43 Seat Naiad 12.5 Vessels

   6 Boats (4 Bruny Island, 2 Port Arthur)
   43 Seats

Pennicott Wilderness Journeys has six 12.5m Naiad vessels which are used for Bruny Island Cruises and Tasman Island Cruises.

These 43-seat vessels are ideally suited for eco-cruising in the waters of South East Tasmania. They're safe, comfortable and purpose built for the rugged coast of Southern Tasmania. Their unmatched manouevrability gets you closer to cliff faces and allows us to cruise inside the deep sea caves.

Designed by Robert Pennicott in conjunction with Kirby Marine (Western Australia) and Naiad (New Zealand), each 12.5 metre Naiad is powered by three low emission, fuel efficient Yamaha four-stroke outboards.

There is an onboard toilet, an overhead canopy and tiered, forward facing, open-air seating to ensure excellent all-round viewing. Not being closed in by glass enables you to feel a close connection with the wildlife and natural environment. 


12 Seat Naiad 11.3 Vessels

   3 Boats (Based in Hobart)
   12 Seats

In 2013, Pennicott Wilderness Journeys introduced three brand-new 11.3m Naiad specialised vessels which are based in Hobart and used for Iron Pot Cruises and Tasmanian Seafood Seduction.

Each vessel has 12 seats, but for short charters we can take up to 16 guests. 

These vessels have been designed by Robert Pennicott in conjunction with Kirby Marine (Western Australia) and Naiad (New Zealand). They feature a unique design with a spacious enclosed cabin, luxury leather seats, a toilet and large awning windows that allow guests to immerse themselves in their surroundings.  

Steps fold down from the bow, allowing guests to step off onto remote beaches. At the back of the boat, there's a kitchen area where we prepare the gourmet seafood experience for Tasmanian Seafood Seduction. You are welcome to move freely throughout the boat during the voyage - great for photo opportunities!
