Hestia is a well designed sailing catamaran currently legally limited to 33 guests but is actually larger and more stable than the other catamarans in the fleet with a max capacity of 30 guests.

One of the key attributes of this catamaran is the amount of seating space available from the 4 main areas - the rear cockpit, saloon area, fly bridge and the unique pod area by the front trampolines.

The boat has recently had a major refit to give it a modern and homely feel and is well equipped to cater for a range of occasions for which your friendly hosts are keen to impress.

The day was dreary and wet but by the time we got on Hestia - the gods were kind to us with the true magic that Sydney Harbour has to offer, spectacular and memorable - who couldn't love this city. The staff had a great time and said we should do it again!
