The Yacht

Description

The yacht is a 60 foot sloop built by Colvic Craft in the UK in 1996. She was designed by David Pedrick for the Clipper Round the World race and has been raced around the world four times and to Greenland three times. Previous owner was Clipper Ventures Plc based in Gosport, UK. This company was founded by the legendary sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, who was the first person to sail around the world non-stop and single-handed in 1969. Sir Robin was in Ísafjörður in the summer of 2005 on the yacht (then named Antiope Clipper) together with Sir Chris Bonington and other friends enroute to Greenland. Over some chicken curry and beer onboard, we decided to fulfill an old dream and buy the yacht!
The vessel is very sturdy and spacious. Accommodation is simple and utilitarian, but seamanlike. There are bunks/berths, good galley and spacious communal spaces, two heads (toilets) and one shower. The vessel was initially fitted out for 15 crew but can now accommodate 12 people, 2 crew and 10 guests. The boat is equipped according to strict Icelandic regulations when it comes to emergency equipment. Satellite phone is onboard that can be used by our guests for a reasonable price.
