Map - Bruny Island and Channel


We welcome you on board Yukon, the traditional danish build sailing ketch.

We sail in harmony with the wind and the waves, all on board can get involved with the daily routine of a sailing vessel or you simply sit back and relax.

As the elements gradually begin to work their magic, one cannot help but be enchanted by the sensation of a ship under sail at sea.

Come sail with us!

Bruny Island and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel

Sail aboard Yukon on ‘the channel’, a favourite cruising ground for the Tasmanian sailor, this partially sheltered water way nestled between the Tasmanian mainland and Bruny Island has a myriad of anchorages and secluded beaches. An ideal passage for a short break, this 3 night voyage is a good introduction to coastal cruising aboard Yukon.
All destinations are considered with regard to weather and an individual’s capacity. The prime objective of the voyages is to enjoy ‘the channel’ and Bruny Island’s coastal surrounds, whilst taking advantage of Yukon’s roomy comfort. Boat trips in our ships boat and a series of short guided/unguided walks will be a part of the daily program.
