Atlante, the new 55 metre megayacht from CRN

Luxurious Magazine

CRN unveiled the first glimpse of Atlante, the new 55 metre megayacht, at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show in September 2015.

Atlante was born within the company’s Ancona-based Italian shipyard where they specialise in the construction of fully customised steel and aluminium superyachts between 50 and 90 metres in length. The company was originally founded over 50 years ago and became part of the Ferretti Group in 1999. Their Ancona shipyard has a surface area of almost 80,000 square metres, 25,000 of which are indoors, and it can host the construction of megayachts of up to 90 metres long.

The design of Atlante  was developed by CRN’s technical team in collaboration with Studio Nuvolari Lenard, who worked on the megayacht’s exterior profile, and Studio Gilles & Boissier Interior Design.

This imposing megayacht is 11 metres wide with a strong stylistic identity and a military design theme. Square forms, sharp lines and innovative solutions, combined with an extraordinary attention to details makes Atlante a truly unique vessel. Boasting four decks and an Owner’s Suite, Atlante also features four VIP cabins accommodating 12 guests, as well as 13 crew members.

Atlante, the new 55 metre megayacht from CRN

Working closely with the Owner, who explicitly requested a yacht with a strong masculine edge, Atlante perfectly interprets their desires. CRN has created a vessel which truly breaks the mould, working in partnership with world renowned international designers to ensure the customer’s vision becomes a reality.

Atlante features unique touches, requested specifically by the Owner, including innovative handrail in polished steel with a trapezoidal profile, which are reminiscent of a diamond, as well as metal elements in polished steel and burnished brass.

The megayacht offers open spaces integrated with creative solutions, such as compartments and niches that are aesthetically integrated into the yacht’s overall design, to hide the mooring and safety equipment.

The Atlante tender garage

The garage holds three tenders: one limo tender, one walkaround, both custom-made nine metre models designed by Nuvolari Lenard, in addition to a custom-made five metre inflatable boat.

The innovative closed stern solution provides access to the sea via two side hatches. These open mechanically upwards so the tenders can be lowered into the water, via two cranes installed on the ceiling.

The elegant interior has been designed to create a strong sense of intimacy. Every detail was carefully considered in order to guarantee absolute privacy for the Owner. The dark colours of the hull and superstructure are also found in the interior, with varying tones of Carrara and Verona marble, combined with shades of smoked oak skilfully mixed with brushed fir, black oak and larch.

Reworked to create this unique vessel, Atlante features CRN’s signature characteristics which have written the history of international yachting.

The Beach Staircase on Atlante

Boarding Atlante is an experience in itself. Primary access is direct onto the lower deck from the beach club, a large decked area with light brushed fir and teak, equipped with a solarium, sunbathing area and custom-made tables. This is completed by two symmetrical areas, which open out onto the sea, each with its own balcony: the right-hand one is devoted to relaxation, with a massage bed and a Turkish bath, while the other side is dedicated to fitness, with Technogym equipment. The beach club also provides access to the engine room.

Along a striking staircase, in grey Carnico marble and teak, and via a watertight glass and steel hatch, guests enter the stylish and innovative main deck. A multi-purpose area which can be transformed from a technical zone to a living space – a convivial daytime area and a natural continuation of the beach club, a large and comfortable home theatre or even a generous party area.

A sliding glass door leads into the main salon, which is emblematic of the Owner’s taste, with dark smoked oak and light décor, giving the area a warm and welcoming feel. The interior décor, furniture and lighting have been custom made by Gilles & Boissier with tables created from fabric, wood and marble with metal legs along with sofas with rosewood frames and light Loropiana fabrics.

The main saloon on Atlante

Both sides of the living area feature two sliding glass doors towards the stern guaranteeing maximum privacy for the Owner and his guests from the outside while allowing them to remain in direct contact with the sea. Large vertical windows also provide light and reflections. The main salon contains the only internal dining area on the yacht, composed of two up-and-down tables positioned on an inset Tai Ping rug. The floor is dark oak parquet, with marble edging. A rug made of natural “abaca” fibre covers the entire surface area of the living space, while the ceiling is leather.

The lower deck offers four guest cabins, which are directly connected to the main deck. All with different layouts, but with the signature smoked oak and brushed silver fir tones, white Calacatta Vagli marble and custom made sofas and tables designed by Gilles & Boissier.

The lower-deck bow area contains the crew quarters, from which it is possible to access the dinette. This has dedicated access for taking on provisions via a hatch on the port side. On the opposite side of the dinette is the captain’s cabin, and beyond this, six cabins for crew members.

Towards the bow guests will enter the lobby, featuring smoked oak, with an integrated closed lift. A white Carrara marble staircase links the main deck to the guest cabins on the lower deck, and to the other decks which can also be reached by lift. Past the lobby, guests enter a wide corridor which leads to the Owner’s Suite. On the right-hand side of the corridor there is a day loo in Calacatta Vagli marble and afrormosia teak. On the left there is a door which leads to the professional galley and the pantry, and to stairs which provide access to the crew quarters on the lower deck.

The owners suite on Atlante

A wide corridor leads to the Owner’s Suite, which is contemporary and elegant in style, featuring brushed silver and brown fir, brushed black oak, eucalyptus for the desk and coffee table, and leather panels. The full-beam Master Stateroom opens up on the right with a sliding desk and a leather table/pouffe which slides along rails parallel to the sofa, positioned along the entire right-hand wall. The prestigious Suite boasts a wall-mounted TV and a desk opposite the bed, as well as a sofa. In the bow, the full-beam bathroom, his-and-her areas, is covered entirely in dark grey Carnico marble, with a central shower cabin in grey-veined white Calacatta Vagli marble.

The vessel can also be boarded from the outside stern area, forming an alternative access to the official one via the beach club, used for particularly tall docks. A hydraulic masterpiece in steel and teak leads guests on board and to the spacious cockpit of the upper deck. This features custom-made furnishings including black teak sofas and up-and-down dining tables in black oak with polished steel frames, combined with removable directors’ chairs. This area is also equipped with a minibar and an ice maker.

A six metre sliding glass door leads to the upper deck living area, where furniture is arranged symetrically with a beautiful low table in solid wood dividing the space into two. On each side there are corner couches, tables with eucalyptus and rosewood tops and custom-made lamps and the side windows bathe the area in light. The base of the windows feature leather seating, offering unrivalled views of the sea. The floor is dark oak parquet with marble edging. A rug in natural “abaca” fibre covers the entire surface area of the living space, while the ceiling is made of larch wood, like the wall panels.

The upper deck lobby, decorated with a French masterpiece, faces out onto two floor-to-ceiling windows that make the area feel spacious and airy.

The upper deck lobby on Atlante

An incredible uninterrupted stem-to-stern experience leads to the wheel house with a Telemar integrated bridge, equipped with five interchangeable screens and touchscreen controls on glass panels. The bow features a large, elegant and innovative living area with clean lines and decked out in teak. The only furnishings are an up-and-down table opposite the bridge, as well as a few removable seats around it, all of which disappear into the flush deck. On each side of the table there are the bimini top poles, in gloss black-finish carbon fibre with integrated lights, which support the fully removable sun canopy.

Another significant innovation is the hidden hatch flush which leads to the bow mooring room. The ample bow space allows touch-and-go helicopters of up to three tonnes to land, with the possibility to remove the stanchions around the entire perimeter of the area. At the bow, there is a hidden telescopic carbon-fibre pole with lights for night-time running.

Atlante sun deck and pool

The sun deck can be accessed via a splendid open-riser staircase in polished steel with a glass and teak lifeline. The stern area is equipped for entertaining and is furnished with the same custom top-and-down tables and sofas featured in other outdoor areas. At the bow, the intimate relaxation zone is composed of a sunbathing area with an electrically manoeuvrable sunshade and a stunning swimming pool at the bow facing out onto the sea ahead. The swimming pool features consistant elements which characterise the entire vessel, such as the trapezoidal polished steel handrail, glass and metal trim.

The on-board entertainment system is completely integrated and controlled via iPads and iPhones. The automation system was developed in partnership with Videoworks.

Atlante is equipped with two Caterpillar 3512C engines that develop 1,230 kW @ 1800 RPM and propel the craft to a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.

CRN’s Atlante: Expect the Unexpected

  • By Diane M. Byrne
  • Updated: October 24, 2016

atlante yacht owner

A longtime criticism of mega-yachts holds that they sometimes look like wedding cakes. There’s one white level stacked atop the next, getting smaller as the decks get higher. Nothing could be further from the truth as far as Atlante is concerned. A CRN build, she dares to be different in so many ways, starting with her stylistically strong lines, made all the more bold by a pairing of black and metallic paint. Even more surprises await in how the interior of this 180-footer is arranged — and in how extraordinary detail went into seemingly simple things.

She is the reflection of an owner who has a laser-like focus on what suits him — someone who has anything but a “me too” personality. The owner gave a clear directive to Nuvolari Lenard, which designed Atlante ‘s distinctive profile with CRN’s naval-architecture office. He wanted the yacht to look aggressive and masculine, borrowing elements as much from military vessels as from sports cars. You’d be hard-pressed to find a soft edge in her exterior styling. In fact, the only real curves come in the bow flare. Even the transom and swim platform have angled edges, and all handrails aboard are trapezoidal. (That latter detail was a specific request of the owner, to better reflect light.) In addition to all of this, the owner was resolute that Atlante remain proportional from top to bottom. Few owners get as intimately involved in every detail of the design and construction process as he did. The result: Atlante rises four decks without seeming to.

Atlante, CRN, Superyacht

As unexpected as the profile is, the boarding process is even more so. Forget the usual passerelle extending from the transom to the main deck aft. In fact, the main deck isn’t even the “main” deck when it comes to welcoming guests. Atlante receives her guests primarily via the beach club. This is a yacht that won’t be spending much time stern-to in a Mediterranean marina — though should she be at one with a particularly high dock, a hydraulic passerelle will take guests to the upper (yes, upper) deck. Since the beach club is as much a receiving area as it is a sunning area, it’s fashioned much like a serene salon. Light-toned fir wood and teak set the mood, along with facing settees. Doors to port and starboard lead to symmetrical spaces devoted to well-being: a gym, and a spa with a massage table and Turkish bath. In addition, each side’s relaxation area has a fold-down platform for more of a connection with the sea.

MAKING THE MOST OF MARBLE

Rarely do you see a mega-yacht that makes as much use of marble as Atlante . The stone doesn’t just line the en suite baths. Varying tones of light and dark marble, each with varying veins as well, adorn walls and soles alike. A white Carrara marble staircase leads from the main deck down to the guest staterooms. Another visually arresting stairway, this time in gray Carnico marble with teak, takes guests from the beach club up to the main deck. Most striking, though, is the foyer leading to the owner’s suite. Gray-veined white calacatta vagli marble rises floor to ceiling to each side.

Atlante, CRN, Superyacht

Beach clubs often have direct access to the main deck. Atlante follows suit, but in her own way. Walls of marble (see “Making the Most of All that Marble”) flow up the stairs to an alfresco area — sort of. If you take a close look at Atlante ‘s profile, you won’t find an open aft deck. There are openings, however, in the form of slat-like designs parallel to her beam and two significant opening side hatches. When those hatches are flipped up and the crew sets up the seating arrangement, the feeling of spaciousness is sensational.

Note the mention of the crew having to set up seating. This part of Atlante is a multipurpose area. When Atlante is underway, her three tenders (two designed by Nuvolari Lenard) are kept here. At anchor, the toys get unloaded via overhead cranes, making room for settees. Conversations can flow easily as everyone enjoys the scenery. A screen also comes down from overhead to turn the area into a seaside cinema. Day or night, the 36-foot-beam spot can host parties. And with the side hatches closed, those parties become quite private.

Atlante, CRN, Superyacht, Design, Patrick Gilles, Dorothée ­Boissier

Privacy was a key concept for the owner in conceiving Atlante . Smoked glass flanking the side decks shields guests without obstructing views. Perhaps the best example of privacy comes just forward of the wheelhouse. What at first glance is simply an expanse of teak boards stretching to the bow is home to a cleverly hidden dining area. At the press of a button, a hi-lo table rises from the deck. Since the top follows the camber of the deck, it’s easy to not even realize this seating/dining option exists until it’s set up. Glossy black Bimini supports made of carbon fiber can be installed to each side of the table. The poles have integrated lights to make dining or relaxing after the sun goes down a pleasure.

From choosing the smoked oak and other rich woods used throughout to requesting a mooring room (hidden, for aesthetics), the owner of Atlante had strong ideas on how to make his yacht truly his own. Dan Lenard of Nuvolari Lenard calls Atlante “a high-impact yacht, whose determined military look becomes soft on the sea,” and a yacht packed with “original solutions.” Originality can sometimes stray too far into novelty and lose sight of utility. Atlante suffers no such fate, keeping function at the forefront of matters for guests and crew alike.

Atlante, CRN, Superyacht

ALTERNATE OFFICE HOURS

Most master suites aboard modern mega-yachts contain dedicated offices. Not the one on Atlante , however. The owner told the design and build teams that he didn’t plan to work much while enjoying his yacht. If and when he does need to conduct business, there’s a simple solution that honors the spirit of the suite, letting it remain a respite. A tabletop slides along rails mounted parallel to the room-length leather settee to starboard. He can slide it to wherever he wishes to sit, then stash it away just as easily.

Motor Yacht

This yacht is the outcome of the outstanding job performed by design firm Nuvolari Lenard, that pencilled her outer lines, and CRN’s Engineering Department, which was in charge of naval engineering.

Nuvolari Lenardi had already successfully cooperated with the Shipyard on several megayachts, including 43-metre 'Magnifica’, 46-metre ‘Clarena' and 'Saramour', and 72-metre 'Azteca'.

“Launching a new yacht is always a moment of great pride for the entire Shipyard” – says CRN’s Chairman and CEO Lamberto Tacoli - “as emotions go hand in hand with the satisfaction of knowing that each and every one of our products is going to represent our brand and Made-in-Italy yachting across the world’s seas. The ‘ATLANTE’ is an extraordinary jewel – a very innovative one – we can truly be proud of. We are deeply grateful to the Owner Company for choosing us to build such an extraordinary yacht; to the design firm Nuvolari Lenard, that through the 'ATLANTE' have once more confirmed their incredible creativity; and to all CRN’s workers and subcontractors who were involved in this project from its very beginning to its final completion".

Entirely built in Ancona, this yacht can boast a purposely strong stylistic identity, which draws inspiration from some elements typical of military crafts: square shapes, sharp lines, and innovative, sophisticated design solutions - these are the distinguishing features of the Ancona-based shipyard's brand-new yacht.

The ’ATLANTE’, 55 metres long and having a 10.20-metre beam, develops over 5 decks featuring strikingly original solutions.

Superyachts aren’t just for the super-rich: Hundreds of scientists have used them for ocean research

superyacht moored at marina

For almost two years, Robert Brewin collected data from the bow of a superyacht as it sailed pristine waters from the Caribbean Sea to the Antarctic Ocean. 

The  Archimedes , a 222-foot (68-meter) “adventure” yacht then owned by the late hedge funder James Simons, boasts a gym, a jacuzzi and an elevator. But between 2018 and 2020, Brewin was concerned only with the boat’s Sea-Bird Scientific Solar Tracking Aiming System, installed to measure light reflecting off of the water. A senior lecturer at the UK’s University of Exeter, Brewin and his colleagues were analyzing microplankton — microscopic organisms at the base of the marine food chain — by studying the ocean’s color. The Sea-Bird’s readouts helped them verify satellite imagery. 

Brewin’s was not your typical superyacht itinerary, but he is one of hundreds of scientists to have used an adventure yacht — also known as expedition or explorer yachts — to conduct research on the ocean. In a  paper  published in January, Brewin and his co-authors touted the potential of “harnessing superyachts” for science, concluding that “reaching out to wealthy citizen scientists may help fill [research capability] gaps.” 

It’s a view shared — and being pushed — by the Yacht Club of Monaco and the Explorers Club, a New York City-based organization focused on exploration and science (of which, full disclosure, I am a member). In March, the groups co-hosted an environmental symposium that included an  awards ceremony  for yacht owners who “stand out for their commitment to protecting the marine environment.” The  Archimedes  won a “Science & Discovery” award. 

“If a yacht is operating 365 days a year, rather than having it sit idle it’d be much better for it to contribute a positive return through science and conservation,” says Rob McCallum, an Explorers Club fellow and founder of US-based EYOS Expeditions, which runs adventure yacht voyages. 

EYOS charters yachts from private owners for its excursions, and is a founding member of Yachts for Science, a four-year-old organization that matches privately owned yachts with scientists who need time at sea. (Other members include yacht builder Arksen, media firm BOAT International, and nonprofits Nekton Foundation and Ocean Family Foundation.) Yachts for Science will enable about $1 million worth of donated yacht time this year, McCallum says, a figure he expects to hit $15 million by 2029. 

“There’s a personal satisfaction that we are contributing to something that is bigger than us,” says Tom Peterson, who co-owns an insurance underwriting company in California and has what he jokingly refers to as a “mini superyacht.” Every year for the past decade, Peterson has donated about 15 to 20 days of time and fuel on the 24-meter  Valkyrie  to scientists, who he takes out himself as a licensed captain and former scuba dive operator. He often works with the Shark Lab at California State University Long Beach, and allows researchers to stay aboard for days at a time instead of having to constantly make the 1.5-hour trip to and from shore. 

To link up with scientists, Peterson works with the International SeaKeepers Society, a Florida-based nonprofit that engages the yachting community to support ocean conservation and research. “The more we understand things about the ocean in general, the better we all are in the long run,” he says. 

When “superyacht” and “the environment” appear in the same sentence, it’s usually in a different context. In 2019,  one study estimated  that a single 71-meter superyacht has the same annual carbon footprint as about 200 cars. In 2021, another  paper  found that superyachts were the single greatest contributor to the carbon footprint of 20 of the world’s most prominent billionaires, accounting for 64% of their combined emissions.

“If you really want to respect the environment, you can just go surf,” says Grégory Salle, a senior researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research and author of the book  Superyachts: Luxury, Tranquility and Ecocide . Salle is open to the idea that superyachts could be used to advance scientific research, but says it’s contradictory for anyone to buy a superyacht and claim to be truly concerned about the environment.

McCallum says people who own adventure yachts tend to be younger than your standard superyacht owner, and have a particular interest in remote and pristine places. “They’re not the sort of people that are content to just hang out in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean,” he says. “Antarctica, the Arctic, the remote Indian Ocean, the remote Pacific Ocean, the Subantarctic islands… that’s where you’re going to find us delivering our services.”

Explorer yachts aren’t the only way scientists can reach those destinations, but demand for dedicated research vessels does outstrip available supply. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), arguably the world’s greatest collector of oceanographic data, has a fleet of  15 research and survey vessels  for the use of its scientists. Academic researchers can also apply to use the fleet, often at a subsidized rate. But scientists request roughly 15,000 to 20,000 days of boat time every year. In 2019, NOAA was able to fill just 2,300 of them, according to an internal study.

That gap is particularly problematic as the planet warms. Oceans provide services that scientists call “ existentially important ,” producing more than  half of the oxygen we breathe  and serving as the world’s  largest carbon sink . They also absorb  30% of our carbon emissions  and  90% of the excess heat generated by them .

G. Mark Miller, a retired NOAA Corps officer who was in charge of several of the agency’s research vessels, has a different solution in mind when it comes to bolstering ocean research: smaller boats, fit for purpose. Superyachts can cost north of $500 million, he says; “why don’t we build a hundred $5 million vessels and flood the ocean science community?” 

After leaving NOAA, Miller in 2021 launched Virginia-based Greenwater Marine Sciences Offshore with a vision of building a global fleet of research vessels and offering their use at affordable prices. He says hiring a NOAA boat can cost scientists between $20,000 and $100,000 per day. GMSO plans to charge less than $10,000 a day for most missions. The company says it’s close to acquiring its first three vessels.

Miller hopes his business model will help scientists conduct the work they need to — particularly in under-served regions like the Asia-Pacific — without worrying about getting a luxury yacht covered in “muddy worms, plankton goo, dead fish [and] whale snot.” He describes yacht owners donating boat time to scientists as “better than nothing,” and says it can help get regular people interested in science and exploration. 

Christopher Walsh, captain of the  Archimedes , says he and his crew love taking part in science initiatives, especially when there’s an educational component. “I get a real thrill when we can stream to the classrooms — you can’t imagine the enthusiasm the kids display,” Walsh says. “That gives me a lot of hope for the future.”

Yacht Rock Revue pay tribute to smooth rock classics that are more relevant than ever

Byline photo of Charlie Hickman

Providing entertainment and relaxation for their audience is always top of mind for the members of Yacht Rock Revue. The smooth rock tribute band has been jamming in front of live audiences for nearly two decades, and it shows no signs of chilling out — unlike its music.

These purveyors of pure relaxation will bring their nostalgic sound to Coralville’s 4thFest on July 3. Ahead of its concert, Yacht Rock Revue frontman and singer Nicholas Niespodziani expressed how exciting it is to play for large crowds. When the band formed in Atlanta in 2007, it was mostly restricted to clubs and small venues.

“We were playing in places that are sweaty and drunk, it was a debaucherous time,” Niespodziani said. “Now we’re older and distinguished and playing big venues with massive audiences, and people treat us like artists.”

The band wasn’t always strictly a yacht rock group. Several band members, including another founding member and frontman Peter Olson, formed an indie rock band first. It wasn’t until a gig which was initially intended to be a one-off show that Yacht Rock Revue was formed.

To fit the style of the club they were performing at, the band members played a few soft rock classics and immediately noticed a reaction from the crowd. Choosing the genre the band would adhere to wasn’t a long deliberation process. It happened then and there.

“It was pretty much an accident,” Niespodziani said. “People loved it so much that the club owner told us we needed to come back, and so we did.”

The band was made up entirely of Atlanta musicians at the time, many of whom were in school. Although they had experienced minor success with their indie rock venture, with songs in local commercials and going on small tours, the band shifted to yacht rock completely and renamed itself “’70s AM Gold,” a name which would not last long as they quickly learned the term “yacht rock” drew much more attention.

Niespodziani dropped out of law school, and the band became real. Now bolstering a roster of 10 band members, Yacht Rock Revue has only grown since its humble beginnings in 2007.

Throughout their career, they’ve played alongside various artists whose music they tribute every night. When being joined on stage by the very legends who inspire them, they find they’re met with skepticism at first.

“We’re on stage with old-timers who say, ‘What is this? Who is this tribute band?’ But as as they realize how serious we are about the music, we win them over,” Niespodziani explained. The band’s dedication to revitalizing the music has landed it an opening act spot on tour with Train and REO Speedwagon this summer.

“It’s going to be nuts. We’re playing in giant amphitheaters on a level we’ve never experienced before,” Niespodziani said excitedly. As soon as the band leaves 4thFest, it’ll be hopping in tour buses to play to larger crowds than it’s ever seen. “We’re hopeful we can win over REO Speedwagon too.”

Both their 4thFest appearance and nationwide tour are stops in their usually 80-100-show year. Despite the high number of performances, Niespodziani never finds himself growing tired of it. In a time when yacht rock seems to be growing in popularity once again, the band is experiencing more and more success.

“We’re trying to bring that yacht vibe back to 2024,” Niespodziani explained. “It’s music of escape; it’s made to get away from the troubles of the world.”

At a time when people need an escape from the world more than ever, Yacht Rock Revue will bring its nostalgic sound and calming atmosphere to Coralville’s 4th Fest. Niespodziani is as excited as the audience is to experience the concert.

“I love what I do, singing songs that make people happy,” said Niespodziani. “It’s a great way to unplug, sing silly songs, and have fun. That’s why the music is so timeless.”

Check out Arthur Blank's brand new $180M 'superyacht'

atlante yacht owner

Channel 2 Sports Director Zach Klein sat down with Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank on Wednesday to talk about Super Bowl LIII.

ATLANTA — It looks like Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank just made a pretty big purchase.

According to multiple reports, the 76-year-old spent $180 million on a massive 295-foot yacht.

The ship is called DreAMBoat (Blank’s initials are AMB) and was constructed by Oceanco.

According to a video posted to YouTube, the boat has a large swimming pool and the owners’ desk has a private hot tub.

There are 11 sleeping cabins – enough to house 23 guests and 33 crew members.

According to Oceanco, the DreAMBoat is on track for delivery before summer.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently purchased a $250 million yacht. Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder owns one worth $100 million.

the call of the crossing, transatlantic superyachts

The unexpected joys of sailing across the Atlantic

Three owners joined their superyachts to cross the Atlantic and found more than they expected in the vastness of the ocean, they tell Caroline White .

Crossing oceans is a necessity if you want to get your yacht to the good stuff on either side. But, of course, the owner doesn’t need to be on board – that’s what paid crew (or even a yacht transport ship) are for. The conventional view is that two weeks and 3,000 nautical miles of rolling Atlantic – with bad weather or a technical failure the only likely source of excitement – make the Atlantic milk run a chore, a bore, even a little frightening: a venture you’d probably want to get a pay cheque out of.

But three owners defied this received wisdom to see other possibilities in joining their sailing yachts across the pond, from Europe to the Caribbean. Ilia Rigas and her daughter Nepheli, owners of 50-metre Almyra II , started from Syracuse in Sicily, while Nina Vibe-Petersen, owner of 54-metre Parsifal III and 52-metre Q , started from Gibraltar on the latter. Both yachts left in November last year to arrive in St Barths.

“Our goal was to do a circumnavigation,” says Rigas. “This is the reason we bought a Perini . We thought okay, let’s do the crossing, let’s go to the Caribbean.” She was inspired, in part, by the poem Ithaka , by the great Greek poet C.P. Cavafy, about how the value of a great journey lies in the journey itself, rather than the destination.

For Vibe-Petersen, a physical ailment brought with it the impetus to seize the day. “I was planning to do it with my family, but nobody ever had the time. And then last year I broke my shoulder, and I felt so helpless. I was like, I have to do it now.  And then some of my friends said they would love to go with me – they’re not used to sailing at all, so that was exciting.”

In terms of prep, Vibe-Petersen stocked up on craft materials, while Rigas made sure they had a wealth of movies queued up – both on the reasonable assumption that they’d have long, empty days to fill. Nepheli, meanwhile, didn’t think too much about it at all. “I have a  few friends that have done it and some of them didn’t have the best experience,” she says. “So I shied away from really thinking about it or discussing it until I was on the boat. I was trying to focus on the moment and not overthink anything.”

Initially, at least, this trepidation was well-founded, as Ilia recalls. “The weather turned bad when we reached Gibraltar and some crew left us out of fear, leaving me in charge of the ship’s kitchen,” she says. “I had reservations about cooking for the crew and loved ones, but I managed to brave the situation, wading through the unfamiliar kitchen and huge waves with nothing but grit and determination. Even with all the uncertainties, I found some much-needed time to relax. I started practising yoga, walking on the treadmill, and looking at the sea’s vastness while listening to the white noise of the ocean.”

Vibe-Petersen and her friends also tried yoga on deck but, “we were just rolling around”, so they put on loud music and danced: “that was really fun”. The endless sea and sky, far from requiring distractions, proved hypnotic, even addictive.

“There’s no light pollution and the stars almost hang,” she says. “You think you can actually take them with your hands. It’s just so beautiful and so peaceful to be there – I think we got less sleep because we wanted to be up and see the sunrise, and then we also wanted to see the sundown.”

In the end, the crossing experience confounded apprehensions for the owners of both yachts. Rigas, who heads the sustainability department of a FTSE 250 energy company, usually has scant time alone with her thoughts. “Normally, I cannot concentrate because my life is so hectic but here, without anything else, I could focus; I could read a book, play backgammon, things that I cannot normally do in my daily routine. And that’s what I loved.” In effect, the difference in situation changed the way her mind worked, “Automatically though, without really making any effort. Because you’re there and you cannot escape.” She kept a journal for the first time in her life, and it helped her reflect on: “my needs, what gives me passion, and what brings me down in life”.

Nepheli planned to catch up on work during the long hours at sea. But instead, she ended up on night watches with her father. “It was very quiet,” she recalls. “You could hear nothing but the sea and the waves. You’re in the middle of the Atlantic so there’s not much to see at night, other than the stars. Sometimes the sea was shining from the plankton. It was the two of us – no one else around. There were times we were talking the whole time. There were other times that we were completely silent. It was amazing.”

In the middle of the Atlantic, owners and guests also spend considerably more time in close proximity to the crew than they would normally. “All of us had a lot of fun with the crew and they were very engaged – they wanted to give us a beautiful first [crossing],” says Vibe-Petersen. “When we were halfway they dressed up and we were [as is traditional] baptised in rotten food and eggs; we also had to swim when we were halfway with all the crew, and had a lot of nice talks on the watches. I think everybody enjoyed that very much and yes, we became very good friends.”

On board Almyra II the owners strived for a relatively egalitarian lifestyle. “We were trying to prevent a disconnect between us and the crew,” says Nepheli. “All of us did six-hour shifts to support the crew – on a boat going 24 hours a day, everyone needs to help. At the halfway point we had a big party on board, with a lunch all together. It was very important for us to have the sense that we’re in this together.”

What about when they finally arrived in the Caribbean – were they itching to jump onto a powder sand beach? “Normally when I come to St Barths I’m very excited,” says Vibe-Petersen. “But this time we were almost crying; we didn’t want to get off the boat again.” Similarly, Nepheli recalls waiting gloomily for customs to clear them into one of the world’s most beautiful anchorages. It is perhaps Ilia, however, for whom the crossing was the most profound experience. “I think when you know that it’s going to finish soon, this makes it more magical,” she says. “I learned to appreciate nature more than before, watching sunsets, the shapes of the clouds.”

The experience was so affecting, in fact, that she did it again. “On my first crossing it took a while for me to realise that I had started with the weight of my city burdens on my shoulders. I had let the problems of my city life, my business life and the crew life follow me onto the ship, inadvertently impacting my experience,” she says.  “I knew I wanted to cross again, but this time I wanted to do it all on my own. I left behind any responsibility, family or friends and embarked on my journey with the minimum-possible professional crew. By the second crossing, I felt content exploring and soaking in the different Caribbean cultures, ending the journey with the St Barths regatta. Having such an amazing racing experience made it all so much more memorable. I returned home alone, feeling energised and reinvigorated to take on whatever came my way.”

Throughout this second, pared-back crossing she was freer to do as she wished – she loved being out in the open, setting the sails, letting different music dictate her mood. “The repetition of my daily routine made me feel like I belonged, and I found myself laughing every morning. I savoured every ounce of time away from the pressure and guilt of free time found in the hustle and bustle of city life,” she says.

Aside from the thrill of adventure – exploring vast stretches of open water – this environment offers vistas and sunsets unlike any you can experience elsewhere. On a practical level, Rigas points out, a crossing tests a superyacht’s endurance, stability and navigation systems in the most extreme conditions. It also fosters team bonding and forges deep connections among those on board – no bad thing if you want to keep a well-loved crew for a long time.

She is evangelical about the experience, which afforded her self-reflection and personal growth. It could provide a valuable reset for busy owners before diving into a season in the Med or Caribbean. A superyacht offers plenty of experiences you can’t have anywhere else, and this, perhaps, is a lesser-known one. “I know people who have everything yet fail to connect with nature and themselves. It’s not about having; it’s about daring to take action and having a passion for life. Talking to interesting people and allowing their stories to inspire you to find new ways of living is what truly matters. Remember,  where there is a will, there is a way – excuses will disappear.”

It seems that while there may be spectacular cruising grounds on either side of the Atlantic, there’s plenty of good stuff in the middle too.
