Enterprize | Tall Ship
The Enterprize is a replica of John Pascoe Fawkner's Schooner (tall ship) Enterprize - the ship that sailed from Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) in 1835 with the first permanent white settlers that started what has become the City of Melbourne.
The ship today is a replica, and the first square rigged commercial sailing ship to be built in Melbourne in over 120 years. She was built so that a significant part of Melbourne's history would be preserved and accessible to the people of Victoria.
Enterprize now gives people of all ages the opportunity to experience life on board a nineteenth century sailing ship. The Enterprize Ship Trust is a not-for-profit organisation and is dependent on sailing income and donations for its continued operation.
As a Not for Profit organisation, our 100+ volunteers and a handful of staff provide an 1830's sailing experience for all with an adventurous spirit and an interest in Melbourne's - and Victoria's - maritime past.
The Ship can be chartered for a few hours or a few days, catering for up to 45 guests for day charters and 10 for overnight sails. We also run public sails throughout the year around Port Phillip Bay and ports around the southeast coast of Australia, see our sailing schedule for details.
The Enterprize is operational from August to June and offers a range of sails from evening sails to overnight sails.
These sails depart from Docklands, Williamstown, Geelong, Rye and Port Arlington.
For a longer voyage, the Enterprize offers sails to Portland, Westernport Bay, Wilson's Promontory and Tasmania.
