About the Boat

Fully functional, easily handled sloop in Tasmania, with separate aft cabin and central cockpit: thus a dry boat. Everything works and is a joy to sail (or motor when no wind). Tassie is one of the great cruising locations in the world, particularly Jan - May.
I could teach you all the boat systems and advise the best anchorages.
Her home anchorage is Barnes Bay, Bruny Island: a great place to strike out from and explore the sheltered waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel or further afield.
From there, you can go for a 1 hour sail, or 6 weeks and always find a gorgeous place to anchor up for the night.

About the location

From Wineglass Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula to Recherche Bay (about 100 nautical miles) there are literally hundreds of great anchorages in the beautiful, unspoilt cruising grounds of Tasmania.
You are never more than a hour of two from a safe and aesthetic harbour where you can pop the anchor down and enjoy long tranquil evenings in the Tasmanian summer and autumn.
You will be accompanied by dolphins and diverse seabirds (including albatross) on your journey and enjoy the hospitality of friendly people in the anchorages and villages.
