The Yacht "Stormbreaker"

Comfort in the heart of the wilderness.

West Coast Yacht Charters is an "owner operated" business. The owner/skipper, now having operated since 1991, is passionate about this beautiful area, and all cruises are fully guided. Trevor will tell you about the fascinating history of this precious West Coast of Tasmania.

Fishing gear and kayaks are provided for your enjoyment while we are at anchor, and we always sail when the wind permits.
We offer a timeless journey across Macquarie Harbour, from Strahan, into Tasmania's ancient temperate wilderness of the island's unspoiled West Coast.

You will discover breathtaking scenery and experience the wild West Coast while sailing on "Stormbreaker", a 20 metre (65 foot) steel ketch, under billowing sails with a maximum of ten overnight passengers across one of Australia's largest harbours, to the mouth of the Gordon River in Tasmania's Wilderness Heritage Area.
