available for private charter & cruises on Sydney Harbour
Originally named Our Svanen, the Southern Swan is a magnificent three-masted barquentine built in Denmark in 1922. Made of Danish oak she is a unique vessel, while not classified as an icebreaker, her hull is extraordinarily strong enabling her to handle light ice that may have built up in the cold waters of the North Atlantic, Denmark and Greenland, where she originally traded as a grain carrier.


The Southern Swan has a unique nautical history. In 1969 she was purchased as a private vessel and extensively refitted to handle larger and longer ocean voyages. She served as a sail training vessel with the Canadian Sea Cadets and journeyed to Vancouver to appear at the World Expo in 1986. She then sailed to England to join the First Fleet Re-enactment.


The Southern Swan made the voyage from England to Australia in 1988 to take part in the famous Australian Bicentennial First Fleet Re-enactment. Her berth has been at the historic Campbell’s Cove, The Rocks ever since.


the Southern Swan sails Sydney’s famous harbour, providing day trips, exclusive charters and occasional offshore trips up and down the New South Wales Coast. She is currently the only ship in Sydney to offer the thrilling Mast Climb, an ascent up the rope ladder rungs to the Futtock Plate, where climbers can take in the breathtaking view of Sydney Harbour from a truly unique vantage point.


Experience the beauty and romance of a bygone era aboard this magnificent vessel.
