TAKING ON THE WORLD: ANTARES

Many Royal Huisman yacht Owners are actively involved in global sailing.

Antares’ Owners acquired their 40m / 132ft luxury world cruising ketch in 2016 and subsequently commissioned the shipyard’s dedicated refit division, Huisfit, as part of the yacht’s meticulously planned preparation for expeditions with their family. In the following years Antares extensively explored the Indian Ocean and Pacific. Her Owners kindly shared with the readers of ‘inhuis’ a selection of wonderful photos of their recent endeavors in Indonesia.

“Thank you so much, to the Royal Huisman and Huisfit team, for the incredible support and guidance over the last five years. Even after all these years, Antares continues to be our safe and reliable magic carpet across the seas!”

“Some anchorages in Raja Ampat, Misool, Triton Bay, Wakatobi and a few parts in between.”

“We have now been in Indonesia for 5 months of cruising.

An amazingly beautiful country with some of the biggest smiles around. With the pandemic, unfortunately we have not been able to enjoy the local culture and more land activities.

We’ve had five months of amazing diving, snorkeling, paddling, and seeing some amazing scenery.”

“…we spent seven fabulous mornings snorkeling with whale sharks in Triton Bay Indonesia.

There were as many as four at a time.

The Owners of Antares: “Thank you so much, to the Royal Huisman and Huisfit team, for the incredible support and guidance over the last five years as we journeyed from Europe to Asia. A superyacht in remote places requires the dedication and constant availability of technical staff from the shipyard which built her. Even after all these years, Antares continues to be our safe and reliable magic carpet across the seas!”

Off the beaten track – Indonesia

Sailors tend to be adventurous people with a curiosity to see the world: individuals who know instinctively that the best possible way to encounter the wonders of the planet is by sea. Better still, from aboard your own yacht.

Despite this, and perhaps for reasons of restricted time or comforting familiarity, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean remain among the most popular sailing destinations for cruising yachtsmen. Yet the rewards of more distant regions can be so exceptional that the effort of reaching them will be repaid many times over, throughout a lifetime.

And for those prepared to go ‘off the beaten track’, few destinations offer richer rewards than the magnificent Indonesian Archipelago as experienced by the Owners of several Royal Huisman yachts.
