Cruising Special: Around the world with Athos

Written by Gemma Fottles

For almost four years, the 62-metre Holland Jachtbouw sailing superyacht Athos has been touring the world’s oceans on an extensive global tour. Visiting paradisiacal destinations such as the Maldives, Micronesia, the South Pacific, Greenland and the Caribbean, passionate Captain Anthony Brookes and his crew are now almost at the end of their spectacular journey.

I have lots of secret amazing spots which I use time and time again for our guests, but I prefer to keep them secret! Besides, a big part of the adventure of a round-the-world trip is the discovery aspect. My top tips for owners and captains thinking about doing a RTW trip is to stop thinking and go do it. What else did you get a yacht for!? Life is what you make it.”
