Sail aboard one of the last operating Pearl Luggers in Australia.

Willie’, a 67’ Gaff Rig Schooner, modelled on the designs of early 1900 pearl luggers, was built to fish for Mother of Pearl shell Pinctada Maxima, which put Broome on the map and shaped the history of the region. ‘Willie’ allows you to see how a traditional gaff rigged sailing vessel operates with all sails heaved up manually just as our forefathers did.

Now sailing through summer between Busselton, Bunker Bay and Eagle Bay, Willie offers an authentic sailing experience taking you with the winds to enjoy the beautiful southern coast.
