Sailing in Tierra del Fuego
VAE invites you to experience a different way of sailing and enjoy the unspoiled nature of Tierra del Fuego, where it alternates mountains, glaciers, forests, lakes and rivers.
The KSAR sailboat will give you access to places where you can only travel by underway. To fulfill your dream of adventure, make a sport or scientific expedition or just curiosity.
Our base in Ushuaia, situated on the edge of the Beagle Channel, opens the doors to the ends of Patagonia, which passed the most fascinating stories and experiences of the pioneers, fearless seafarers who braved the raging winds and unknown regions inhabited by the Yamanas, aboriginal Beagle Channel canoers.
The KSAR sailboat, built in steel, has a wood and brass interior, comfortable rooms, two double cabins for four passengers and room for eight people, bathrooms, heating and a rich library. Security has all the requirements of the Naval Prefecture of Argentina.
