Boat Show

Melbourne Boat Show 2023

Step on board and sail around Victoria Harbour during the Melbourne Boat Show in our one hour introductory sailing experiences ($60 pp). 

You won’t be a spectator. Learn to tack, gybe and trim the sails as we sail around the harbour and into the river. You may even get a chance to take the helm (depending on the conditions). This is the perfect opportunity to try keelboat sailing with expert instruction in the smooth waters of Victoria Harbour.

We are also offering a special 2.5 hour Experience Sailing at Sunset cruises that will take you to into the bay for a sail, and back up the river as you enjoy the sunset and very special refreshments. Departing at 5:30pm the cost is $220 pp.

No experience or special gear needed. The instructors from Blue Water Sailing School will welcome, train and support you. A safety briefing, life jackets and gloves are all provided.

Numbers are limited to just six per session to ensure everyone gets involved. With thousands coming to the show you will need to book early.


You can find us at stand 60 and Boomer is berthed at A12.
