Bay, Grafton, the Great Sandy Straits and beyond. Cruises range from two day local events to two week extended cruises and you may join in for part or all of any of these events. 


We strive to offer members the opportunity to:
Meet and welcome new members
Forge new friendships in a relaxed social atmosphere
Explore and gain knowledge of our beautiful waterways
Encourage member participation in Squadron activities and events


Powerboat Cruising Group membership is free and exclusive to full boating members of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron. The Group is always looking for new members and we would encourage any RQYS members, new or old, looking to expand their boating and social horizons, to join the Powerboat Cruising Group.
