The Duyfken is back at South of Perth Yacht Club - Come and take a FREE visit this Sunday during OPEN DAY!

From the Duyfken CEO Peter Bowman

The move to locate Duyfken to her summer home at the South of Perth Yacht Club happened on Friday, November 8 from 8.30am at the Sardine Wharf, Fremantle.

Now, this is no small exercise. Once all the rigging was released and the yards were lowered to the deck, we then had the task of lifting the three masts and bowsprit and placing them on the deck of the ship. A 15-tonne capacity crane was required to do this, and all up the lift took just over 1 hour.
All the spars were then strapped down for the voyage under motor from Fremantle to the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club. The ship made quite a sight travelling down the Fremantle Harbour with the large container ships in the background giving real perspective to the size of Duyfken – tiny!!

The voyage time from Fremantle to Royal Freshwater Bay YC was around 40 minutes. Time for the team of volunteers to relax whilst taking in the magic vista of this part of the Swan River.

Upon arrival at Royal Freshwater Bay YC, the whole process was repeated again, but in reverse. The crane was once again alongside the ship and the lifting and positioning of the masts was the task at hand.

An hour or so later, Duyfken was on her way to South of Perth Yacht Club, arriving around 1.45pm, ready to be bedded down for the night, before the crew settled in for a debrief over a cold Gage Roads ‘Little Dove’ beer.
Duyfken move

The ship will be ready to set sail on her first Twilight Sail for the season on Saturday, November 23, with the season running through until mid-March 2020.

Now, you won’t want to miss the boat, oops! - ship this season. We have around 60 tickets available at these EARLY BIRD prices for sailing dates scheduled for November 23, 24 and 30. When booking, use the code "EARLY BIRD". If you miss out on the Early Bird special don't worry as SoPYC Members also receive a 10% discount. Just mention it when you book.
For more details or to make a booking, contact Pic Lee at: or 0427 160 606
