About Freedom Fast Cats

Freedom Fast Cats - family business servicing Great Keppel Island

Based in Rosslyn Bay Harbour, Freedom Fast Cats offer ferry transfers as well as a wide range of cruises to the Keppel Bay Islands. These vessels are also available for private charters, commercial crewed or bareboat charters and for long or short term contracts.

Freedom Fast Cats has been proudly owned and operated by the Allen family since 1999.

The history of maritime tourism in the Allen family dates back to 1950, when Lew Allen established the first resort on Quoin Island – off the shores of Gladstone. Around this time Lew Allen bought a ferry called Freedom 1, marking the first of 26 vessels (and counting) to be owned by the Allen family.

In 1968, Max Allen (son of Lew Allen) started his own business, Max Allen Cruises. Max operated charter vessels and ferries along the Queensland coast, from Gladstone to the Torres Strait. The company undertook many maritime activities including diving and fishing charters, research support, surveying and salvages.

Birth of Freedom Fast Cats

Max Allen Cruises became Freedom Fast Cats in 1999, running a daily ferry service to Great Keppel Island. Today, Freedom Fast Cats is managed by Max Allen, his wife Carmel Allen and their son Max Allen Jnr. The family business currently runs five ferries and two glass bottom boats.
