Overview

The SV Alexander Stewart, is a family-owned 60ft timber yacht built by a father, uncle and grandfather - Clive, John & Alexander Mitchell - they were boatbuilders by trade and it took them almost 20 years to build. As a result, the attention to detail is exceptional, with hand-carved timber throughout. Join us for a 3 hour sail in Melbourne's beautiful Port Phillip Bay.
