Sailing on the beautiful expansive Hobart harbour at twilight is an experience not to be missed. Views of the sparkling city with its rolling hills and magnificent mountain backdrop are breathtaking in the summer twilight. Sail on the River Derwent taking in the view before coming to anchor in a sheltered bay where you will be served a wonderful meal of the best Tasmanian food accompanied by our famous wines and beer, or whatever takes your fancy.
Put together a private party of up to eight or a romantic cruise for two ... or treat yourself if you think you dererve it! Because these cruises are private charters we can customise them to suit your needs. We run these cruises from 6:30pm to 9:30pm over the summer months and the aim is more relaxation than exhilaration but the sun doesn't even go down until after 8pm so there is plenty of time to give our 62 foot yachts a good fast run before anchoring, if that is what you would like - most people can't resist it!
The evening typically runs like this:
You will be greeted onboard with a glass of sparkling Tasmanian wine or beer along with freshly shucked Tasmanian oysters and canapès before sailing off to explore the beautiful sites of the harbour and making our way to our anchorage. We will nestle into one of the many sheltered bays on the harbour and serve up a meal from our galley. We will put together a main and dessert course based on the preferences you provide us at the time of booking or in later correspondence (e.g. you could upgrade to fresh lobster*). Only the best local produce will be used and accompanied by our great Tasmanian wines and beer, or your choice of drink. The meal can either be served below deck in our large saloon or under shelter on our cockpit table - your choice.
