90 minutes Calm Water Sails on The Huon River

Built of oak in 1930, the privately owned Danish sailing ship Yukon, was rescued by Australian shipwright David Nash and his Danish wife Ea Lassen, from the bottom of a harbour near Copenhagen. 
After a five year restoration, the family has operated Yukon as a charter vessel, first in Europe and now in Australia.

Nancy is a motor launch built in 1917 in Battery Point, Hobart. She operated as a ferry and a flying boat tender on the Derwent and Huon rivers for almost 40 years. A major restoration of Nancy was completed in 2010 by Martin Krynen, before he generously gifted her to the Living Boat Trust at Franklin so that she can once again be enjoyed, cruising the waters of the Huon. 

Bookings for Nancy tours can be made by calling the Wooden Boat Centre on +61 3 6266 3586.
