Welcome aboard Eventide. We are Neville & Penny, the owner/operators of Sailing Eventide. Our passion for sailing spans several decades. We have many thousands of nautical miles under our belts, individually, as a couple, and for the last 13 years with our 2 young children. We’ve sailed the Australian coastline extensively, from the calm waters of Pittwater, to the tropical delights of Northern Queensland. We have sailed the rugged and remote beauty of the Kimberly region, and also the wild, windy, turquoise waters of Western Australia’s Coral coast. Our most recent trip also saw us sailing Eventide from Sydney, up the East coast of Australia, across the top of Australia and down the West coast to Perth.
Eventide now calls Fremantle home and we’re delighted to share her with you.
After many years in corporate management roles we’ve turned our love of sailing and years of coaching, training and management experience, into ‘Sailing Eventide’. Offering a truly unique and immersive sailing experience designed exclusively for small groups of up to 12 people. As Western Australian locals, we know the waters and Islands off Fremantle like the back of our hands.
We can’t wait to share our love of sailing Eventide and our amazing local destinations with you.
About Our Vessel – Eventide
Meet Eventide, our 38’ Lagoon sailing catamaran! The Lagoon 380 is fast, stable, safe and also easy to manoeuvre. Eventide has all the creature comforts. Inside you’ll find a spacious saloon seating for 8 with uninterrupted 360 degree views, with plenty of headroom and bathed in natural light. Down below there are 4 cabins and 2 heads each with electric toilets and shower facilities.
On deck, you can move around easily and safely while under sail due to the wide decks and a rigid walkway on the trampolines. With several zones to relax in you are spoilt for choice. Catch some rays on the expansive trampolines, assume the dolphin spotting seat on the bow or stay protected from the wind and sun in the hard covered and spacious cockpit area. Also there’s a fresh water shower on the stern that provides an opportunity to wash off after a swim.
On the performance front, we routinely make 7+ knots in normal winds, but when the winds are calm or the seas get rough, our dual diesel engines ensure we stay safe, stable, and on schedule in all conditions. We like to think of Eventide as a sailboat with power, not a power boat with sails.
We want to share our love of sailing with you. The pure exhilaration, freedom, fun and adventure of it. When you’re out on the ocean, wind in the sails, sun on your face and eyes on the horizon, there is a very real sense that the journey is far more important than the destination. In touch with the natural environment, you’re reminded of how small one really is. Life’s insignificant details just slip away.
Our mission is to create a unique and fun experience that gives you the opportunity to enjoy your own journey aboard Eventide, alongside your family and friends. Join us while we explore beautiful local waters and Islands. Step away from reality, at least for the day. Refresh, reflect, and create special memories with loved ones that last well beyond your time with us.
“She loved the sea. She liked the sharp smell of the air; and the vastness of the horizons bounded only by a vault of azure sky above. It made her feel small, but free as well.”George R.R. Martin
