Wineglass Bay Sail Walk
Climb challenging peaks and sail picturesque islands
This amazing walk, the only one of its kind in Tasmania, takes in the spectacular beaches, peninsulas and island trails found in national parks along the east coast. Share with us the wonders of Maria Island, Freycinet Peninsula, Schouten Island and the Tasman Peninsula. This walk is supported by the spectacular Lady Eugenie, a 23-metre (75-ft) luxury classic ketch. Superb 3-course dinners are served either aboard Lady Eugenie or in the relaxed surrounds of a barefoot beach dinner under the stars.
Lady Eugenie is a luxurious, 23-metre ketch rigged yacht. She is five metres wide, which makes her stable, safe and comfortable for both novices and sailing enthusiasts.
Her clipper bow, complete with a bowsprit you can walk on, is perfect for watching dolphins and other marine life. There's nothing more exhilarating than turning off her engine, relaxing and harnessing the power of the wind in her sails.
With beautifully maintained teak decks and classical, varnished hand rails, Lady Eugenie’s spacious decks are the perfect setting for relaxing whilst taking in the stunning scenery of Tasmania’s east coast. The central cockpit provides plenty of comfortable seating, with a picturesque alfresco dining setting: a magical place to take in the sunset.
During the evening, you can relax in the delightful and spacious saloon with dining table and comfortable lounge. Her professionally equipped, separate galley for the crew guarantees delicious meals made from local produce.
Lady Eugenie has just five comfortable cabins on board, all with air conditioning, bathrooms and showers. There are two rooms with one double bed each and three with two twin beds each.
