Map - Calm Water Cruise


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!

We rescued Yukon from the bottom of a harbour near Copenhagen. After a dedicated rebuild, we sailed charter in Scandinavia and in 2011, we undertook a 16-months-long sea voyage to Tasmania with our sons, professional crew and guests. We have been running Yukon-Tours for the past 20 years. Learn more about the history of the Yukon here.
