Coral Trekker

Steeped in history Coral Trekker a square-rigged tall ship is the perfect for your next adventure

Coral Trekker is a square-rigged, wooden tall ship with distinctive rusty red sails. 1939 saw the keel laid, then the Second World War began. With a delayed start due to the war, the infamous Norwegian Adventures, who wrote the book “Ho Ho” sailed her to New Zealand and then planted their own anchors ashore. 

Coral Trekker was then sold into the fishing industry. As a strong sea vessel, she was one of the only vessels that could reach the ‘Whahini’ passenger ferry that sunk in heavy weather, saving many lives. To acknowledge her heroism a Bay in the Snares group of Islands, off New Zealand’s coast is named after her original name “Ho Ho 2”. 

Coral Trekker was refitted by “Australian Himalayan Expeditions”as a square-rigged ketch in preparation for The First Fleet Reenactment. Renamed “Coral Trekker”, she spent twenty-five years in the Whitsundays before moving to Sydney; here she attends east coast festivals, is involved in maritime training and also does daily sails and charters on Sydney Harbour.
