SuperYacht Montigne in Corfu

The Assignment

Fly to the Greek Islands, board a three masted superyacht rigged as a schooner and cruise the area as the yacht and the crew are put through their paces, then write about the experiences in SuperYacht World magazine.

The SuperYacht

At 57 metres (187 feet) the three masted staysail schooner Montigne has been built for an experienced superyacht owner who is planning to use her both for private use and as a commercial charter vessel. Built to the MCA LY2 code and the owner’s demanding levels of comfort, she is one of the largest sailing yachts available for charter through Ocean Independence.

The Location

Fly to Corfu, via Athens with Olympic Air the Greek national airline. Corfu, Kerkyra, Corcyra or as it is known locally Kerkyra is the northernmost Island in the Ionian sea and the westernmost part of Greece.

This most enchanting of islands, is densely covered in Olive groves and cypresses trees. It is fringed by secluded anchorages and sandy beaches with shingle coves, the perfect spot in which to drop anchor. We hope to visit marinas fishing harbours, tavernas, restaurants, hotels and all of the other tourist facilities and will report on this blog when the Internet permits us to do so. Stay Tuned!
