On her last voyage to Melbourne, around 8,000 people enjoyed ship tours while moored at Workshops Pier, Seaworks, Williamstown.


TSV was pleased to welcome Tenacious to a berth at Seaworks. Representing the Jubilee Sailing Trust in the UK, the ship visited Melbourne in 2016-17. SV Tenacious is currently the only sea-going tall ship in the world that can be sailed by a mixed ability crew, including disabled people, those with mental health conditions or long-term ill-health issues, and the socially isolated. The accessible features of Tenacious make every aspect of shipboard life available to all, from setting the sails, going aloft and helming the ship.
