Summer Yacht Sojourn

After such a challenging year, don’t you deserve to escape to indigo seas? Sail away under sultry summer sun on the the world’s largest wooden sailing yacht. There are only a couple of stunning three-masted wooden boats plying the Med Seas, and this is the largest.

Feeling the surge of a ship under the power of the wind and looking up at sails billowed by the sea breeze is an exhilarating pleasure. Indeed, one of the most beautiful classic sailing yachts of all time, this three-masted schooner was a masterpiece when launched in 1927 and remains in immaculate form today, she is surely one of the most beautiful. Three tall masts spring from her sleek low black hull lending her a gorgeous profile. An example of magnificent craftsmanship combined with meticulous design, she has led a colorful life. Beautifully appointed and fast, she was lovingly restored to the specs that her designer had intended with a major restoration in the mid 20th Century.

There is a main master cabin with a king-size bed and an ensuite bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath tub, two cabins with queen-sized beds and ensuite baths, two cabins with twin beds and another cabin with a king-size bed as well as room for the captain and crew.

The Mediterranean is where you may glimpse the elegant Starfire cruising this summer amid calm gin clear seas. Ports abound with shop till you drop boutiques and Michelin star tables. Escape the congested summer roads in chic ports of call, slip into port, mosey amid cobblestone streets, dine and dash back to the tranquil seas aboard your snazzy yacht. Each morning awake to a different port or linger away from the crowded villages. A treasure-chest of sights, experiences and adventures await on the sea.
