Unlike the northern Caribbean Islands, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines boast a mountainous landscape due to past volcanic activity. The islands provide several hundred miles of untarnished beaches and turquoise waters, as well as a veritable playground of different cultures and traditions, largely unaltered by tourist intrusion. Unrivalled as a destination for snorkelling and diving, the reefs around Canouan are a must. Onshore, the lush islands of the Grenadines are a hiker’s paradise. You can explore the ruins in Belair National Park in Carriacou or the sparkling waterfalls of Saint Vincent; climb to the summit of Mount Pleasant on the green island of Bequia or cool off with a swim at Carriacou’s Sandy Island. These tranquil isles come alive for Vincy Mass, a carnival on Saint Vincent. Elsewhere, Bequia welcomes…

“He wanted not a typical Med yacht, but a GLOBAL cruising yacht” An owner’s wishlist at the conception stage of his new yacht is often written with a broad brush, general thoughts to be coloured in later. But in the case of Cloudbreak , the 72.5-metre launched last year at Abeking & Rasmussen and making her public debut at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, there was something very specific. "Heli-skiing!” says Espen Øino, tasked with creating the yacht’s exterior styling and the layout. "The owner’s vision was to be able to land on the deck and get out of his helicopter after skiing, and immediately be able to enter a space in which he could sit down in warmth and comfort to watch GoPro videos of the skiing that he and…

“We had a lot of INPUT from the clients – they had a clear VISION” W hen she was delivered in July 2017, the 85-metre Areti entered into the often aimed for but not always attained category of ‘yachtsman’s yacht’. Also straddling the ‘gentleman’s yacht’ sub-genre, Areti was unveiled as an impressive modern classic, with contemporary lines and a classic interior. However, describing a yacht by forcing it into a category rarely does it justice unless it is in relation to the owner and how it will be used. With Areti , there is no denying that she is a very personal yacht and will cruise extensively with her well-travelled owner. In fact, she is the smallest yacht ever to obtain the Passenger Yacht Code (PYC) class, an indication of her…

“My FAVOURITE part of this process has been to do things people didn’t EXPECT us to do” Gulf Craft is a company that wants everyone to know it’s doing things differently, and not just for the sake of it either. Established in Dubai in 1982, the shipyard is now one of the world’s most prolific, building around 400 yachts a year, and the only major builder that builds across such a wide range, from 30 feet to 200 feet. The company’s CEO is Erwin Bamps, a Belgian by birth, who has now spent 15 years at the company and has overseen turning the brand into the global name of today. "I think that we are entering into an established market but with an original way of thinking, and we’re entering emerging markets…

My father took me mackerel fishing in a little boat on the West Coast of Scotland on one of our family holidays. Using a rod and a line of hooked feathers we hit a shoal of feeding fish and I was reeling them in six at a time - very exciting for a nine-year old. Which destinations do you most look forward to visiting? I love going back to the Turkish Coast. The scenery is spectacular, the people friendly and I love nothing better than anchoring by the stern in one of the many little coves away from the crowd.…
