Description

Swiftsure II is the flagship of the Living Boat Trust’s fleet which together represents many important aspects of Tasmania’s maritime heritage. She is a traditional Tasmanian bay-whaler which would have been used for harvesting the Southern Right Whale in the Derwent estuary. She provides people with the opportunity to experience what working a vessel of this type would have been like.
