Leeuwin II | Function Concepts
PLACE The adventure begins at Victoria Quay
in Fremantle. Short three-hour sails take place
close to Fremantle, and there is also the option of
staying put in the beautiful port city.
NUMBERS Above deck, the Leeuwin II can cater
for up to 135 people cocktail-style. For voyages,
the ship can accommodate up to 40 people.
FOOD Function packages can include catering
but event hosts are also welcome to bring in
their own caterer. On voyages, the onboard chef
serves up great food in the main saloon.
DRINK The Leeuwin II has a BYO alcohol policy.
DETAILS Launched on 2 August 1986, the
Leeuwin II is a three-masted barquentine
1850s-style rig with a steel hull and teak deck. It is
55m long, 33m tall and has 16 sails.
As far as venues go, they don’t come
much more unique than WA’s own
iconic tall ship, the Leeuwin II.
Not only will this masterpiece of maritime
design provide guests with a once-in-a-
lifetime experience, it will also take the
headaches out of organising a function.
With the Leeuwin II, there’s no need to plan
– just rock up for an unforgettable day on the
water. Decorations and other arrangements
will take a backseat as you and your guests
take in the stunning WA coastline.
The ship offers a beautiful setting for a
range of functions, from corporate events,
sundowners and product launches to
birthdays, Christmas parties and weddings.
Guests can choose to participate in a sailing
activity or sit back, relax and let the expert
crew take care of the sailing.
To get a more in-depth look into a
true sailing experience, there is also the
opportunity to participate in teambuilding
sails. The crew can take you through all
aspects of sail training and facilitate activities.
A range of packages includes short sails,
lasting three hours and over, at any time of
the day or evening. Overnight charters and
multi-day trips are also possible.
Importantly, all proceeds from private
functions aboard the Leeuwin II assist the
Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation in its
youth development work.
The Leeuwin II is popular for corporate functions, with plenty of opportunities for team-building exercises.
