Derwent Hunter is a traditional sailing ship exploring pristine reefs and beaches of uninhabited islands around the Northern end of the Whitsunday Islands.   The owners of this legendary boat have loved her immensely for well over a decade so she comes with trim lines despite her 66 years working under sail and at times in Films.
