Description

Sirius is a Classic Staysail Schooner, designed by J.D. Thistlethwaite in the early 1930's. She was launched in February 1935.Just a legend

This sturdy vessel was designed to survive the worst storm that nature could serve up and she departed on a circumnavigation later that year. Returning to Sydney in 1937 Sirius entered the history books as the first Australian built yacht to do a circumnavigation and she is as strong and beautiful today as she was then. She sleeps six guests in comfort with many changes including roling head sail, fully battened main, a flush toilet, mains electricity and air conditioning. The owners and crew have a family connection dating back to the 1970's and would love you to become part of that history.

Down below there is a spacious saloon with a traditional navigator's station and a longitudinal galley with 4 burner stove, double sink, and electrical fridge.
