Ben Wallis operates an international charter service with the fully equipped 75′ steel-hulled motor sailor Australis – a purpose-built vessel for high latitude expedition sailing.

She is fully equipped to support expeditions, film crews, scientists, photographers, mountaineers, skiers, snowboarders, artists, bird watchers, divers, sightseers and adventurers of all descriptions.

In addition to all the luxuries of a well-appointed cruising vessel, Australis has large storage areas for equipment and a workshop.  She carries 9 passengers plus the Ocean Expeditions crew and is registered as a commercial “Category 0 (zero – Unrestricted)” vessel.  Click here to read more about our services.
