Once upon a short time ago a French man named François Spoerry had a unique
and watery vision for his yacht. His wish was to create a beautiful home
where he could moor his boat in the backyard – the visionary Gallic was
an avid sailor as well as being a creative architect. And lucky for an elite
few, his wish came true.
The development he designed in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez in the south of
France has attracted investors and yacht owners from all over the world who

colours was designed to resemble the romantic Italian city with th... (more)
There is no other way to describe the Ligurian coast in the north of Italy
other than simply gorgeous and naturally so. Sailing along in your yacht

Tall, white, and beautiful! She has seduced a tall, dark, Norwegian captain.
Fiords, adventure, camaraderie, and treasure islands (well maybe!) all await
you when you set sail on the Sorlandet, the oldest functioning full-rigged
tall ship in the world, captained by Jarle Flatebo.
Superyachts are awesome but a traditional tall ship is as equally inspiring,
