Come sailing aboard the 62 foot luxury Sydney to Hobart Maxi, Helsal IV. Experience what it is like to sail one of these magnificent crafts; even take the wheel if you like! Come for just a few hours on the Derwent or plunge right into the adventure and sail away with us on a yacht charter to places unimagined. Whether you choose to play on the Derwent, escape to the wilderness, or something in between, you'll never look to the sea in quite the same way again.

What a great afternoon out on the water. Mark and his crew sailed the 65ft yacht around Storm Bay for our small group of passengers and gave us a wonderful time. You had the opportunity to steer or let a sail out in a friendly, low key atmosphere. The sights were lovely, including a pod of dolphins on the way... More

Thanks Mark, Jamie and the crew for an enjoyable twilight sail. We really enjoyed participating on deck and working to keep that massive spinnaker up when heading back downwind. The sail suited everyone in our group - a highlight of our trip to Tasmania. Thanks

I had guests from the USA who have dreams of throwing in the towel and sailing around the world - so what better thing to do while they were visiting than to take them out on the Derwent to go sailing for 3 hours. We bought the tickets through Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre on Davey Street and it cost... More

Had a wonderful afternoon sailing on the Derwent with Mark, and his crew, Steph and Jimmy. The weather was perfect and it was great to have a turn at the helm. The food was fantastic, showcasing Tasmanian produce, and the company very convivial - a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Would love to do it again next time... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the three hours spent sailing on Helsal IV on the River Derwent. The yacht which has competed in three Sydney to Hobart races was spacious and comfortable. Skipper Mark offered guests the opportunity to take a turn at the helm and also pointed out interesting features along the shoreline. Crew members Jamie and Jimmy joined Mark in... More

From the delicious food, the great coffee, the stunning views and great chats with the professional, informative crew - it really was a day we will never forget.

The four of us joined Mark and his jovial crew for the 3hr cruise on the Derwent. It wasn't long enough, the weather was glorious, the yacht was super.
