Enjoy a day of sailing from Hobart's spectacular, natural harbor aboard a luxury Sydney to Hobart maxi yacht. Take the helm and help trim the sails or just relax and take in the views of Hobart’s historic landmark buildings and stunning coastal scenery from the water. As you sail the Derwent River and into the waters of Storm Bay or the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, be on the lookout for seals, dolphins and migrating whales in season. Explore pristine, isolated beaches, go swimming off the yacht, do a spot of fishing and enjoy a delicious lunch made from the best of Tasmania's natural produce.

Take your turn at the helm of this mighty ocean racer or relax and enjoy the thrill of being under full sail. Explore isolated and pristine white sandy beaches, go swimming off the yacht, laze on the large sunny deck or retire below deck to enjoy luxury comfort with Tasmania’s finest gourmet food and drinks.See dolphins and seals as they swim alongside, watch albatross soaring high and if you’re lucky see migrating whales and their newly born calves, or pods of awesome killer whales.
