Overview

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 booked a half day trip on a family holiday to Tasmania and it was the highlight of our week! Incredible scenery, friendly and hospitable crew, great food and a real adventure. Thanks you Hobart Yachts for a memorable morning in Hobart.

Highly recommended! We had an amazing experience. The yacht (Helsal IV) is seaworthy, safe and comfortable. Everything was well prepared and as agreed. The owner and rest of the team's hospitality was unique. Fully satisfied crew from Poland.
