Hammer - 2 Day / 1 Night

Hammer is a 22 metre maxi yacht that is indeed a true Australian yachting legend. Hammer was designed by Kel Steinman and owned and campaigned by Arthur Bloore. In a celebrated history, Hammer successfully completed many ocean races within Australia. Throughout her racing career Hammer competed in many blue water events and was best known for her five consecutive placings in the world famous Sydney to Hobart, including line honours in the 50th Anniversary of the event.

A Whitsunday Island sailing adventure on Hammer is ideal for the hurried traveller who wants to experience the exhilaration of an ocean racing yacht, but is pressed for time.

On Hammer you get to explore the Whitsunday Islands in any one of the unspoilt bays or anchorages including Nara Inlet, Stonehaven, or Blue Pearl Bay.
