Overview

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.

Apart from hosting the Sydney to Hobart Race celebration party, Hobart has unbelievable water sports properties. To top off the brilliantly run yacht facilities, the scenery alone is worth a visit to.
