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!

Daily Calm Water Cruises on the Huon River

Built of oak in 1930, the privately owned Danish sailing vessel Yukon, was rescued by Australian shipwright David Nash and his Danish wife Ea Lassen, from the bottom of a harbour near Copenhagen. Learn more about the history of the Yukon here.
