Exploring The Globe

Working on a superyacht is an adventure unlike any other. From exploring beautiful locations around the world to enjoying all the luxuries that come with sailing on a multi-million dollar vessel, it’s no wonder why so many people choose to take on this life. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular crossings for yacht crews around the globe! 

The Caribbean-Europe Crossing

If you’re looking for a sailing adventure of epic proportions, a passage from the Caribbean to Europe is an ideal choice. This route will take you through the Panama Canal, across the Atlantic Ocean and along the coasts of Portugal and Spain before reaching your final destination in Europe. The total journey is estimated at around 2,500 nautical miles, so it’s best to plan your route wisely. A good idea is to break up this voyage into smaller legs of 250-300 miles each. This will give you plenty of time to explore some of the remote islands along the way while still making headway towards your destination. An obvious reason why the Caribbean-Europe crossing is so popular is because it’s a great way to escape the cold weather in Europe. The Caribbean Sea is warm and welcoming, and it’s a great place to spend a few weeks or even months during the winter months. It is also a great way to experience many different cultures. When you’re sailing from the Caribbean to Europe, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the culture and lifestyle of both regions. And last but not least, The views from your yacht will be absolutely breathtaking, and you’ll never forget the experience of sailing across the Atlantic Ocean.

The South Pacific Crossing

Another popular route for yacht crews is from New Zealand to Tahiti or Fiji – two beautiful destinations in the South Pacific. This route takes you through some of the world’s most diverse landscapes, including lush rainforests, pristine beaches and classic Polynesian culture. The journey itself can be divided up into three main legs: New Zealand to Tonga (1,200 nautical miles), Tonga to French Polynesia (1,400 nautical miles) and French Polynesia back to New Zealand (2,100 nautical miles). This route is particularly attractive because it offers great opportunities for fishing and snorkeling en route as well as stunning views of rugged mountains and volcanic islands. 

The Mediterranean Crossing

Finally, if you’re looking for a shorter but no less exciting sailing adventure then why not try a crossing from Italy or Greece to Morocco? This route takes you through some incredible scenery while allowing you plenty of time ashore in port cities along the way such as Rome, Barcelona and Marseilles. The total journey is around 1,500 nautical miles depending on which ports you choose to stop at along the way. It’s also worth noting that this trip can be completed in just over two weeks if done nonstop!
