Cruise in 'Whisper Mode'

through world heritage wilderness

Spirit of the Wild is like no other vessel to cruise on the Gordon River. She is a 33.8m catamaran, purpose-built for cruising in the sensitive environment of the UNESCO Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

Tannin-like finishes ensure she almost vanishes on the water. Her unique hybrid-propulsion system featuring electric motors, allow for quiet cruising while on the Gordon River, making for an unforgettable and immersive experience in this incredible environment.
