Curanta Cridhe in the Canary Islands for Winter 2017-2018

A few weeks ago, Hurricanes Irma and Maria had devastating paths across the Caribbean Islands and as a result, many charter yachts present in the area have suffered important damages. Also several traditional charter destinations such as St-Martin, St-Barth, the BVI’s, USVI - to name a few - have experienced major destruction in terms of marine infrastructure and logistic facilities.

Curanta Cridhe’s first charter in the Med

Our first charter just ended in Bonifacio, Corsica and we can proudly say it was a true success. We were blessed to receive on board Curanta Cridhe a very nice Brazilian family. I picked them up at the Calvi airport in Corsica. They began their family vacation with a few days in Paris, France, then they put their bags on the teak deck of Curanta Cridhe

Curanta Cridhe is primarily a great cruising boat. She has been designed with blue water circum-navigation in mind and can certainly cruise with style in luxury. But today, we may add more qualities to this superb sailing vessel. We won first place in our multihull class at the 2016 BVI Spring Regatta!
