Summertime Layout

A classic timber ketch handcrafted in 1945 by master shipwrights in South Australia, Summertime has been beautifully restored and is the ultimate in sailing comfort. While she retains all of her old world charm, modern refits have seen her fully equipped with every modern convenience including a DVD/PC system, fully air conditioned throughout and even an aft deck fresh water jacuzzi! Topside you find spacious decks with areas to snooze in the shade or soak up some sun. Entering the wheelhouse you're greeted with a rich timber fit out and classic ambience. From here, your skipper will helm your voyage to adventure. Although traditionally charming with its hand turned wheel, the wheelhouse is fully air conditioned and equipped with every conceivable gadget of the 21st century! Ask your skipper to explain some of these navigational and sailing aids as you cruise from one island to the next- or even take the helm and experience being captain for a while!

From the wheelhouse you step down into the saloon...spacious and comfortable, it's the ideal spot to relax in air conditioned comfort and take in a movie or the day’s slide show of your Summertime adventures. Summertime is equipped with two large toilets and showers. Sleeping afloat is a sensational experience. You'll enjoy some of the best nights sleep you've ever had as the ocean laps the wooded hulls and Summertime bobs gently at anchor.
