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.

We had an unbelievable day with Mark and his crew. We went out for the whole day and moored in a bay at the opening of the Derwent River. We were lucky with a 34 degree day and it was sensational! We spent a few hours on the beach after swimming in from the boat, highly recommend on a hot... More

Four of us booked the twilight Derwent River cruise and could not have had a more enjoyable time. All of the crew are wonderful and friendly, and made sure it was enjoyable for all no matter what you wanted from the experience. Also, the snacks that were served on board were a wonderful touch - tasty and local - and... More

Thanks so much for your kind review. Now that our busiest season ever is over and I finally get time to respond, it is getting quite cool and twilight starts before the afternoon sails are over! Hot chocolates are all the go : ) More

We felt quite elegant...until Commanche flashed past! Mark, Marsha & Jimmy and the incredible Tasmanian skyline made this the experience of a lifetime - definitely to be re-lived.

I wanted to do something special during a trip to Hobart with my son - it was his first time sailing and we both had a really terrific time. Mark, Marsha and Jimmy were great hosts and they got us involved with all parts of the sailing experience. I highly recommend this to anybody.

Trip exceeded all our expectations. Was first time out in a big yacht for our kids (4,6 & 8) - who all enjoyed it, said they'd go again. The boat Helsal 4 is roomy, well-appointed, clean and tidy. Skipper Mark and crew (2) are really capable and friendly and came up with a plan that suited our modest experience (Bruny... More

We booked a half day tour and it didn't disappoint. The boat was beautiful and wasn't overbooked. Plenty of room to relax and move around. The crew were very friendly and happy to spend time explaining the boat and what they were doing. They also gave us plenty of opportunity to help out with the sailing. The food provided was... More

An absolutely amazing three hour twilight cruise on board a luxury boat with an experienced, friendly and professional crew (including Billie the Parrot). Our group was aged from 9-70 and everyone throughly enjoyed it. An absolute must for any visitor or local alike. A few unique perspective of a beautiful city and the stories told by the crew only added... More

Surprise Boxing Day sailing trip for my husband's Christmas present. He had an absolute ball. Mark and the rest of the crew were lovely, very obliging and happy to let you either have as much hands on fun as you liked, or you could kick back and have a hot chocolate and other yummy snacks as you sailed.
