As part of the MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival held in Hobart February 8-11 2019, Port Arthur has a number of vessels visiting before and after the festival.
The Soren Larsen will visit February 6-7 & 12-13 with 37 passengers on board. This ship built in 1949 was one of the last cargo carrying ships built by the Larsen Shipyard. The Soren Larsen was a working vessel and carried cargo in the Baltic for over 20 years. She has been lovingly restored and is in Tasmania for the festival.
Visitors and locals are welcome to the site to take photos of this stunning ship, a magnificent example of a late-era wooden sailing ship.
