Hiring James Craig starts from $2,200.00


Barque James Craig is rightly famous around the world. She is Sydney’s only 19th Century square rigger (or Tall Ship) and her incredible restoration to full sailing condition was recognised in 2003 by the World Ship Trust’s award of their prestigious Maritime Medal.

Her restoration cost almost $30 million and took nearly 40 years to complete after she was rescued from Recherche Bay in far southern Tasmania.

A unique heritage venue hire for all events.
