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.

This yatch tour is perfect for everyone who wishes to clear their mind of the busy city busy roads. Mark was fun and very kind. He's flexible and accommodating to us and we had a lot of fun. Definitely going to do this again!

Had a great spring afternoon sailing with Mark and Marsha who were very obliging with our young families - the boys and girls all had multiple goes at the wheel which they loved. Perfect conditions - we'd do it again in an instant!
