Boat Excursions in Franklin


The Nancy is a motor launch built in 1917 at Battery Point (Hobart). She operated as a ferry (and as a flying boat tender) on the Derwent and Huon rivers for almost 40 years. Martin Krynen completed a major restoration of the Nancy in 2010. In an act of wonderful generosity he gifted her to the Living Boat Trust at Franklin so that she can once again be enjoyed, cruising the waters of the Huon. About Hiring and Excursions Nancy is available for group bookings at a cost of 35 AUD per person (30 AUD concession, 20 AUD child under 16) or 200 AUD per group (minimum of 6) for a one and a half hour excursion.  Normal times are 1.30pm, Tuesday and Sunday: other times by arrangement. The Huon River at Franklin, dotted with islands, with a 'secret lagoon', and overlooked by the Sleeping Beauty range, is a spectacular location for excursions on the water. Visitors can expect to see vistas of both craggy mountains and of the mellow hill country of the Huon Valley, historic reminders of the glory days of this old district, and wildlife enjoying the unique mix of swamp and bushland.  Rates: 38 AUD For 1 person  If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
