    About the ship:

    Southern Swan, black-hulled 3 masted Barquentine.

    The year was 1922 and a beautiful traditional Baltic Trader was launched. She was built in true Danish Shipbuilding tradition, the Danes being the last commercial timber shipbuilders in the world to survive. After 46 years of carrying grain and occasionally general cargo, she couldn't compete with the modern ships and was laid up. Doug Havers with foresight into keeping the age of sail alive bought her and started an 8-year refit transforming her into the graceful 1820's style barquentine we can enjoy today. Her years prior to being in Australia's First Fleet re-enactment in 1988 were spent sailing the ocean attending Tallship events and training Canadian Sea Cadets. She now graces Sydney Harbour for you all to touch, feel and experience a real piece of Maritime history kept alive purely by the people that buy tickets to sail upon her. She can now carry up to 100 passengers with 10 crew.

    Soren Larsen, white hulled Brigantine.

    It was the end of World War 1 and steel was at a shortage. Demark had been overrun by the Nazis so their skilled tradesmen had not been all killed on the front line. The government was looking to stimulate the economy and timber shipbuilding had a revival. This saw the Soren Larsen emerge from the Soren Larsen and Sons yard in Nykobing Mors in 1949 after 30 shipwrights spent 18 months constructing the hull.
    After trading grain and general cargos like a semitrailer of today she finished her trading days in 1972. Bought by the Davies brothers she was brought back to life and was in several films, documentaries and shows whilst based in the UK. She pioneered sailing for the disabled. She was the Flagship of the First Fleet re-enactment in 1987/8. A South Pacific sailing icon for 20 plus years, a Cape Horner, she now graces Sydney Harbour for you to experience. Buy a ticket and help keep these beautiful ships alive. She can carry up to 120 passengers and 12 crew.

    Coral Treller, white hulled, tan sails, square-rigged ketch.

    The first circumnavigation by a group of Norweigan adventurers that the book Ho Ho was written about, was the inspiration that got Ho Ho II (now Coral Trekker) on the building blocks. WW2 stopped the build and she was hidden from the Nazies. 1949 saw her launched and start her own circumnavigation. Years later after charter work in Sydney Harbour in the 1950's, she ended up as the last sailing fishing vessel in NZ. The Tallships arrival in 1988 saw her transformed into the squarerigged ketch she is today and after 25+ years giving people experiences in the Whitsundays she now graces Sydney Harbour for all to enjoy. She can carry up to 36 passengers and 4 crew.
