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.

Great morning of sailing! You can participate as much or as little as you like. Mark and the crew were great in explaining how the boat worked.

We joined Helsal IV at Port Davey and were blessed with divine weather. We were not strangers to this part of Tasmania but find it lovelier each time. We went beach combing, walked, swam, set a craypot and sailed with the boat back to Hobart. It was different for us to have no responsibility and have all our needs met.... More
