We will work with you to tailor an experience on the water perfectly fitting your plans for a day of sailing, for a short break, dockside entertainment or an evening cruise. Whether its action and adventure, fishing, pure relaxation or a luxurious way to travel.

The schooner Haparanda has fascinated, even obsessed, two generations of Lundmark men. It has taken 22 years of their lives and cost more than a million dollars. Lex Lundmark spent seven years building the schooner and his obsession knew no bounds. He built the entire boat except the engine "I even made the wheel myself," he told an Australian newspaper in the 1960s.

The two masts, 50 foot and 40 foot, were built at home and Lex had to knock a hole in a wall and build a room on the outside to fit them into the house.
