Motor Fishing Vessel Tacoma

Like much of Australia and the rest of the world, the Tacoma Preservation Society (TPS) put the MFV Tacoma into hibernation until the challenges of COVID-19 were sorted.

She was tied up at her mooring at Sandy Point Drive in Port Lincoln for most of that time. But we are back!

The various charity days, charters and plans to slip the vessel were slightly altered. The 2023 Tuna Poling Adventures and the early-year cruises were very successful. It was great to have the boat working again. You can see the dates for the 2024 Tuna Poling Adventures above. Berths are limited so don’t think about it for too long – just do it!

If anyone is into rowing, don't forget the Tacoma's Rowing Group gathers every Wednesday (4:30pm - 6:00pm) at the Tacoma berth on Sandy Point Drive.

Please keep healthy and safe and the very best wishes to you and your family.
