Travel Far And Wide

16th Sep 2016

While previously virtually all yachtsmen kept their boats sheltered in well-heeled harbours, now a handful have glimpsed the potential of cruising much farther afield - and are bringing this passion to life by building and outfitting yachts with the potential to cruise every last metre of the world.

The 45m (147') Latitude, built by Timmerman Yachts in 2008, recently completed a 106-day, 9,420-nautical mile journey that included the Northwest Passage. A route so treacherous that barely more than 200 vessels have ever traversed it.

To give you some context, more people have climbed Mount Everest than have cruised this route. Navigating the dangerous ice packed waters between the northern Atlantic and Pacific oceans is not for the fainthearted - it's for the thrill-seeking luxury traveller.
