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.

My boyfriend and I did the 2pm Derwent river sailing. Mark and Jimmy were so helpful, friendly and accommodating! Both of us got a turn of steering, and my boyfriend was able to help with the sails as well. We had a rather cold and gloomy day, but that didn't detract from the experience, and if you forgot your coat,... More

We booked the two yachts for a moonlit sail after a tiring full-week conference, and it was simply perfect. The crew were great, the boats beautiful, and the location (and luckily the weather) were also perfect. They are incredibly accommodating and welcoming, really professional -- it's really hard to see anything to suggest could be improved. These guys are great:... More

I spent three nights on board Helsal IV in Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour in the far southwest of Tasmania. Fabulous location with some beautiful quiet little bays and coves for peaceful overnight mooring. Mark, Jimmy and Pete looked after us very well and their skills and local knowledge made for an excellent experience. Highly recommended.

We were on this yacht for 5 days with Mark, the owner, Pete who knows everything about Tasmania and Jimmie the fantastic chef and photographer. The 3 have a fantastic relationship which then puts you at ease. Food is home cooked. We also had freshly cooked crayfish. I am still waiting for Mark's mum's scone recipe as she uses lemonade...

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.

We were travelling round Tasmania in January for our honeymoon. We booked an overnight stay on Helsal IV as one of four nights in Hobart and are so glad we did. Mark and the team made us feel so welcome, highlights include: watching the dolphins surfing the bow wave of the boat, fishing for flathead which Jimmy then cooked up... More

What a great afternoon out on the water. Mark and his crew sailed the 65ft yacht around Storm Bay for our small group of passengers and gave us a wonderful time. You had the opportunity to steer or let a sail out in a friendly, low key atmosphere. The sights were lovely, including a pod of dolphins on the way... More
