A sailing dinghy to suit everyone.

The Melanie is the small yacht designed and initially built within the Tamar Valley. The design was by a local yachtie, Grahame Titmus, and later built by the students of Port Dalrymple School. The small yacht was designed was to provide a vessel that could be handled by young “yachties”.

Honestly wasn't expecting much when we went in but were blown away by the friendliness of the staff and their excitement to share the story of Bass and Flinders with us. There's a full sized replica of the Norfolk ship inside (You have no idea looking on the outside of the centre) which you can go in and explore and a few other things to look at. I highly recommend going to the Bass and Flinders centre if you're up in George Town, it was a favorite of mine on the trip and I'd go back again.
