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 retaining all her old world charm, she has been re-fitted and fully equipped with modern conveniences including fully air conditioned and even a 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 the navigation and sailing aids while you cruise the islands – or take the helm and experience being captain yourself!
Stepping down into the saloon… its spacious and comfortable, the ideal spot to relax in air conditioned comfort, take in a movie or the day’s slide show of your Summertime adventures. Equipped with two large toilets and showers, sleeping afloat is a sensational experience – you’ll enjoy some of the best sleeps ever as the ocean laps the wooden hulls and Summertime bobs gently at anchor.
