Calm Water Cruises

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!

Yukon is original build in Denmark 1930, she was rescued by its current owners, us, David and Ea. We found Yukon in Copenhagen and bought her for a case of beer! Following a dedicated rebuild, we sailed charter in Scandinavia and in 2011 we completed a 16 months sea voyage to Tasmania with our two young boys (plus professional crew and guests).
We are now based in Franklin and have been operating Yukon-Tours for the past 20 years. Learn more about the history of the Yukon here.
