Welcome to the Derwent Sailing Squadron, situated in a magical spot on the banks of Hobart’s River Derwent, next to Wrest Point Casino and opposite the University of Tasmania, the Club’s location is really second to none. We pride ourselves on offering members and visitors the warmest of welcomes.
The Derwent Sailing Squadron’s marina is the largest and most technically advanced Club marina in Tasmania with the John Blackwood Marina which opened 1985 comprising 130 fixed pile berths with sizes ranging from 6m to 16m and the Roy Barkas Extension, designed by Burbury Consulting and built by Bellingham Marine, opened in 2016 which offers 140 floating berths ranging from 10m to 30m with individual power and water services.
The marina has onsite parking and is only accessible with a marina pass with advanced security in place to give owners ease of access and peace of mind.
