We understand romance…. What to Expect Onboard: Providence V is a classic 62-ft gaff-rigged schooner which offers day and sunset sails in the Whitsundays.  Providence V was built in North Queensland out of some of the last of the Tully rainforest timber by a wooden boat builder who still lives in North Queensland. He went all the way to America to get the plans and after several months of driving from Florida up to Maine, found the Gloucester schooner in the Mystic River. He was given permission by the museum to build one such schooner. So she is entirely unique. Providence was built in Mourilyn in the builder’s boatbuilding yard with his two sons. She was named Providence V as that was the fifth boat the boatbuilder saw on that trip named Providence. She has starred in a Hollywood movie, Survive the Savage Seas in 1992 having being found by a scout while sailing from Cairns to the Gold Coast. More information on her history is in an article Lindsay wrote about her including an interview with the boatbuilder who would prefer to remain unnamed. Suffice to say he is entirely knowledgeable about her history and that Scheel keel.

Captain is included.
A captain is provided by the listing owner to host and operate the trip.
