The 73.3 metre superyacht Dragonfly has arrived in Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean following calls for aid for vessels in the area regarding the devastation caused by Cyclone Pam over the past few days. Dragonfly made the journey to Vanuatu in just over three and a half days, travelling a distance of 1,600 nm.
While the situation on the ground remains dynamic, the yacht and her crew have been tasked by the Vanuatu government with supplying aid and providing a medical response to the Shepherd Islands, just north east of Efate where Port Vila is located. This area has seen 80-100% of all villages destroyed and has no access to fresh water, food or shelter.
Captain Mike Gregory comments, “Dragonfly has extensively cruised the beautiful and remote areas of Vanuatu over the past 2 years. We were shocked and saddened to see the devastation caused by Cyclone Pam, and we know that the resources we have onboard can make a huge difference and will ultimately save lives."
The vessel is under management with Y.CO.
